Lol, I hate that Eagle one, s**t thing doesn't smell. I have my trusty Ambi Pur one back on the passenger vent.

Headlights aint' exactly yellow, they are misty, coz I fudged up the cleaning with sandpaper bit. > : /

Mash I don't like the EF/EL XR wheels, AU wheels look better. Might just spray the ones I have for now.

Yeah I guess it is considerable effort. Always have to watch you don't break things, bugger up electronic stuff, reconnect things the wrong way, etc. etc.

But as you see, and as I can foresee, it will be worth it.

i have done similer (matte black) i found for the plasics a "plastic primer" realy helped against scratches, esp on the door handles.

for my dash i sprayed it in the car, just a LOT of prep, take everything off the dash that you can (dials air con vents), then paper cover everything else (windscreen, steering wheel) and then spray very light coats as you dont want a run on an efel dash it would stand out heaps.

great job, its good to see someone do the whole lot, to many of these spray jobs end in unpainted stuff like shifter surounds, and aircon vents.

p.s. i found that when i did mine the el shifter suround looked better cos it has just white letters not red and blue ones

great job

Lookin good mate. thats exactly how i started out doing my interior. Looked so good, i sparyed the whole dash, then the doors, center console. will soon be needing black carpet, rooflining, and seat retrims. will never want to go back to the grey. And the gli climate unit was a b*****d to mask off. lol
