I have fitted a retro head unit - all the dash is painted - the rear vents are now illuminated - i have fitted a fold up seat and a swing out table -

  18. Love the vent lights:thumbsup:
     
  19. And just had a thought, make them change colour based on the fuel/air ratio
    Stylish and functional
    P.S. I am sitting in the pub:burp:
