yeah there were map lights behind the sunvisors, the sunvisors have a slide mirror, there were also two small lights above each rear passenger on the side, and there was a high series dome light with map lights also.

Have you wired up the courtesy lamps on the door trims?
change your stuff to EL so it has matching colour buttons. ef stuff had black buttons?
auto aerial??? high series BEM would be required

hmmm... thanks for the thoughts nick - there has been pretty much nothing done lighting-wise in the car - may have to track down the courtsey lamps/ghia etc - although as mine is a futura, i have the lights above the passenger handles, and the map light in the centre dome - so some of that is done.

with you blue LED mod for the door handles - were they drilled thru the actual chrome handle, or the surround? cause my door handles are solid chrome ones...

edit: theres an aftermarket electric aerial already - works well, so not going to bother changing it - lol plus i hate the radio anyways! :P

I covered kick panels in the wagon - came up nicer than the factory carpet too I reckon :)

Fraser - I've already had this discussion with you - got full cappucino DF LTD conversion...none of this velour crap - do it properly and stop being flacid :P

Got yourself a high series NF/DF/NL/DL interior dome lamp yet ? Interior roof mounted 'flick' switches ? Rear elec window conversion ? PAB / Dash conversion ? Perhaps look at custom leathered gear shifter, handbrake handle and steering wheel - that's what I did in the wagon - much nicer leather than the stock crap :)

It's endless what you can do and how much you can spend - what about leathering your dash or console...yes the whole thing lol

Think outside the square...but try and keep it tasteful :D

yes

I was gonna get 7" screen in the passeger side, but I couldn't find any place that'd recover it. They kept saying some s**t about it being illegal. One place was goona help me (cash in hand no receipt job), but pulled out, just days before the Canberra Show 'n Shine - I wasn't happy.
