Because I'm mounting the Soundstream amplifiers upside down, the inside should look very nice as well.
All the components must be perfectly straight.
The screws where the final stages are fixed with, I personally think, look like ****!


To just replace these screws would be simple, but the original screws are UNC (Unified Coarse) thread, and in Europe it's metric thread.
So I have to retap everything for M4 screws.





After that I sinked in the original thick roundells, sanded and polished them.
I worked almost one full day to get to this result.






But I'm really happy with the result

On the inside, the amps will remain like this for the time being. On the outside a lot of things will happen, I'm afraid.
I think the aluminium casing which holds the circuit board, will get a treatment with the mill/cutter in the near future.



When everything is ready, I will send these amplifiers to England to amp docter http://www.ampdoctor.co.uk/
I got some emails done with Gordon Tailor. He's going to check them completely.

He is going to change some things.

A few months ago I accidentally ended up on you homepage. Respect dude , for what you 've done in the M3.
I'm on Facebook, but I post nothing on there of what I am doing with the BMW .
If you know where there are some great things on Fb or something, you can always let me know through PM orso.
Daily, I come across beautiful things that can be applied in the Bimmer . Glad you learned something of what I’m doing

Thanks. I have resently started to put some time on the car. Hopefully som updates now.
So, are you going to change the amprack? Or build a new one? Or do the new amps take more space than you have?

I have followed the BMW on diyma for a long time. It's just pure art! The carbon fiber and aluminium work is fantastic!

I have two Reference 500 amps. They look almost the same as yours on the inside. The only thing I can add, is that make sure the two inductors in the back of the power supply is secure. On one of my amps they where not, and started to make some springy sounds when the amp was moved or touched. I just used some hot glue, but silicone is probably better...

Also, when the board is out, check that the fasterners that hold the goldplated connectors it tight. The fuse holders where slightly loose on mine. It's difficult to get to these without removing the boards!

Keep up the good work!

Really cool to have you on this forum!

I have been looking trough your builds since i started to be interested of car sound, you have always been one of the gods in car audio for me! I would be real happy if i someday would make half the quality of your work.

Hoping to see more of your builds soon!

Kalle

It has been quiet for a while on this forum topic,
but believe me, that was totally beyond my control.

Those who know me in person, I guess they know why.
And all others ... maybe better take a look at this video :

Sorry to hear about your shoulder condition, can only hope that your situation improves. Health comes before everything else.

As you can see in the movie, I’m going through life in a wheelchair.
Of course my bimmer is adapted, so the gas and the brake is operated at the steering wheel.
You can let a specialized company do this, but I chose to do it myself.
I let a company do it to my first car, and this looked hideous, AND it cost me a lot of money too…

Meanwhile, this is my 4th car I adjusted myself.
You can do it yourself, as long as it’s properly done, and all secure. Once your build is done, you need to get an approval, by a technical inspection.
Of course there are rules you must respect.
One of those things is, that you can not weld onto the brake pedal

This is a picture of the entire system that is mounted to the steering gear.
On the left you see the bracket where the pivot point of the brake is mounted.
This bracket must be made very strong, cause a lot of power comes on it, especially when you have to do an emergency brake.







The bracket itself is mounted with 2 clamps on the handlebar and two screws on the side (where the dashboard is secured)





This piece is screwed to the brake pedal.





This adjustable rod is connected between the brake pedal and brake on the steering wheel.



Here you can see how everything is mounted in the bimmer.
The iron bar with the rubber handle that you see, is my brakepedal.
Before the handle you see a mountainbike-brake. This is the thing I use to accelerate.




So, the brake lever is connected with a steel rod, screwed onto the brake pedal. This works perfectly, and most of the time, I only need a few fingers to brake.
What acceleration is concerned, I’ve made this with an INOX shiftingcable of a bicycle. The runs into a “gain”, and comes our behind of the gas pedal.
By pulling the mountain bike lever, I also pull the gas pedal. It works perfectly, and runs smooth.
The advantage of how I made it, is that my wife can operate the entire vehicle in the normal way, feetwise.
