done that plenty of times.

 

When I get them, I will take some measurements and let you know, then you can take a gamble on them if you want :)

Well, the protectors arrived (given that estimated delivery was 9-14th September (from Germany!) they arrived very quickly!

 

Measurements are 85mm * 695mm (front) and 85mm * 295mm (rear)

 

Not going to get to fit them for a while now, but I will put the pics up when I have done!

So, everybody else seems to have one of these threads, I thought I would join the trend! :) So, welcome to the not-anywhere-near-as-exciting-as-Lenny's-thread-but-still-modifying-my-bus-thread :)
 
So, I dont have too many pictures of the car before I started, but you should hopefully catch the drift as we go! Anyway, I will take some decent pictures soon and get them uploaded but for now:
 
To start, the first thing I had to do, was replace as many standard filament bulbs with LED's. I cant stand the yellow colour, and I prefer the idea that if I do inadvertently leave my lights on, the car will still work anyway when I get back to it! So for now, I will post this and update with later pictures!
 
So to start, I replaced the sidelights with LED's I then went on to install some Dipped Headlights, but Xenon 6000k White output:
 
sidelights (baring in mind this was taken in the brilliant sun, so you cant really see a lot, but they are white as per my avatar)
 
http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1497.l2649
 
IMAG0013_zps5641e156.jpg

Then I replaced the rear tail lights:
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item20c43d824d
Dual Filament for standard light and fog light
 
IMAG0020_zpsdd01d714.jpg
 
fog lights (same bulb but brighter output)
 
IMAG0019_zpsd72cd5e8.jpg
 
 
number plate bulbs and
 
brake lights:
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item53eb203198
 
IMAG0015_zps44fd3b59.jpg
 
Also Reverse Lights:
 
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item53f6cc9749
 
IMAG0016_zpsb4c5a832.jpg
 
After I finished this, my obsession with LED's continued: so I installed LED's inside:
 
Courtesy Lights:
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item5d431832b5
 
DSCF0048_zps718e45b0.jpg
 
Illuminated Ignition Barrel:
 
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4cff471281
 
DSCF0029_zps01b0c656.jpg
 
Footwell Lighting:
 
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4172be57c0
 
DSCF0001_zps05db9568.jpg

and the rear:
 
DSCF0004_zps89ba4a2e.jpg
 
I also fitted the rear windows out with Privacy shades, as the tints were FAR too expensive around here, and I got these for about £75 from 'vanstyles'. I think they compliment the tinted look but without affecting insurance or my wallet as hard!

DSCF0042_zps793ffef4.jpg
 
DSCF0041_zps43ff38f7.jpg
 
And with the Windows down:
 
IMAG0014_zps56a09ffb.jpg
 
Last job was to install DRL lights, I wish I could have gotten the same style that Lenny and Preee (and many others have) but these I thought where not too bad!

and their output against a wall:
 
Off:
 
DSCF0047_zps550f5bbe.jpg
 
On:
 
DSCF0046_zps225a2d0a.jpg
 
So far, thats all I can remember doing, I will take some decent pictures, and keep you in the loop with any further changes to my motor :)
