Rear speakers came in. I was able to modify the factory speaker housings instead of using the replacements I bought. This let me retain the factory wiring. Much better sound quality, front speakers are lost in the post.

Front speakers and tweeter housings came in, very poor fit and finish, took a lot of work to clean up. Ready for paint now though.

Took quite a bit of paintwork to match the sail panels perfectly but they turned out great. The sound quality is a huge improvement! Ordered seat covers from Escape Gear in South Africa and some MOLLE seatback panels from a place here.

Maybe Critter has a problem as it's all visible for me. I don't have any fancy apps or software, just stock Android tablet.
Critter I see all your pics.

Not really sure what to do guys, I tried from several computers and they display for me, I don't have the option to host them on newhilux.net, I'm hosting them from my Google album archive. I'll mess around with the settings and see if that changes anything? Are you guys seeing broken links for the whole thread or just recently?

Maybe I can see them because I'm using Google Chrome? Could it be your browser Critter?

Glad to hear that and thanks!

Also thanks Gipsy for the help troubleshooting.

Pulled all the rear panels and seat out for cleaning and sound deadening this evening. Pics to come tomorrow. Hoping I don't run into any surprises when I get the interior gutted...

Worked until I ran out of Kilmat, more on the way. Looking like 5 18sqft boxes will do the floor/ back panel and doors.

I always wanted to do that.
I might be wrong.

I'll let you know how it turns out, doors were a night and day difference. More mat won't be here until Sunday though. :(

While waiting on more mat, I decided to tackle the dirty headliner (PO had a daughter that apparently reveled in rubbing her greasy little hands all over the ceiling) looks great now after some upholstery cleaner and a lot of clean cloths, no pics of headliner. Also pulled the rear seatbelts to launder and tighten up the retractors a couple of turns.

MOLLE seatback panels came in this evening and I got the seatbelt retractors all cleaned up and rewound, they look and retract nearly as good as new, I'll do the fronts next week.

That made all of the difference with my old lux.

Got 5 hours in this morning on the Kilmat installation, it's coming along very nicely!
