Carpeted most of the cab now, much better than beige plastic, all interior lights changed, two spotlights in the headliner ran off a switch mounted on lower dash (the other turns sub on/off, can't deal with bass in the morning๐Ÿฅฑ) then original light swapped for two spotlights on standard switch
Also painted A pillars black ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Great work on the van mate done alot... Fair play for tackling the lights that's something I'd be afraid to do on my mk3 ๐Ÿ˜‚ never mind the. Newer one.. But turned out great ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘

Thank you mate, I'm half way through the second light today, still need to open the first one up again, the indicators in the wrong place

Side bars back on, took them off months ago because I couldn't get them adjusted right at the time as I didn't have a decent jack/axle stands, few hours today playing around with the brackets and washers, they are looking much better ImageImage

Ordered a xenon projector kit yesterday, so headlights not done yet.... I think the halogens are ruining the look at the moment
