    I got the seats from yahoo auctions japan through a contact of Brad's. It really depends what you bid on them as to what you pay. I got the rails from yahoo too.

    Thanks for the thoughts on the wiring - I wanted to really tuck that area of the car as much as possible as its the most visible in the enginebay.

    Its not actually green, its a dark gold colour. Camera makes it come out green. Its not a "recaro" if you have to retrim it. You may as well get a set of monza's

    Just finished up for the night - the stereo is wired in properly. Solder connections and heatshrinked. Everything is taped neatly under the dash.

    ^ Actually the headunit i've had for about 5yrs. Bought it new soon after I got the car.

    Back in the day it was a decent one. I dont care for fancy ipod connectivity or oled colour screens. This one matches the stock dash lighting colours perfectly.

    It also has speaker timing control. Its a CDA9815 if you want to look up its features.

    Not yet sound tested. Will probably have a go at that tonight. Fire her up - will be good to hear the old alpine system again after a year of distortion and rattles in the $60 3rd gen

    Keep in mind - none of the sound system is new. Its the same system I have had since I put it in years ago. Only difference is that it'll be wired up neatly now

    I'll take some photos of the climate control working too.
