    Alright people!

    To be honest, I've been really lazy with the cappa recently. I had a little 'moment' when my essentially brand new wing mirrors started to show signs of rust, stopped sulking now and going to give them a damn good clean up with chrome polish and use some ACF50 on them for the winter - I use it on my bikes for the winter and it keeps all the nasty weather/salt etc at bay.

    Anyway, moving on. As we know the parcel shelves tend to be pants, and I've been thinking of ways of supporting the old one. Then when I went to my head office the other day, the lads in the carpentry firm below our office who usually make kitchens and stuff, said they'd make up a parcel shelf for me for naff all! They'd make sure it looks ace and all routed (?) etc and fit my speakers in. Clearly it's going to be a lot tidier than what I'd make up with a grinder and big hammer (really not great on MDF).

    So picked up some speakers (6 x 9's) off ebay, that I looked for reviews for online and they had a cracking write up (£20, should be loads more... Bargain!) Hopefully we'll get it all sorted this week, so I'll post up pics when I get is all on!

    ..be careful tho, don't put too many speakers in it (like me) or your shelf won't stay on the support strings :rolleyes:

    Does anyone have a template for the parcel shelf so those of us without even a donor can make one up?

    Cheers
    Vin

    MK2 1976 2.0L GL (rotten), Mk3 1983 2.0L "S" (basically just the shell), MK3 1.6L Cabaret (nearest to being back on the road) - all in bits! Focus 2.0 Ghia Zetec for the daily drive!
    Kitchen fitters?? You just know you're going to get a 30mm thick beech block effect or maybe nice marble effect shelf. will look superb with a stainless kettle and toaster on it! :lol:
