    Cheers man! well both front and rear bumpers I've got opel stickers on for now.. I'm working on getting chrome badges to complete the look :P
    hahaa yeah some people go way over board with these cars and in my taste they ruin a simple but beautiful car!

    Small Update!

    Today using a spare Led strip I had lying around, I wired it up illuminate the area under the ashtray as it was looking quite dark and lonely there :P It looks alot brighter on this pic than it really is.. seems my phone cant handle bright light properly!



    Do I need it? Not really.. but I like it and it's now inspired me to put white strips into the door cards so I get a good balance of white and red led lighting around me!

    Also as she stands!

    Update Time!

    I've installed some White LED converted switches. Mine originally had just the rear fog light and just the headlight switcher. Now I've got the front fog and headlight adjuster also in white LED. Loving the look.. even though they aren't connected to anything.. hopefully the front Fog switch (which was a pain to find) will be good motivation to grab a set of angel eyes soon!

    Before: Stock Orange (Very dull was annoying me)


    After: White LED's


    The on indicator I've gone for red.


    Loving the fresh vibes in the car. Atm I've ordered my 3 remaining heater control switches which are still yet to be converted to white to finish the look.
    I think the white is alot more fresh and modern. Last night I converted my mate's Hyundai Accent speedo to blue LED's and gosh was it annoying to look at!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In other news last night I fiddled with some spare LED strips and hooked them up in a way that they light up the footwells only when the doors open! Loving this DIY mod!



    Hardest part was finding which wire was which since before I installed them they were a pair of multi coloured LED's.

    That's all for now! some more wiring up of LED strips to come! Stay tuned!

    Yep I have remote locking system, and both my handles are key hole free. Theft prevention at its best
    To be honest at first I was weary of having no keyholes but I like them now, worst comes to worst I have a spare set of batteries if my remote goes flat and can always revert back to standard calibra handles, I left the standard key barrels there!

    Hehe
    I've been thinking of removing them as I'd like to make somewhat a ''show'' car, but its gonna be a summer car that can actually be on the roads, unlike some of the other show cars i've seen.
    Trying to get it all clean.
