  1. hihave a ba ghia and was wondering the best way to install a aftermarket amp and sub ready for a aftermarket android dash icc/aftermarket head unit replacement.where the factory amp is can you unplug the connector and is there a sub output that goes from icc to amp you can use to connect to aftermarket amp and ifso do you need a line to rca converter and ifso which one.at the factory amp connector there would be input wires from icc, could you use them with a rca converter for aftermarket amp.or can you just get the line converter that goes on the rear speakers and run rca cable to amp from that.obviously you'll have to remove factory amp to install aftermarket amp and if you bypass the icc then youll just be able to run twin rca cable.the android units have one rca for factory amp and sub and rca front and rca rear out but no rca aftermarket amp, could you use the rear or front out to go to aftermarket amp.what would yous do out of getting the complete replacement aftermarket icc and leaving the factory one and hope the icc doesnt go, and getting the double din touch screen that has a single din mounting like the sony https://www.universalfuze.com.au/son...-and-dab-radio headunit.if you go something like https://www.universalfuze.com.au/son...-and-dab-radio what steering wheel control module would you need. does it have gps built in and how would you go about a spot to put things as that would take up whole area and you loose the tissue box.also if you go the complete aftermarket deck will cutting the speaker cables blow up the icc and how would you stop that chance of it happening.if you put bullet terminals on dont spose itd take much to put back to factory wires so aftermarket icc works.with these aftermarket icc whats the sound output quality like and are you better going that way and just have a single din cd player and connect that through aux so you can play occasional cds.thanks for any help/answers/for reading this
  2. what about information for the questions asked for the cameras
  3. hijust a question. how do you remove rearvision mirror from a ba/bf to attach the camera mirror monitor replacement that part of it changes to a screen when power is put to it.are the ebay dual screen replacenent ones any good in quality? what about the parkmate ones or the ford ones for a ranger or something, will they fit where the ba/bf one was.can you get dual screen mirror monitors that fit a ba so you can have front camera on one half when parking and when you got trailer or van on the other side comes on?with the ones that clip onto the existing mirror is the quality good? are the ebay ones good? and do all the clip on mirror monitors have the auto dim?thanks for any information

    What could have got these cars a defect

    Seen then on upullit stock list and noticed the stickers and wondered the likely reason

    What could have got these cars a defect

    Would a car get a defect if the paint looked rough or there were different colour panels but ran and drove well and panels were otherwise good, wouldn’t have thought so

    What could have got these cars a defect

    What about ones that look rough but drives and runs well and is complete with all otherwise good panels wondering if also some might have been on lpg and tank might have been out of date as that’s also defectable

    What could have got these cars a defect

    what else, dodgy paint or different colour panels shouldnt be a problem if all panels are in doog condition what about if they look rough but run and drive well. also would registered owners have been likely to have been known to police and they decided to find something or younger police taking over and want the latest and best.
  8. hi everyone noticed a few defected cars on the upullit stock list and wondered what would have likely got these defected when they didnt look like they had much wrong with them and what would likely reason be why people didnt fix them this one has 2 defect stickers and is parted out but it probably got parted out at upullit faded or bubbling pant or different colour panels should be a problem if theyre all in good condition and no sharp bits. Would some have been on lpg and tanks were out of date. what about if they look rough but run and drive well. also would registered owners have been likely to have been known to police and they decided to find something or younger police taking over and want the latest and best.
  9. Notice a lot of middle age families and younger people change cars the moment they start to annoy them or no longer suit their lifestyle and not do what their parents and grandparents did and keep patching them up and hang on until the engine goes or for a couple more years
  10. hi everyone was wondering if theres anywhere you can go or anything you can do to learn how to make insurance claims and buy cars just to keep in mind as want to learn those things to add to the car skills and its probably something everyone should learn. years and years back at school we practiced making doctors appointments as part of living skills and it would have been nice to add those 2 things in, thats one reason for wondering if there was somewhere you can go that wont cost much if anything. another reason is havent been able to go to the cousins 3 hours for last couple years and its only since buying the ba ghia that you could probably think about it again and now they got commitments. what would likely be reason why all want kids suddenly would it just be the age they are. for normal people that dont have alot of money or come from a thrify family or are thrifty themselfs and think its cheaper to keep fixing daily car you got or another cheap one which it is 90-95% of time even changing a engine transmission or suspension or bit of everything when you divide the cost by 12 whats better out of trading up and paying more than continually fixing what you got or another cheap one and pay less but have the inconvenience and hassle of not knowing if the next trip the next big thing goes or cant make plans due to needing one thing after another. even though its always financially cheaper to keep fixing the daily you got or another cheap one and some people do because they cant afford or dont want a loan or like a particular type, what would be reason why most middle age families or younger people dont put up with it and hang on till the engine goes or cars completely worn out like in their parents or grandparents day. would it be because people these days have places to go things to do and want to get there and dont want to be bothered fixing one thing after another even though most cars occasionally have a couple things go wrong maybe a few they do get to a point that its one thing after another and it might best to sell it or park it if you want to keep it past a point and get something else. how would you ask someone or people in their family to hang on till their cars completely die and not change them over at the warning signs. thanks

