Knew it had a different design but assumed the garage door n gear surround came out the same.

Will look good when you got everything wrapped Oxide mate

Finally done! Took long enough, got the gear stick surround done on the second try. Quite happy with how it all looks.

Thanks all for the help and feedback, can't wait to get started on my next mod. I'm thinking footwell lighting and cupholder lighting? Sounds like fun.

Very nice job you've done there mate. A cheap n very easy mod to nicely finish off the centre console nicely would be custom heating control knobs, many of us on the forum have them lol.

Could always carbon wrap your steering wheel inserts too while your at it.

What colour LEDs you thinking?

I've completely converted all my interior lighting to LED including front n rear footwells, map reading n courtesy light, glove box n boot. May do the door handles at some point if I can be arsed lol.

A great and relatively easy mod for exterior lighting would be a second reverse light, well worth doing.

Oh and you can see what I mean about doing all that for under 8quid as apposed to hundreds of pounds on new parts lol. How much wrap have you got left after doing it all?

Definitely thinking about doing a full interior swap for red LEDs because the radio and speedo are already red. List of things I wanna do atm include:
Front and rear footwell LEDs (red)
Ignition ring
Map reading light to red (maybe, haven't seen one yet)
Cupholder LED's (red)
DRL's
Rear LED Badge (braking/revers red/white)

Seen loads of cool stuff on here to do, but it might be a bit of a steep learning curve. No real experience in wiring or electrics so could get a bit tricky.

I'll probably start with the footwell, ignition and cupholder lighting depending on when I have the time/funds. Off to germany next week for 8 days so I might try and order some stuff in before I go.

And I still have loads of wrap left, not as much as I expected because I had to bin my first attempt at the gear surround but still enough to do laptop, ipad and phone maybe.

Nice little list to work through there. I had no experience what so ever when I started out either. When I bought the car I had no intention of doing any mods at all. Then I came across this forum lol and well my car speaks for itself. Still got that much more I wanna do too.

When you get a moment, have a mooch through my thread

All my mods so far in one place, may give you some inspiration.

Looks good mate, need to figure out what I'm doing with these led's because I'm a bit confused as to where to mount them. I think there are 2 bulb holders already installed in my footwells but I'm not sure wether they'll be bright enough or if I should mount my own?

Footwell lighting and red courtesy lighting are definitely first on my list

If you have bulbs already there rather than just the holes to mount the holders them just whack in some decent Led bulbs instead.
They will make a lot of difference from standard t10 bulbs.
The standard ones are horribly dull and yellow.
Failing that you can splice in some nice led strips along the underside of the dash.

If there are bulb holders in place just whack a bulb in to see if theres power to it. Long as you got a decent LED in there it'll spread the light and fill the footwells nicely, just look at mine. Also, if theres power to the front foot-well lighting, it'll make it a lot easier when installing the LED ignition barrel cause you can wire it straight to the driverside footwell instead of routing it to the courtesy light.

And for a cheap but effective mod for around 20quid, you can install rear footwell lighting by routing the wire to the passenger side footwell.

Damn it Clive you beat me to it by a second

Was gonna mention the LED strips cause I was thinking about it too but me bulbs seem to spread the light enough just fine

Just spotted this, everything you'd of needed but got the wrong head unit surround. I'd have gone for it myself if it wasn't for this :unsure:
