Small update. Speakers blew out, finally after 17 years they had enough, and not wanting a SPL van I knew what I wanted and with the mid tyres sounding loud as it is I wanted replacement ASAP.

However I wanted them to look factory and hide behind oem panels etc, I knew it would be a pain in the NAUGHTY WORD-NAUGHTY WORD-NAUGHTY WORD-NAUGHTY WORD- as mounting depth is a major issue in the freelanders.

The van versions in Mk1 for some reason have rear speakers behind the van panels fitted but not plumbed in, when I was doing the thermal kit I pulled the whole lot out but left in new wiring, so I will fit a set of 6x9s at some stage for some more vase and rear depth.

So for £22 I settled on these. Came as a complete kit and I'm VERY happy with the quality of speaker. I'm a kenwood or pioneer man usually, but these little jvc's are wonderfully clear.



Then you have the problem of making them fit. I'm FAR to tight to spend money on adapters so I used the old factory speakers and cut them up with a dremel to turn them into adaptors.







For other owners you can see even with my adapter fitted they arnt as deep as factory speakers giving loads of room.





Job done. All wired in correctly, took about 45 mins a side as I only had one dremel blade left and needed to preserve it lol.

Classic fm never sounded so good in my van.

Goodbye old English number plate and registration, hello nice new Northern Ireland 2019 reg.

Had held off until 2019 knowing the mgz plates where coming out obviously with my love of the mg z cars, I have a feeling another one will find it's way onto my zt-t and rover 75 soon.

With the pressed plates makes it feel much more old school land rover.

Great banter doing injectors today, between leak of pipes not sealing right and the level of gunk from the build up of leaking.

Had been on the too do list for far to long. Like a new car now.
