Me too! After owning that brown leather, couldn't think of any other interior colour!

It took 3 days of work to do everything, but it's completely worth it.

No. :shock:

To get the the lights on and working I needed the bulb holder for the newer light as they used different bulb holders and the reverse light, the other bulbs I swapped from the old bulb holder.

Then modifying the plug a little

Take out boot lining... etc etc

How did you do it? Changed the leather or painted? Do you have pictures of the whole process of change?

Hey,

Just did a complete interior swap, from one car to another. Changed complete seats, door panels, rear panels.

It's just about to remove everything and then install everything again, plus I removed complete interior to do a HiFi retrofit (wires had to go through the car...).
