Ride: Fairlane NC

Location: Melbourne. SE
VIC, Australia

i did the whole blue led interior and footwell light thing which was ok, but i couldnt find any leds that fit the rear courtacy lights and i thing the centre spotlights, so i had to use those silocone condom things which turned out kinda crap.

then one of the crappy leds blew a fusable link which was verry anoying. so i took em all out. except for the footwells cause i didnt get around to it. and they actually look alright just by themselves.

Yeah it came up very well. I might to A/C controls and gear selector if i can be a*** to maybe too. The series 1 au's had the similar LCD to the E series, like how its light digits on dark background with orange filter. I wouldn't mind mine to be red but its a series 2, so its black digits on light grey background, would be hard to do i'd imagine.. :?
