Been lurking on here for a very long time, and thought I should actually post something for a change. Had this cordia since I was 16, did her up as my first car and she is still going strong (21 now if anyone wants to know).

Image

Not all that much modded on the mechanical side of things. Running a TC06 off my spare cordia as the TC05 was stuffed when I got the car. Did a full rebuild a few years ago and a new clutch for good measure. Bought some slotted rotors, but turns out the hubs didn't like new bearings, so running sotck magna ones now.

Image
Image

Most of the work is on the interior. Its running a carpc with wifi, gps etc, hooked up to a 4channel amp for the speakers and a 2channel for the subs. Have a new mono on the way atm so i can run 1ohm load instead of a 4ohm. Also has a fusion alarm/remote locking kit.

Image
Image

Boot is a mass of wood (had to make a whole new boot so it would fit the subs and amps). Running 2 500w dual voice coil fusions.

Image
Image

These pics are a little old (on full licence for a while now) and a few of the things have been fixed (new usb hb in dash), little bit cleaner. Hopefully getting a new front gard and headlight surrounds on Wed, then do a respray sometime in the near future (been saying that ever since roadworthy). All the work has been done by me (which is probably obvious), I am a IT tech by trade but always liked working on cars.

Future mods (hopefully) include new touchscreen, as the one pictured is busted and in parts beside me. New carpet as its a little past it, respray and thats probably about it for now. Been on the lookout for a very cheap VR4 to do a conversion, but it has never come to be, plus this is my only car.....

Forgot also running bi xenon headlights as the stock ones were dismal (live in country and reason for all the busted frontend panels was a roo by the previous owner). They were definately worth it, and are not dodgy ones that change colour or are blue. They are daylight clour and produce a nice crisp white light.

It does look a lot better and can help reading at night (despite what my posted pic looks like, i had the interior lights down then to componsat for the bright boost guage, few resistors and now they are all the same brightness :D)

Got new panel (needs some work) and new headlight surrounds (also need work) last night, so hopefully it will get a respray soon. Will be the same colour though

Well thanks to Travis (S1VART) i will have this awesome cluster, how did you hook up the resistors for brighter dash lights? Or should i just put white T10 LED's instead???

I bought some new leds the other day (still in shipping though). Not to sure how led's would go as the reflectors are right at the side of the bulb and most leds, even wide angle ones struggle at the posisition. I had to put some resistors on the boost gauge to dull it down a little as it was way too bright compared to the cluster. Cleaning the original bulbs might help (mine were caked in a few decades of dust and grime)
