Great mod, any chance that this can be done to EF/EL trip computers?

Tickford wings looks better, IMHO.

Looks good.

I would go for the tickford wings, as I think that there is too much detail in the pic of your car, and that would make it too grainy

I think the car looks the part.

Also i agree on the tech doc idea, this is a very creative mod, and i'm interested in doing it.

thats why the wings are only the outline.
to give a back ground effect..
i did try a few other pics and if the pic was bright in colour it looked confusing.

the only problem is it dont look good when the car is turned off. as you cant see the pic as the screen goes black..
