Tell me that wouldn't be the most badass chicken/meats rotisserie cooker, a wagon converted to cook foods.... all that glass to show off the slowly rotating meats.... mmmmm

Merry crimbo D fam. (and happy 1000th post).

Hoping to get this project wrapped up over the break (or at least, driveable). TBH, not that much left that needs doing so i need to pull my finger out.

Replaced the RTA bushes with Hardrace:



New wheel cylinders and shoes:



New drums:



Anything to do with the rear trailing arms is usually a PITA and this was no exception, drums suck.

So i recapped the whole head unit that i picked up and the problem with the audio quality is still the same. SOB. Anyway, i had an old JVC head unit which i bought back in '05 which i still don't mind the look of. I'll install that for now and maybe come back to the other head unit if i have the time or the inkling.

Audio harnesses are one of my biggest pet peeves, they're always ghetto AF. Originally i had a shop fit this head unit into my first ED, and i still had the 'harness' they made. I wish i took a pic actually, it was such a mess. Every wire had two sets of bullet connectors on it, and when i tried to pull the connectors apart the wires fell out of the back of the connectors lol. Anyway i needed to make a new one because i'm fitting an amp too, the wagons have a perfect little spot behind the glovebox so i made a bracket and fitted it up in there:





I still cracked the old headunit open and soldered the bluetooth unit onto the board so that now when i change the source to AUX, it streams via bluetooth. My new harness:

Finished off the audio install, the bluetooth connectivity is so awesome. Also got my interior reinstalled, and drove it out for the first time in nearly a year :love:



Was good to get it washed up



And then tucked back away again lol



Feels so good to have it mobile.

Dude, I don't understand... that red bucket must be filled with Armor All....

Its not that the glass and panels are super clean and reflective, its that the rest of the planet can't physically touch it due to a protective barrier of some kind....

WHAT IS THIS WITCHCRAFT?!