    build trailer

    is override brakes ok for a trailer or is it better with electric and have the override coupling incase you need to tow it with a car that doesnt have the controller most hire trailers have override brakes if you have electric brakes on the trailer with a override coupling can you fit a switch to the brake wire to turn it off when towing with a car that doesnt have the controller, (one example is the aunts santa fe would be able to tow it but at moment doesnt have the brake controller connected but the ba ghia will be having one put in.)

    build trailer

    hi am building a whole new trailer chassis and if a girl as a friend is found do you guys recon itd be better to over engineer the springs and stuff a bit so its still compliant if she threw her gear in as depending on what it is it could weigh the trailer down a bit and could be a tonne or over all up inc your own gear and trailer weight if you camped, as once you threw your gear, her gear and flled up a few water tanks it wont take much to weigh a tonne maybe over. if you got 6ft lengths and wish to make it 7 or 8 ft long can you just weld more length and weld some flat bar over the join in a couple spots to strengthen it or weld one of the rhs widths at the join. with the trailer would override brakes be good enough as plan to put brakes on it and may have to at times tow it with a car that doesnt have a electric brake controller.same goes for van when that happens. would it be better to over engineer the springs and stuff. even though vans with electric brakes that are under 2 tonne dont have to have a brakeaway system can you fit it if you want to and if you do fit it what has to happen, can it just work on atleast one axle for under 2t same as normal brakes wether override or electric or does it have to work same as over 2t if its fitted even though the van would be under 2t.

    Story

    talking to people and taking one day at a time, sometimes its a little hard as wasnt ready to move the ef on and get a better daily thats able to do more till now and if there was enough room to store cars the main daily would have got changed sooner because then you would not have had to get rid of your old ones, but we do get through and thats main thing. one example is while you can get most things done in a day at the adelaide camping shows sometimes 2-3 days would be nice then youd have longer ans thats one reason for wondering about asking someone you know whos free to be able to stay in adelaide for a few days and some of us are single by choice and might only just be wanting friends or whatever and just doing what they can to make it happen and just patiently waiting

    Story

    HiWhat’s best way to ask around and see which friend is free to spend a few days somewhere with you when nearly all either have kids now or have other things on.Would be nice to spend atleast a few days in adelaide and working out how to ask around for a friend and see who’s free. is there any hope in the copper coast.Haven’t really been able to think of it till june last year when getting the ba ghia as the ef while it was a great car needed alot of work and didnt have room to store cars otherwise the daily would have been changed 12 months sooner and the others would have been parked and only used on weekends or as a backup or to run around locally also thinking not long being able to do some other stuff is probably why people today dont throw parts after parts at their main daily and hang on and wait till engine blows up before getting rid of them and getting something they dont have to fix every other week
