    Lol - I see... Well, whatever it is, it sounds bloody awesome!

    As I said, one of the most important things to get right when putting a quality sound system into a car is dampening resonance, and ensuring good isolation, especially around where the speakers are. The total install, excluding equipment and cables, cost £3k, so that'll give you an idea of how much attention to detail was paid in terms of negating the "tin can" effect

    You can tap or knock pretty much anywhere on the body of the car (especially the boot where the sub is), and all you'll hear is a dull thud! As the old saying goes: if a job's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

    Well, the female hairdresser, who calls at the house, seemed to get a little 'excited' with the vibrations when I played her some Ice Cube, while she was sat on the back seat, near the sub... "Ooh, I can feel it going right through me bum" (her words).

    Of course, I said nothing...

    No, you just turned up the wick then left her to enjoy a bit of 'me time'

    How on earth did you get onto the subject of your car stereo with your hairdresser? Is this the modern version of coming up to see your etchings? Had you run out of things to talk about? Were you not going anywhere nice for your holidays? Were you not requiring 'something for the weekend'?
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    Hahaha... No, there was no damp patch on the seat afterwards [deduced after careful examination]

    I've known her for more than 20 years, as has Del! She's a good laugh and loves music and nice cars, plus she's a bit of a bass head. Thus, after having had the new system installed in the car, and armed with said info, I asked if she'd like to hear it - and of course she did!

    She also likes fast acceleration (given her a lift in the car sometimes), and when I 'blip' the Brabster [kick down on the accelerator pedal], and she gets throw back in the seat by the 'shove' of all that torque, she giggles like a hyena!!

    Yes, simple minds are amused by simple things.

    Clearly the 'Tena' pants you gave her to try out are working a treat then. A music loving bass-head hairdresser? She sounds like a keeper, and judging by that picture you posted of yourself in that Italian prison, she clearly has a sense of humour Only kidding mate, more hair than I've got
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    Thumbs down Say 'NO' to the 'Friar Tuck' look!



    When your hair's receding, it's important to keep it super-short, especially at the sides and back, as there's nothing worse than the 'Friar Tuck' look!! Or the unruly mop that Chris has from "Eggheads':





    That's just *so wrong*, on all levels.... If he lopped all that 'grey tuft' off, he'd look at least ten years younger!! And that dude on the right, well... One word: FANNY...!!

    Anyway, Elaine calls every two weeks to cut my hair, as what's left grows very quickly. She lives locally, so it's no bother to her, and she's also friends with Del.

    In any case, I only associate with folk who have something going for them and don't bore me, so even my hairdresser has to be 'special'...

    Thumbs down 'Home trims'

    Aye, but I like the job done properly!

    And she also cuts Del's hair, which is just a tad longer than mine, lol (down to her waist)...

    But yes, with balding folks like Chris, it's as if they're determined to hold onto every last hair on their head, and so resolutely refuse to cut it, no matter how unruly it gets and how silly they look! And there are TONS of these daftees wandering around. You wonder if they own a mirror

    Probably in denial...
