    The modding has started (56k time for a cuppa )

    Well the car has travelled 6000 miles now so i thought it time to start the mods so (all comments welcome )

    1. VXR Intake i used this instead of the veccy c pipe as it uses the same mounts as the old one (no pics sorry )

    2. Pre Cat pipe just waiting on Norms group buy to come in (pics to follow)

    3. Irmy interior handles

    4. Kerb lights

    Now i wanted kerb lights but wanted them to turn on when the door opened , so after taking the door apart and tracing and metering all wires that go to the door and finding no factory wireing had to make up my own switch.So i have mounted a magnetic reed switch in the door and the magnet is mounted under the door sill trim , and im happy with the way it turned out .

    so now on with the pics


    Irmy handles


    Starting to pull the door trim off for the kerb lights


    Mounting the LED's




    Finished and night pics

    Those kerb lights look fancy there and I like the idea of how you managed to get them to work seeing as there's no wiring in the door for it to save running wires everywhere
