    I was bored so I done some improvments! Dunno if this should go in electronics or not - basically I Weatherproofed and sound proofed my door.


    First take your door card off...

    Look at the ugly old plastic weatherproof sheet (pre face lift w202's have 'crap' plastic)


    [​IMG]

    Clean the panel as you can see its dirty ewww :

    then get some soundproofing:

    [​IMG]

    make it fit the door:

    cut out the speaker hole and also pierce it for the speaker holes and door plugs:

    [​IMG]

    get some spray adhesive:


    [​IMG]

    and some new updated sheeting and try it on for size

    [​IMG]

    Stick it on over the soundproofing and make cutouts for electrical wires etc..

    [​IMG]

    put door back on and use some clips if they broke (only 5p each)

    Enjoy More quality sound, and a nice weatherproofed doorcard for years to come! (repeat as neccassary for other doors)
