got the glove box open today, with the aid of a knife. In it there was an old pink scarf, two mp3 players, several old tax disks, a set of head phones, some spare bits of trim, some spare electrical bits, a pair of sunglasses, a standard triumph badge, and some used kitchen roll ;D

good find in the glove box, amazing what u find in the old herald glove boxs, wen i opened mine for what was probably the first time since before i was born i found about 15 quid in old 50p pences a whole sheet of old kings n queens postal stamps and a full set of number plates which the previous owner had 'lost' and a crap loada old tissues and screws. tip #1 always look in the glove box ;D
wired the stereo in today only to find one of the speakers was blown. So went back to the shop to get it replace. Didn't have any more in stock, so I had to pay the difference to get some slightly better speakers.
Haven't fitted it permanently as you can see, but I intend on putting the speakers under the dash board, mainly because the doors are full of rot and water and I don't want my speakers to get ruined. However as you can also see the original thing that went under the dash is pretty much disintegrated, so I was wondering if you can buy replacements or what else I could use?
If you take the kick panels off (the piece of trim next to your feet) you'll find there is a big "hollow" behind them. So you can probably fit the speakers there if you like. You could even make up a pair of new trim panels out of thin ply/hardboard/something and keep the originals uncut.
So its been in the garage recently. It's been fixed thus far and now starts.
Started work on the oil leak, cleaned down the engine, and found that it was leaking from the rocker cover joint. So put a new head gasket on it, still leaking. The twonk who owned it before me over tightened the rocker cover so its all twisted and distorted, anyway I'm currently in the process of getting it straightened out.
