Post Re: ukrman - 92 MX-3 GS
Couple days ago decided to install the new stereo thats been sitting around for a couple of months. It turned out very nice, but was ALOT more work then I excpected lol. The worst was try to get all the wires from the door into the interior of the car through the little rubber tube. I had to drill holes in the harness for the door wires in order to fit my speaker wire. I put in all new wiring but still left the stock ones in case I ever decide to switch the speakers again.

heres the old speaker next to the new 5.25'' Infinity Kappa

I'm a bit picky when it comes to rims, but I really like yours. Car looks good and I esp. like how the tweeters look.

the only bad thing about those rims is cleaning them, they have so many places for the dirt and dust to accumulate lol

I think those visors really tie in well with your rear hatch wraparound spoiler thing!

Post Re: ukrman - 92 MX-3 GS
Finally got some free time, have a bunch of parts to install, but decided to start with the steering wheel. Bought it used about 6 months ago but just never had time to put it on.

Before
Image

with horn taken off
Image

everything taken off
Image

harness for the horn that came with sparco hub didn't fit right, and horn didn't work so I decided to use tha factory one (for horn, plus i left the wires for cruise control which is disconnected for now, but I'm hoping to make it functional again)
Image

so I modified the sparco hub to fit the stock harness
Image
Image
Image

finished product

Mothers Power Ball works well on wheels for getting into those crevases. Nice to see you spent the time to route your speaker wires properly. Routing them through the rubber tube can be a bit of a challenge but definitely better than drilling stupid holes. Why don't you give us the step by step on how you did your CF gauges. Wonder if Ryans rings would look good there? You can relocate your PS switch to foreword of the ignition switch. Dremel out a rectangular hole and epoxy the switch in place. Keep up the nice work. :D

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
