    Picked up my second VR6. Left the used one, on the right the 'new' crate motor.


    Also got some stuff to relocate the battery to the boot and the amps.
    I now have everything but the head unit (which I hope was on the Ever Given).


    Looking forward to installing it all!

      Did some work on the audio install.

      Earth connection. Sanded down the paint on the contact surface and protected it
      with Kontakt Protection spray.




      Fitted the battery tray and added some foam to prevent sliding as I don't have
      the bar to secure the battery. Now the strap is good enough.




      Placed the fuse holder.




      Routed the 50mm2 cable under the carpet.


      Connection point for the amplifiers and sub (later). 50mm2 in and out to the
      engine compartment, 35mm2 to the amps.


      Fuse holder for the amps an sub. 16mm2 cable to the amps.


      Amps under the rear deck. The blue remote wire needs to connected to both amps.




      Placed the fuse holder in the engine compartment. The red wires will get a
      black sleeve in the future. Still need to connect the new cable to the
      original cables.


      Nice.


      The head unit I ordered in March still isn't available, so a bought a second hand
      Pioneer DEH-X8700BT. It has bluetooth hands free and the colours of the
      buttons and display can be tuned to the car.

          Great work on the battery relocation and power cables, loving the rare battery cover, Is the battery tray still an available part?
