    So far I've been replacing the bulbs in the headlights fogs and the interior:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    The driving/main beam and fog bulbs are 5000-5500k the side lights are led 6000k

    The door/puddle lights are led now and i've started on the interior roof lights and the foot well lights are on order :sm4:

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I've got to sort the boot lock as the micro switch has stopped working plus sort a dodgy conection on the central roof light and i'm going to refurb the head lights soon , then look at getting some facelift rear lights to up date it a bit then start on the leds again :sm4:

    I managed to sort the fog light holder out today it was badly corroded so I dismantled it completely and used the dremel to grind away the rust on the plug terminals , it's not pretty but it works again :)
