Nice touch, looks really good.

Thanks! Been a soggy few days, so haven't made much progress, the paintwork is almost up to scratch (excuse the pun) I fitted some led bulbs in the interior/footwell lights, managed to squeeze in 6x led 38mm bulbs by manipulating the terminals a little bit, also repaired a crack in the dash cowel and ordered a tan stitched leather wrap to cover it.

I like the idea of interior lights to replace the sunvisors, would make a huge difference at night as the footwell lights are only good for doing up your shoe laces

Probably will order a pair of these, if I'm having a nice interior, I'd like to be able to see it!

I also fitted some RDX mini led indicator lamps (E marked) as apparently using led bulbs in non led units is now an MOT fail, they are very bright, already I had load resistors fitted, so was only a 10min job, only 2 screws and no messing about with the chrome ring /rubber seal on the old lucas units, will post a pic later...

Todays jobs are to refit the rear lights, I'm going to try some matte black vinyl over the rear centre panel/number plate area, can easily be removed if I don't like it,

Covered the paint in wax to prevent the vinyl from gripping as i didn't want to pull any paint off..... Just been cutting it to size to get the shape I want, then ill draw it on inkdcape and run it through the plotter,
