Re: Engine cover/lid insulation and sound deadening

Thanks All, really useful.  I might give Mick a call and see if he has any originals if not I'll see what I can find lying around in the tip that is my garage!  Bamboo Billy, seriously considering a Blazecut too - which length is that one you've installed? 2m or 3m?.  Read too many horror stories a...

Re: Engine cover/lid insulation and sound deadening

I replaced mine with NoiseKiller. The retainers are a bit like a metal coat-hanger which just tuck in. Attached a Blazecut extinguisher with some cable ties at the same time

Re: Stereo swap, ISO wiring harness adaptor

Great thank you Multisi and Rob!
