What interior mods should I do(preferably cheapish)?
White EL Falcon GLi Sedan
Any suggestions will be noted(should probably buy a notepad to note them down in)
So far I have a roofmount screen for the dvd player
switches next to the drivers seat to power:
1) Blue LED's under / in the footwells
2) Power for the DVD screen(just in case someone leaves it on)
3) Power for the 600W Inverter in the boot
4) Another interior light switch(the one with the headlight switch is too flimsy and has broken off once so i superglued it back on)
Under the cupholder there are Positive and Negative terminals that lead to the battery (another reason why I have the switches, so that I don't run the battery flat)
So any suggestions would be great.
Thanks

Painting trim pieces is fairly cheap and can give you a very individual look to your ride.

Somewhere on these forums iirc, there is templates to make your own gauge faces that you can then take to get printed up. Use something like photoshop or gimp to make them up. It may be cheaper than buying the white ones off ebay. Search the forums, and possibly take a look that this thread.....

i am going to paint the center console and re upholster the lid for the console. Does anyone know how to get the paint to adhere to the center console as it is a different plastic to the dash surround.
