I've already done the chrome handles, the woodgrain auto tran surround, globes colour changes. What else is there for me to do that is cheap and easy?

You got courtesy lamps in your doors?
Try putting LED's i your door handles, they light up nicely and look pretty snazzy on grey interior.
Look OK on cappa, but gotta change all the other lights to match.
Painted the cluster surround of your cluster?
Carpeted kick panels?

Chrome LED handles :D I think theres a doco on it here. You can also do the dash mods and change those LED's as well as the LED filter paper (normally orange).

Other than that not much else i would say. :wink:

As sugested, paint the dash surround/stereo surround and gear surround. Ive just done mine in a flat black, and it looks sexy:P You could also fit up the fairlane interior lights (think there is a docco) which doesnt cost much, just some globe holders and cheap wire. Instead of buying carpeted kick panels, just get the carpet and do em yourself, bit of contact glue works a treat.

Yer, the doco has been removed or lost, either one.
Pretty easy mod, remove trim, drill hole in handle for the led to fit, glue the led into the hole and wire up to the wiring for the door lamps.

Another interior mod that comes to mind is car audio. What system do you currently have? If it is the original factory unit then perhaps you could replace it with a much better system.

Something else I just thought of is communication gear......Alot of people here on fordmods have a UHF radio installed in their cars which proves very useful during fordmods cruises.

Are you doing this to your EF or EL? If its your EF look into color coding all the buttons, or repaint the dash black (professionally of course), EL GT style so your buttons become color coded. The black buttons are the only thing I dislike about my EF.
