I like what you have done to the interior so far.The three knobs for the heating are really smart.
[size="2"]Thanks Mate, Appreciate the feedback, the knobs are £30 on e-bay but only £4 in china
their proper quality though, carved from one piece [/size][font="Calibri"][font="Arial"][size="2"]Aluminium and a plastic front plate type disc, available in a range of anodised colours, match the stereo knob lovely, really happy with them, very easy to change them and fit, I've done a guide its in the list of guides at the bottom of my posts[/size][/font].

Nice job Lenny , I like it , did you use any cleaning solution on the glove box before applying , does the glove box decor protrude out meaning are you lightly to slice any more flesh on the decors if you run your fingers across?
are you going to get the light switch surround and the glove box handle release?
I will email my Chinese work mate tonight to see if he managed to get me my Switch knobs
Thanks for the comments mate,
i was Just wondering how you were getting on with your purchase of the knobs, id love a red halo for my ignition.
The glove box panel is 100% safe not sharp at all, it's the little air vent surrounds are the razor ones, but once they're stuck on the dash there safe
I used Holts Glass Screen wipes on the dash prior to sticking in place and running the hair dryer over them gently pressing along the strips,
I chose glass wipes as they won't leave a grease or waxy residue on the surface.
the glove box decor does protrude slightly due to the depth of the 3M adhesive tape on the rear of the panel, this is unavoidable due to the nature of the tape,
but a maximum protrudion of 2mm mate,
However the glove box decor doesn't protrude from the curve of the glove box angle, in the sense that if you were to wipe or rub your hand up the glove box door from the footwell upwards,
you would not catch your hand on the decor or run the risk of pulling it off the dash,
the only risk of pulling it from the dash i have found and experienced firsthand for myself is:
when I was changing the bulb in the glove box to LED i got out of the car to fetch a screwdriver and left the glove box door open,
on return to the car it was raining so I leapt like a ballerina in to the passenger seat,
my jeans caught in the decor strip of the glove box and it curled off like a banana skin
once that happens it's impossible to straighten again as it kinks
So my only option was to buy again.
I had the previous one for almost a year and no problems 100%
suppose on a normal case you wouldn't enter or exit the car with the glovebox open.
As for adding more of the sellers parts to the car,
I feel adding the headlight control surround along with whats already been fitted may be a little OTT for the car considering all of the items I've fitted to it already,
I have also noticed in the sellers listing pictures, the cars he has the items fitted in..
None of them have any 2 of his items in the one Car, I appreciate the amount of custom accessories he manufactures for the car and each one does look great fitted on its own or grouped with some of his items, and their all precision cut pieces.
But in my opinion if all of them were purchased and fitted to the one car it would be too much bling.
The only other items from the seller I plan to fit are the speaker surrounds for the doors,
I was talking to him about these and he plans to be selling a four piece set of these commencing next month, so ill have two for the front and two for the rear doors,
