I'm fairly sure that the battery in your boot needs to be in a sealed box vented to the outside of the car only, for legal reasons. Good job otherwise!

I know what you mean. I thought it was going to be the hardest part. I just got myself some nice automotive Jet Black Velour and did the same thing you described... Worked a treat :D

Yeh Nicco... so you keep saying. I've found them on eBay as well. How much are they from Ratman do you know? I'm a tad pressed for cash after the new stereo equipment and boot install... Coles don't pay us Duty Managers enough :(

So what's 10 years??? :lol: I did that coz I'm used to putting in a fake age so I don't get restricted with all the usual "NO UNDER 18's" s**t that sites like myspace have...
I'll change it... I didn't even think twice about it... besides... I'm 18 in a few months :D

How did you paint your interior?

My mates doing his at the moment, and I'd be interested to know how you did yours as it came up really nice.

SEPTONE VINYL & PLASTIC PAINT... Magic stuff :D readily available at Supercheap Auto for about $15 a can. And yes... they sold it to me... a 17 year old :twisted:

Image

I did a little bit with it at the start just to make sure it wasn't crap and then I did everything! Even the doors. I swear that my plastic scratches before the paint does. It works like a dream. I've done the hard plastic as well as the softer vinyl and it sticks to both surfaces great. It dries nice and fast as well.

I just wiped down the surface with a very small amount of thinners and made sure it was dust and crap free then gave it a tack coat of this and then two or three good coats once the tack coat had dried. I haven't had a problem with it yet.

But remember, it is still paint and will scratch/rub off if your not at least a bit careful with it. But for $15 a can you can afford to do a touch up here and there :D
