Ok guys I have seen pics and posts of your mods inside and have become somewhat inspired to do my own so I have come seek advice and your opinion

First of all I'm think red footwell and map lights
Second I'm wanting the area around the sound system wrapped all the way down and past the gearbox/handbrake the silver door panels and the silver on the steering wheel wrapped and probably the silver around the blowers done too I was thinking white/silver carbon fibre as its rarer and I personally think better than the black
I might if I have the correct knowledge put in a second boot light and obv brighter bulbs.

so to wrap these bits can I take each bit out ? If so anybody got a guide for me to do so could you send me a link and let me know what you guys think

Oh ps any other suggestions are welcome

Quoting a wise man here ;)

The ashtray just clips into place under the demister panel and the gear surround on a 2.5 is glued to the upper console piece.
To remove the ashtray unit you'll need to remove the whole upper console piece.
On a mk2 you'd only need to unclip both parts of the gear surround.
I think for your model it's 4 screws at the rear and 2 bolts at the front and the footwell side panels need to come off too but they are one screw each under pop off covers.
Sorry it's more involved than on a mk2.


Taken from one of Oxides threads when he wrapped the same pieces your talking about.

Found here:

As for the second boot light mod it's very easy and well worth it so you can actually see in there at night, and as for which boot bulbs I'd really recommend the LED pads that I have.

As for the foot wells, Oxide can also link you to a good bright red LED that he's already purchased. I think he may have linked it in a fieata club LED discussion. You should also install rear footwell lighting mate really sets the car off and Lennys done a great guide already. Although it is actually very simple.

Have you got an LED ignition barrel yet?

As for colours I was thinking red to match the power button cd player screen and the red on the info screen between the gauges

Scroll about half way down this page to Oxides post where he links some good RED leds

http://www.fordowner...d/page__st__150

I think the ebay listing has ended but the seller would have relisted em n you should be able to click to the new listing.

I can't do this right now as I'm on my phones net lol that's why it's taking me ages to go off n find the threads.

Another small interior mod, how about the custom heating controls that we all have lol? You can get different colours round the edges so you could get silver to match the carbon wrap or think you can get red to match the footwells

Having the red submarine lights looks really good with the power button and red glow from the dials/stereo. If I had footwell sockets in mine I would put some red bulbs in there too.

For the radio surround carbon wrapping is good but for me seems a bit pointless as you won't be able to do the heated screen buttons

I have gone for blue courtesy and footwell the same as Brigante but has anyone considered green to match up with the radio and instrument readout?
And can you get green anyway?

Ahh this is where my work is good as I can get the vinyl printed to match the chosen vinyl then print the symbols over that then laminate them cut out a rectangle for the amber light then should fit on top nicely.
