Depends how much you want to spend. You could do something fairly cheap like painting dash parts, or change your cluster to LED lighting.
Or you could spend a crapload of $$$$ and change your seats to leather seats of a BA fairlane. Then retrim your door trims to match the seats. That'd look awesome!
I wish i had enough money to do that.

Its pretty easy to paint dash parts mate. All it takes is a $5 can of spray paint and abit of clear coat. One of the cheapest interior mods you could do lol

both those things have been covered many times.
theres even a doco on the led dash mod ! and a sticky at the top of the forum

both are very easily doable, and very cost effective !

Also you can buy LEDs that you just swap over with the globes in your cluster so you don't have to worry about soldering and resisters and all that gay.
Just thought i'd mention

Start by looking at what other people have done, reading up on how to do it. Then plan out what you want to do inititally and start somewhere small so if you f**k up it wont be bad. Once you've worked out how to do stuff it'll make it easier for the harder parts of the job which you'll be able to do confidently and without and toruble. The only problem is that your plans will change to include something else yout want or have seen somewhere lol
