Firstly... like the corsa matey! Looks similar to my own :thumbs: Yeah fitted the LED's last weekend... got them from cobra on here good price as well!

Firstly pull out the CD player a bit so that u can get to the top of the panel, then pull that off with a screwdriver being careful not to scratch the dash. The bottom part will come away with a bit of gentle tweaking around, but don't snap the lugs off! It might take a while to get it off but don't snap ought off! The bulbs are in there behind a plastic cover, looks great when done! I've got blue LED's in speedo, MFD, heater panel and stereo is blue LCD and gonna put blue LED's in glove box for DVD player and in small pocket under steering wheel where remotes are kept, also got neons in footwells but not connected at moment because of new DVD player wired in and not got round to re-wiring them in again. Also gonna do custom blue LED roof lighting eventually, so blue is all round... cool! 8) Hope that helps mate.

know what you mean I've got loads of original ideas but the cash comes in slowly! Want to do a lot more with the interior lighting blue neons and LED's wherever I can... just put some LED's in the little compartment to the right of the steering wheel where I keep my remotes looks good! Then gonna put some in the glove box where my DVD is as there is no light in there... don't know why? Then some more neons under the seats to the rear and below wherever I can get them but so that there out of sight as this looks better. Then the roof LED's and probably get some more ideas by then... good thing is that when you ain't got a lot of money its good to do the interior because it don't cost much for LED's but you just need to be good and electrics and have a good imagination and car to use it in! :wink:

Yeah, know what you mean mate, did same here. Got cheaper CD player at about £75 then got screen at £150 then the facia at £15 the adapter at £35 paint to colour match the trims £15 in total then the DVD player at £130 the had to make panel for glove box which probs came to about £20, and all that was through a contact who got it all at cost price for me! :wink: So if I bought it all myself it would of probably come to over £800 or something. I'll get some pics up of my interior soon. The lad who had it before me got the outside sorted he evn got custom made leather seats done, so I'm just completing the interior! 8) Eventually it will all be done so in the end the whole interior of the car will be worth a few grand... not bad really! Then it will be the outside tweaks such as neons new rear lights etc, then finally the engine and custom exhaust. Worked out it will probably take me a year to get it all done with what money I get coming in. Keep coming up with original ideas all the time so will be an original corsa c in the end.

who said anything about being generous... I'm a right tight sod! :lol: Yeah didn't you know I'm loaded... yeah thats why I'm running round in a corsa... obviously my ferarri is in the garage. :D If I had the cash mate I would lend you it, but when its between a weeks shopping or my next mod... and I choose the mod leaving me starving for the week I can't exactly spare anything at the minute... you know how it is :wink: Since I put my DVD gear in I've had to do short runs to avoid using excess petrol, got by on toast and crisps and not drank a bit of alcohol all month! Just wait till I get paid... oh hold on... cha ching!!! there it goes, this months pay cheque... now what should I do - buy some food or do my interior lighting? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... its a hard one.... thats the interior lighting of course.... how am I going to wire it in??? :thumbs:
