    Default fuel filter changed, cleaned + few mods (pics)

    alright guys after my new fuel filter sitting in my boot decided to do it first thing this morning dead easy to do took ten mins.
    i had a rough idle but as you will see from picture filter is terrible not suprised that it was rough lovely and smooth now.

    also sprayed my vent surrounds black sapphire i think it looks much better.

    wired in a 36 red led board to roof light and at night lights up entire car just the effect i was going for i know it wont be everyones taste. i still have lights to fit in footwells and replace the ones in boot, i have all the wiring in place and just need to get the switch wich i am conceiling so i can switch off if need be.

    to finish off i cleaned the old girl down and looks lovely and shiney not bad considdering i didnt polish it

    Each to their own. Not keen on red LEDs myself, prefer blue. Why do you need a switch for the footwell lights? Just wire them into the spare courtesy light socket you now have. Are you doing all the vents? Looks a bit odd on its own in satin. Unless you wrapped the dash trim too........

    I do like your front grille though!
