      TR/TS magnas are very underrated. They make a great cruiser - very smooth suspension. The Diamante front bumper looks so much better then the Magna one. Got the bumper painted yet?

        My car got stiff suspension, so it not smooth any more Paint is stuff on the car and being metallic paint I rather get the car sprayed all at once. So at this stage the bumper is still primer colour. But it is on the list to do.

          Alright after a long break and getting a nice push along for another member off AMC, I got the mirror tilt module working right in my car at long last. Alright here is the wiring diagram and a video showing it all working

          Wiring Diagram:



          Video of it in action:



          It an awesome bit of kit, and fairly easy to install Hardest part I found was that my brain keep getting confused by the different wires. Hence so many stuff ups, but it fairly easy to swap wires if need be

              Very easy mod.. Never seen these before though.. I just use my blind spot mirrors.. Can't say ive ever been a big fan of the magna's.. I drove a new model.. And the sport auto was ok in that.. And fun to give a little.. I say drop it, with the biggest rims you can fit in there.. With a good sound system..

                Um No!!!! I'm not going to slam it to the ground, put big ugly ass rims on and over weigh the car with a big fat useless stereo system :P

                As I like the car how it handles now, I have done my mods to improve the driving of the car day to day. As rims and the height of the car is balance to improve handling.

                Personal I cringe every time I see big chromies on a car, or it been slammed to the ground, and has a large doff doff system in the boot.

                But I suppose I'm a little different to most people

                  A magna is a cruising car.... And lowering it and having less tire wall will increase handling.. yer the stereo is gonna add a bit of weight.. But magna are very heavy to start with and thought you couldn't be to concerned of the weight.. And to add i hate crome rim's.. Alloys all the way!!

                      Anyway on with with a mod/ thing that needed doing. I at long last painted my diamante cup holder arm rest from a colour that nobody is sure of to black I pull it apart down to the very last bolt and nut, and was left with a whole pile of parts. Me being a Sparky by trade I'm use to pulling things apart and putting them back together. Anyway here photos into pieces to being back together and a nice shade of black






                      Im going to spray a fews pieces of my dash silver and my parts of my diamante cupholder will be sprayed silver.

                              Also added the lip back on the diamante bar and added coloured mirrors.

                              Troubles has now getting a mix and match type of audio install. A member of AMC has being supply me with gear to improve and enhance my current audio install which has been awesome

                              My install so far:

                              Pioneer head deck
                              Front speaker: 6" Herzt speaker
                              Tweeters: silk dome clarion tweeters
                              Crossover for the front are alphine
                              Rear speakers: 6x9 by vdo

                              My front tweeters were to low and not pointed in the rear direction, so I jump on eBay and bought myself some cheap tweeter pods. With a bit of work I think they came up alright. At the moment I'm testing the clarion speaker and my mock tweeter pods. So the pod and the tweeter is held together with electrical tape. Which will be made more permanently when I comfortable that all is working how it should. The sound coming from the front speaker is even and not so bright, sounds good now only to the left hand side.







                              Still got a few things to do tomorrow in regards to the electrical system, so I might update this thread tomorrow with some more photos.
