Can't recall, are they 6cm or 13cm?

For the ones up behind the driver's / passenger's head.

Malcolm, I'm afraid they're neither! [Laughing]
The fronts are 4 inchers and rears - ones you're after - are 3.5 inches.

Thanks, thought they were smaller.

Going to run new wires while the interior is out

Good move. I'd like to do the same...
Are you just doing it for speakers or running any other new wires?

The wiring loom for the stereo is completely butchered, so I intend to improve it and solder in an ISO socket properly this time and remove the chokky blocks currently in use.

I will also run new speaker wires for the rear (not for the stereo) and for speakers in the front, in the doors etc. I also have a sub for behind the seat, so will look at running some wiring for that too.

The intention is to install my CB radio into the car into one of the din sockets, which will then have external speakers, being the ones behind the seats referred to earlier, to remove the need for anything mounted in the open.

I am also going to look into a few extra bits like some USB charging sockets etc - which I am considering installing in the ashtray of the car, since it is only ever used to hold stray screws etc in any event; so it makes sense.

Ultimately the intention is to make the cabin a bit more user friendly and habitable, I have a near immaculate interior to go in, so do not want to mess with it too much.

I am also replacing all the screws in the dash, I have purchased replacement black screws with the intention of making it look newer and fresher. Am also considering bulb change on the dash, clock etc.

Have you got a record of what screws were for where and where they came from? May help those others looking to do similar. [Wink]

I am seriously toying with the idea of making a powered USB hub thing to replace the ashtray by 3D printing a new frontage. Would be a nice solution to broken ashtrays!

I will see if I can find a label, I got them through a previous employer a few years ago unrelated to the MR2, but they do look quite swish. will let you know.

I have MK1b, so have the ashtray on the side of the centre column, so all protected. If I had a 3D printer I would print an insert for it, but as yet I have not purchased one, though it is on the list of stuff to purchase, so I can print some bull bar ends, centre caps, my own models etc.
