PostSubject: My impreza mod thread.   My impreza mod thread. EmptySat 26 Jun - 22:10

I thought i would put the posts i had on a car audio forum showing my boot build, but i will post any mods i do to my car not just the ice.

i have just copied it so the time lines will make no sense as the first post is from months ago.


finally got round to starting my impreza install. today consisted of running power wires and rca cables throught the car.

I started taking some pictures as i went but during the process i manged to hurt my back quite badly and as the car was stripped down at work i had to rebuild the car in absolute agony so the picture taking went to the wayside a bit.

Anyway here is what i did take.

the start of the strip. front seats out

rear seats out

carpets gone

inteercooler removed to route power wire
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

fuse holder mounted on battery clamp
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

all wire routed carpets back in
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I was hoping to get the amp and sub in today but with my back going i was lucky to get the interior back in. Ill see how i feel later today and hopefully get it finished off



I got a bit more done on the boot yesterday.

the boot floor pieces together

hindged flap for access to spare wheel

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Due to the boot floor been so uneven i have decided to put a wooden frame under it which i will shape to the floor

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It's made up of 4 parts the 2 sides a centre peice and the flap, i put a slot in the side of the centre peice and the side peices and inserted some plastic guides in the side peices

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

this so the sides can be put in place then the centre slides in between them locking every thing together.

Hopefully get a start on the frame tomorrow



Finally got the frame in and the new floor fitted and secured.

the bare boot.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

the frame in place

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

the frame mounted on the bottom of the floor

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

my plan from the start was not screw or permanently fasten any of this build to the car it's self. the idea been the whole thing can be removed without any trace of it being there.

so i taped the outline of the frame onto the floor then applied a bead of sealer to the bottom of the frame to help it sit nice and flush on the very uneven floor. the sealer sits on the tape and not the boot floor.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

and finally the whole lot fitted

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

there is plenty of access to the spare wheel

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


next step mocking up the sub box and amp rack



well spent a lot of time over the last week working on the sub box not that it looks like a lot of work has gone into it but it has.

here is the area taped off and foil being applied
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

first few layers of fiber glass and mdf base and end panel
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

the mould removed. it was tight to get out
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

A few more layers of fiber glass a top and the other end panel. cut out in the top panel for the boot hindge
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

the cut out for the boot hindge has now been boxed in. i found two tiny leaks when i was checking the box volume so it needs a little bit of sealing but it's just about done.



a few pictures of the sub box. hole will be cut when i get the sub

the start of a homemade slide/linear actuator to operate the boot floor

It's been a while since i posted any updates. Not that much to post really but here are a few pictures.

Ive been playing about with the amp rack. sorry about the poor quality of the pictures.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

the bits of mdf on the front and sides are not part of it just what i was using to keep the top in the right place while marking the hole to be cut out.


here it is wit the the top on on the L.E.D's fitted

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'm disappointed with the way the light is shinning on the amps, its a bit random and not very uniform. I'm hoping when the perspex is fitted it will carry the light and look better.


well my sub should arrive on monday its been ordered for weeks.fingers crossed.

i got the perspex fitted in the cover for the amps, still not happy with the way the light is shinnig on the amps but i can play around with this later when its all fitted in the car.

im going to make my self a circle cutting jig for my router today but back at work tommorrow so not sure when i will get the sub fitted.

Once the sub is in i will be refitting everything so i will get some pictures then. ive ordered some carpet not enough to do the whole boot just a sample to see if i like it



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

got the hole cut in the sub box using my home made circle jig

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
i've recessed it 12mm in to the front so it still sits proud when the carpet is on it will stick out only a couple of mm

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]





started to do so trimming today.

got the box covered and the amp cover

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

i found this to be harder than i thought it would, but it looks ok. a few dodgy edges on the amp cover but for a first attempt i think its ok.



well finally got the amps and sub in the car. Amp is powered up and sub is pumping away.

this is how it looks, not finished yet obviously but its getting there

The whole boot will be carpeted when its all finished.

The restriction on the picture size on this site has spoiled the photos some what as it has cut the right side off.

Thats going to look nice when its finished. I put my sub and amps in a few years back now and they are all still velcro'd to the boot carpet . Must get round to something a bit more permanent me thinks.

wow you must have been trawling the archives to come across this thread.

I'm afraid i just don't have the time to do another one i still haven't finished mine and i started that in january last year.

It's not that hard to do its just abit time consuming.

However the resirection of this thread has inspired me to try and get it finsinhed by the end of the year.
