Above To Do List just for my own "Record".

Car is almost in Bethlehem, NO issues from Worcester to here. I got a student friend of my son to bring it up for me, he slept over in Bloem last night.

Tunes me this morning " Jis Oom die ding is dorser as 'n Eerstejaar op Potch!!" :lol: :lol:

VERY excited to have Greens back here.

Nuwe radio vandag gekry, BAIE goeie pryse en diens by Autostyle - minder as 2 dae en die pakkie in op my Tafel!! :blonde:

Removed all unnecessary wires, old Nokia hansfree thing, CD shuttle etc etc...………Got a Sony unit with built in 55w x 4 (yes I know...) amp, BT and a built in handsfree microphone in the radio I don't want piepietjies hanging from the roof.

With JBL "Club" speakers. Hope they will fit, the openings are 6', but the speakers 6,5'

Price was reasonable I think, radio was +- R 1800, speakers were a bit rough at R 795 a pair, but ja - I like the JBL's. they're a sort of "robust" speaker

The 6.5" speakers will fit. I have Kicker 6.5" splits front and back. If I recall the screw holes were a slight issue, but it was not a problem

Thanks again for the advise. Fitted that Sony and the 6.5' JBL speakers. Nice and tidy,no cutting done. Sounds nice.

And yes the 6.5' speaker fits in the GL's speaker gaps, thanks ricster!!
