Default Weathershields

As it's raining a fair bit up here at the moment
I finally got around to putting these weather shields on
Got them from windowvisorcomau on eBay



They look very good from the outside
They really do distort the view from the drivers seat though
And the A pillar is so bloody big now I found it necessary to slow down at roundabouts
There is a huge gap between the start of the weathershield and the wing mirror
This made a huge noise at highway speed



There is also some strange effect where the end of the weathershield is catching the air and pushing it straight at my right ear.
Dunno how long they'll stay on

Default Lower Front Door HInge

The lower hinge on my drivers door has been groaning/creaking a lot lately.
Whilst I was in the mood I thought I'd better clean it properly.



Couple of blocks of wood to hold the door up
By removing the mudflap and inner fender plastic I was able to get at the A pillar bolts



Whilst on the bench I noticed there are some little gaps in the hinge pins
(but I couldn't get the camera to focus close up)
There is also an opening at the top of door hold roller
I clamped the hinge to the bench and closed it
Then with a pair of multi-grips I was able to remove the spring
I cleaned the whole thing in petrol, washed and dried it.
Finally I dosed it up with oil through the small gaps and top of the roller
Dunno what the manual says but a couple of drops from an oil can and let it soak down should be good for these hinges.

Default Stereo Install Take Two

Well that was Quick
The computerised stereo loom turned up yesterday
CRUX Interface Solutions SOOCR-26
How can I get a parcel from USA quicker than from Victoria
Anyway, had to work through this mess



Few hours later and finally got to this stage #WTF
But MUSIC



Mucked around a bit more to discover removing the intermediate loom is OK
Swapped the vents into the new fascia



It was easy enough to bend the tabs with a pair of pliers



Not real impressed with the plastic stereo mounting brackets
After finding some screws to suit to radio
Took me at least half a dozen goes fitting/removing the stereo to get it lined up
But now it Almost looks like a bought one
Screen level with the fascia and the buttons slightly proud



I've gained; two USB ports, reverse camera, Apple CarPlay makes everything handsfree,
capacitive touch screen, better sound quality
and a high pitched whine from the tweeters but only when the ignition is on

I've lost; CD player (no biggy), fader and the dash board is now in German



WARNING this a NO BEER job because it's a real mind &*^%

Not only did it reset to default Deutsche,
but it won’t let me change to any other language
Maybe I should've read this thread first ?

Default Amplifier Power Filter

So I drove down to Jaycar and picked up one of their 12V DC noise filters
Installed it directly into the back of the stereo and ...
nothing

So I engaged the old gray matter and started thinking,
the high pitched whine is only evident when IGN is on
The high pitched whine is NOT there on ACC
So maybe it's an amplifier issue
Ahh, there it is



The filter is now installed onto the amplifier power line
Took the opportunity to vacuum the wagon and clean the filthy trim



Combined with mucking around with the settings on the headunit high/low pass filters
The annoying whine is isolated to the front and rear left speakers and is slightly less than the above video.
Small mercies.

I'd personally recommend Bundaberg Rum for this type of job
Need something much stronger than beer
And I will be indulging in a few, after I pack up the tools, clean the pool, scoop the dog shit ...
Ahh life
Hope you all have a good one

Beer causes problems. Bundaberg solves problems, provides inspiration, calms me down, has a great medicinal value & even tastes good, what else can you get with all those qualities? You should have had a few samples before you started that job, it would have been much less taxing on the brain. Did I mention I think Bundaberg is good to drink?
