Indeed happy with the result. Here's the photo report that I made. Enjoy
In the lose weight commercials, you always see a before and after picture. Now personally, I never believe these photos, but the pictures you find below are for real. Trust me. So, this is before:
Here you see Hans in a rather comfortable position (it's true, there's lots of space because of the mini-bridge) working on my car.
The clamp that held the original backbox needed a little persuasion wink
The rubbers that held the backbox where very tight. In order to give us a little room, we dismounted the rear bumper after all. Looks like more work than it actually is, but it cost us only 15 minutes extra and saved us a lot of annoyance.
When the original box was removed, it was time to start the engine. The sound without the box was not very loud. Funny thing: an error on the display. The attentive reader knows why
We had to remove the clamp cause we needed that on the new backbox. Well, although I keep reading about parts falling of cars on this forum, this clamp did not come loose, whatever we tried... A quick trip to the local Praxis learned us that they did not have these clamps (only small ones)...
...but the local Alfa Dealer was very kind, and donated a new one. Thanks very much!! Here a picture with the new clamp already in place.
Fitted, but still without the bumper it looked very strange, but when I started the engine, the sound was great!! Don't ask guys, I have no sound files....
And with the bumper again on the car, it seemed that we fitted it correctly indeed!
And the final result then looks like this. Thanks a lot for your help Hans, and thank your lovely wife once more for her hospitality!
Of course the ride home was without radio!!
