New dash is in!!!!

Post  Captain Jack on 30/7/2008, 5:39 am

Cap'n Jack! New dash is in YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or YARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! as is more fitting

with the 'bodge it job' i had to do on it to make it for Fest, new one (or spare one that came with the car), is now in and so is the new LED dash illumination.

Thought may as well as the car was in pieces!!!

And WOW! looks like Dante's seventh circle of hell sitting in it at night, everything red and black, very mean and moody

No pics as yet a) is still bright sunshine & b) decided to leave the car in my parents garage after the break in whilst im not using it

I have to say that the Red lighting you had at Fest were... different! Looked a bit like a sinister brothel (I'm guessing as I've never been to one, before you ask!) but it made a wonderful change to the usual blue everywhere. I can't wait to see the final article. By the way, would you be interested in a pair of red neons? Twisted Evil

Anywhere! They are about 10" long. I was going to put one behind the grille so that it looked like it was glowing. Didn't really know what to do with the other one but I'm sure I would have found somewhere for it. But now I've decided not to do anything with them so they are going for a song... and I don't mean a sea shanty!

ok, im interested but you may have to hold on, as the new hood is arriving, as is new alloys, dvd player and probably a new TT exhaust, plus my own personal 'special touches'

Well I'll bring them along to the pub meeting and you can owe me if you like... I don't want much for them anyhow. But I'd like them to go to somebody who will use them creatively, and that's likely to be you. Everyone else seems to want blue or multicoloured!

NOOOOOOOO!!!! If you want to be different then you are not allowed one of them.... Sad

Still, at least I will be the only one in our group with a TT Mk2 (only 14 of those made), but I will also have a TT Mk3 in the garage to help with the exclusivity of them! All I need now is an original Mk1!!!! Shocked

Yeah, I got my order in ages ago, as Neil wanted to see a TT Mk2 that was designed for the Mk2 F or TF, and that is what my one is, but I have an extra elbow adapter pipe so it fits my Mk1 F. I thought I had better get one to try and help keep these things exclusive! Plus I plan on drilling some holes in my TT Mk2 for the mods for next years glow car competition! So that will also help with exclusivity as I will be trashing one!

As for how awsome they will be, that is somewhat unknown. Neil has re-designed the way you hang them which is a good thing, as the old welds were crap, but he also plans on them having a smaller box, and I'm not quite sure on what the effect will be. Sadly he isn't planning on trying to get the exhaust balanced more, but not a big issue for general use.

Ok, so not trying to put people off, but if you are thinking of getting one of these new TT exhausts I strongly suggest you come out with me in my car and her and feel the effect of it inside. I know plenty of people that have a TT and have then removed it cos they couldn't live with it. It effectively deffens you whn you are sat in the cabin. Not from a nice throaty exhaust noise, but from the constant reverberation that you get in the cabin. They sound great from outside but a nightmare form inside. That said I love it, but as for living with it everyday or a really long journey..... I'd go for one of the more mainstream ones like a milltek, or even the x-power one that maxines mum has, which has a really lovely note to it like the TT but without the down sides of the TT.

well great bit of info there..... i knew about the smallerbox but like you said not sure how that will work, it pretty wel that kinda think on one of my old cars, so will just have too see....

I think as me car is my everyday car (for now) then it's staying standard, but it is likely to be changed at some point when it becomes the weekedn car!

erm Sad we apear to have hijacked this one too!! Embarassed

It is difficult choosing an exhaust, as there is plenty of choice, and it's a personal thing. Best thing is to listen to them outside the car, but also to see what it is like driving both with hood up and down. Anyone who wants to know what a TT is like, just let me know at the pub meet and i'll let you take it out for a spin to find out!

Strange thing is that the TT exhausts have never done very well in the loudest exhaust competitions, yet they definitely cause the most noice inside the cabin.
