Google and you will find a bunch. I have considered removing my stereo (head unit) and installing a small 4 channel amplifier in the back of the cavity. Then installing a gauge face plate in the front and putting a 1/8" stereo jack in the lower corner of the face plate that runs to the RCA jacks in the amplifier. This would allow me to hook up and iPod, Sansa or the like. Some of the MP3 players even have FM stereo tuners that may work ok (although I am sure not as good).
i did one stereo removal on an elise, i filled the speaker holes with carbon fiber circles i cut out then i put sone door edge trim around them to "finish" them. then we moved the climate control to the radio hole, took a bit of fabricating to make it look nice, but it did end up beautiful. we also removed the back panel behind the seats, and i made a bracket to keep the rear interior lamp out of aluminum. but......i forgot to take pics:wallbang:
Wow, these are great ideas. Thanks. I'll post pics once I figure out which direction to go.
I will weigh the stereo parts that I remove. I have a pretty accurate scale, so I should be able to get within 1/10 of a pound (because I know some of us like that kind of accuracy).
This is the start of my weight loss program. I have been thinking a lot about dropping weight on the car.
I also lost about 18 pounds off my fat butt which helps too!
