    I put a high-brightness LED directly in support of the Yellow button.
    Takes work, but it's better to stick on the cover, because then we can take the lid off smoothly as originally.

    [​IMG]

    I put a timer controller for 6 sec. Key to the current mode to connect lights late at night if it is, not "abusing" the balatros Xenon.

    [​IMG]

    The Module Automatic lights stayed behind the fuse box:

    [​IMG]

    The plug for connecting the LED:

    The button ready to go:

    I put a radio PIONEER "cheap" only provisionally.

    [​IMG]

    The speakers were all "dead".

    I decided to invest in one more MOD of the [COLOR = "# 0000FF"] "BigBlue" [/COLOR]
    Two Components Speakers "Velocity V6 Vantage" on the doors.

    Another small mod to adjust the sensitivity of the light sensor (VALEO).

    Soldered 3 resistors 1kOhm + 330 + 300 in series with a 220 Ohm potentiometer. I isolated all with thermal sleeve and pasted the potentiometer to the cover of the controller sensor.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Drilled the box to have access to the potentiometer in order to adjust the sensitivity on the outside:

    Here is the DIY:

    I cut de originals grills, leaving only the Vertical reenforments so I didn't weaken the struture.
    I cut the ABS net with carefull.

    [​IMG]

    For a better finish I Glued a freaze all around de grill.

    [​IMG]

    I glued the ABS net to the origanal estruture with 2 components glue:
    And finish with fiber past.

    Sand it all with 100, 150 and at last with 800 for a perfect finish.
