    Default Olive the Nissan..........

    After having sold this (Greens the GL) to a Buyer from Kimberley...………..https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...toe?highlight=

    This BEAUTY came looking for a Good Home, I met the Seller at 07h00 in GP, and it was love at first sight

    Went to fetch her last week, driving back I opened up her throat a little, just checking everything is lekker. 6.2 km/litre.....!!

    I delivered the GL in Bloem this weekend, and sommer decided to follow my wife and kids with Olive. Took it a bit easier, filled up in Bloem yesterday ......… 6.7 km/litre.

    What a nice car. Quiet, solid, torquey engine (LOTS of low down torque!!!), and VERY sure footed handling.

    I really look forward to driving her back to Bethlehem later today. She will have to tow a Landy on a trailer to Sasol some time soon, and yes, I think she's posed too much now after being cleaned up many times.........time for a bit of offroad work coming up, ASAP!!!

    Edit...…….Bloem to Bethlehem today, 120 - 130 km/h, front and rear aircon on the whole time...…….5,6 km/litre. Bit heavier if just over 120.

    Got some "mud trapper" mats today, sommer from Midas, and they fit well over the existing original Nissan carpet set, don't want to damage that.

    Cheap enough and effective enough I think.

    And Tomorrow is.....

    Weekend

    Which means Olive's going to get those lovely legs stretched a bit.

    Then, Monday is wash and cleaning Day.

    Tuesday, she's taking a SWB Landy to Venterburg for me on a trailer, car is going to Paarl via carrier, and I've already made up a million excuses for myself to do this myself

    Then, Wednesday, back to the beauty salon again.

    And the 7th, going to Potch to attend my daughter, at NWU, 21st birthday celebs.

    Happy Days.

    Gatvol met die blerrie platkar gery, soek bietjie iets met 'n bree bonnet vir 'n slag

    This car really ticks all MY boxes, for what I wanted - a clean, classic, FSH, full house, gas guzzling 4th car that I just cannot WAIT to start up et the first opportunity

    K............busy installing the sound into Olive.

    Must say, from what I see I'm really impressed. Looks solidly built, speaker frames etc etc are nice and strong, and that sub weighs a tonne, and has some metal / alu body, so not an el cheapo plastic thingie. Head Unit also looks tidy and straight forward, nice large volume knob etc etc

    Speakers are in, as are the tweeters, all Nakamichi. VERY glad everything fits 100%. They're 6.5' speakers. Everything looks nicely hidden and still OE spec.
    No speaker grilles and badges and all that stront.

    The sub is the headache - sort of, but ja. Decided to mount it securely under the passenger seat.

    Sub looks and feels and weighs rock solid........at the Price I'm so far VERY impressed with the build quality.

    I think I'll have it installed like this - only place where its hidden. I have considered other (maybe better sounding) places, but nou ja.

    I'm not expecting a Krell amplifier with Isobarik speakers and a Nakamichi CD Player sound.

    I was first thinking like this......................

    ............But I turned the sub around, so that all wiring etc etc is under the seat, not protruding rearwards.

    View from the front of the passenger seat....all wiring must go directly under the carpets, shortest way possible. Seat will have to be removed tomorrow, maar laat ons dit eerder reg doen, eerste keer

    Bit better "perspective", the sub is completely hidden now from the front and rear of the passenger seat.
