here is the start of my dash mod. i have also done my side air vents aswell. you cant see it in this pic but it actually has a green pearl that comes through in the sunlight! looks pretty awesome with the rays hitting it.

just wondering what i should do next? something with the dials?

what do u guys think...open to opinions

cheers

yeah i was thinkn of doin that but i have seen others and it just looks too much. if u know what i mean? i think the grey breaks up the dash a bit better.

has anyone done green led conversions yet? including green aircon lights and time???

I'd take ya gear knob off, and get a bolt with the same size thread, add some buiders bog/araldite and leave it over night!

nothing worse than those knobs turning!

ohh yeh, i used a bolt cos plastic bog works very well and you almost have to put it in a vise to remove the bolt! but the thread will stay good!
or order a newy for $8.52 from fraud!

ohh yeh, interior looks nice, different

yeah im currently playin around with photoshop at the moment.
dont really wanna put too much detail on the dials as the blue leds that im also doin may look too cluttered? too confusiong to look at the speed and all if u know what i mean

looks nice. I'd be going a custom cluster facia to continue the theme.

Also i agree with EFFalcon. You need to paint the clock, airvent, aircon surrounds. It makes it look a bit messy :(
