Okay chaps, just got the panels back from the spray shop. Nice orange or not? The colour is a lot deeper than the image but the flash is flaring it out.
It’s dull and grey here but in the sunshine I should imagine it will look much brighter.
Also, I see a pair of speaker grills lurking in the roof behind my head and have ordered a 100W Bluetooth amp to power a pair of speakers I’ll get fitted. Anyone know what fits the boxes?
Here’s a link to the amp I bought which I’ll tuck away somewhere and it will auto connect and power up when I turn on the ignition.(See here) Blue tooth streaming from my phone hopefully should sound okay. Now I wonder where I can mount two x 1kW subwoofers? NOOOO
Note the clear indicator lenses too. What a pain they were! They don’t tell you that the connectors are TOTALLY incorrect for the wiring loom on the Twizy and we had to cut the old ones off (which I didn’t want to do), and mount spade terminals. We then sealed up the back of the new holders to stop water ingress and even had to lengthen the near side cable because it wasn’t long enough. Not recommended, but they do look great. Also had to fork out on 4 new off-set orange colour bulbs to fit too. All-in-all not a cheap mod.
Also fitted two LED high and low beam LEDS headlamps together with LED side lights. To say it’s an improvement is an understatement. The difference is amazing an indeed draws less current from the battery. Nice white light too. Let’s see how reliable they are so don’t all rush out and upgrade.
The roof will be covered in carbon fibre vinyl wrap (dark grey) and the side stickers on the doors will be removed to ready for the corporate stuff from the store.
Also fitted a pair of beefier door risers from our friend Alex in Greece so they open faster now.
Just the Amp, speakers & Sunvisor to fit and we are there bar the corporate stickering.
All the mods so far have been expertly fitted by Martin our chap who has been installing auto-electrical stuff in to cars for longer than I’ve been wearing long trousers. He will do any of the mods to your Twizy’s and is very reasonable in cost. His number is 07846 123800
