    Hey everyone thought it was about time i started a thread on what i done to my car, Some of it is an improvement, some of it iv nawsed up and other bits aint fully finished yet but this is a start. My to do list so far is as follows. Tint the windows, put black leather seats in, recolour the parcel shelf black, fix the 18 button obc, change the leds to blue and add a few carbon fibre bits to it.

    This is what my car used to look like:

    I was under the inpression that red interior would look good but was wrong

    I then started the 18 button obc from the analoge clock fit heres a few pics of that. My old analoge clock had a blue bulb in it and it doesnt show up to well on the pic sorry. The only thing i still need to sort out is the outside temp but hopefully getting that sensor soon.

    Next up was the dials as they were abit plain and boring lol changed the lights to blue, put carbon fibre sticker around the dials then fitted some chrome rings to give it a finishing touch

    This is where its being a mess, The outside sticker i brought off a mate left it on my car for about a week and really couldnt get myself to like it so just took it off no big deal but the carbon fibre sticker around the centre console i do like but not sure where i went wrong while fitting it as theres creases or air bubbles in it so need to take that off and try again i think is there a techniec to applying it or was i just unlucky? On the upside tho i changed the standard footwell speakers to some new more bassy ones which are louder 120watts and are clearer aswell

    Cheers mate, I like it the only thing that i dont get is where i went wrong wiith the carbon fibre on the centre console, gonna be ripping that off soon as it looks naff when its not done properly. Iv got a few plans for it yet tho, Pull the blue gaiters out and put some black leather m3 ones in, Get a new gear knob as the carbon fibre one dont fit it properly keeps working loose cuz theres not enough room between the inside of that and the gearstick to put the plastic cover you get with them so the screws aint gripping the metal pole and keep working loose so put the original one back in it was either that or the red and chrome one which wont look right with the blue gaiter lol, I wanna tint the windows then put some black leather seats in it, get some angel eyes and that will do for now just saving up to do them bits to it. Take it one step at a time or i will get lost on what i am and aint doing
