Image

current look re rwc

Image


Image


Image


original look when bought - if you look closely at the passenger airbag & just above the centre air vents [left & right] you will see some 'marks' which were from the [i presume?] car yard clean it recieved [they stood out alot more in real life]. these marks can now no longer be seen [YAY!].

Image



one thing that wasn't noticed by anyone :shock: was i changed the original drivers side taillight with another undamaged unit i had. i didn't notice when i originally swapped it ... but when i changed the indicator globe i noticed a problem :cry: :x :? :| .... the taillight would NOT fit into it's two fixed mounting points [the metal locator on the bottom right & the plastic locator on mid left] which had me stumped :lol: .. original would fit with no problems & new would not. . _ turns out the car had been hit sometime in it's life & when who ever it was fixed it, the rear of the quarter finished approx 5mm further out :roll: . taillight has been heated & is currently being held down by two ocker straps [for a cupla days] to see if it will hold the 'new' shape :wink:

so over all .. all good :mrgreen:

does anyone have a modified dash OR has anyone modified their dash for the two sets of switches either side of the steering column? [refer pic below]

Image

that is my current one, but i don't like how the switch on the left sits [and NO it's how i bought it].




this is the 'new' one waiting to be done.

Image

Hey Mad,no haven't done but you could make the recess with MDF and apoxy it in on the back-just won't be covered with vynal but switch should cover it nice anyway.

not trying ta pick on ya johhnyHCF ... BUT, don't need the mdf as there is a backing there [dash base]. the left switch currently covers the 'hole' that was cut into the dash. there is maybe 5mm vinyl overlap behind the switch, however i want it to look like the righthand switch. so NO MDF at ALL :!:
