After exchanging the passenger airbag cover, I discovered the perfect spot for my Kenwood active Mini-Sub. Yup, facing downwards, right under the airbag.
There is enough room and clearing space to the airbag system. Will cut a hole into the dashboard, attach the sub inside with 4 screws and cover it with a modded Kenwood mesh.
Going to use my favourite tool for that:A multi cutter, much faster than my Dremel

Most of the cocoa interior parts are still available from PORSCHE, for really cheap money.......not.
Some major parts are already gone forever...sadly.
1. cocoa dashboard
2. cocoa firewall carpet
3. cocoa subwoofer box
Sooo, I am going to keep my sturdy black dashboard and see what I can do with it. Will upholster the lower part with cocoa leather after modding the subwoofer into it.



yep...OEM cocoa airbag cover & upholstered cocoa leather dashboard defroster trim plus cocoa stitching. Looks 100% OEM, but it actually never existed.

UNUSED SPACE put to use...
It is a struggle to grind those inner support strips down for a flash and tight fight. But I am getting there...


...the amp (in a small bespoke case) will be sitting right of the sub, towards the vent.
AND the final mods will be, the original black protective mesh and cococa leather.

I like to split hairs. Bespoke & customised...both are referring to a contractual situation with at least 2 individuals, most likely with a commercial background (seller-customer).
So I agree, neither can I use the term bespoke nor customised, if I craft or modify something on my own.

Not sure, if those were shown here already, but I found new side markers...will shoot some better pics (I was actually just checking, if they work).
REALLY AFFORDABLE, don't want to use the word "cheap", as they seem to be of good quality. A steal! Certified, road legal!
Plain like the OEM ones, not raised like the aftermarket ones I have. Plug'n'play, perfect fit.

Looks Great

What cluster did you use? Year/Model
Where did you get the Crome trim rings.

Thanks Bart

Thanks Bart,

Chrome rings: Offered by a company from Poland. A quality product, no doubt. I need to concentrate not to misspell their name, let's see "DIDO TUNING"
Cluster: Long time ago...year 2004 not sure what model, but I followed the 101 projects guide line, what to get and what to avoid.
