    carbon fibre speedo :-)

    hi all, bought a carbon fibre bezel off ebay and fitted it today, thought id put it on here n show ppl as its quite a nice cheap little mod.



    whilst the bezel wasnt a perfect fit over it, it still looks great as it blends in pretty well, id totally reccomend it!
    oh and if you've got rings (like on my dash) then you will have to remove them and glue them back on after, which is easier than it sounds.
    all in all totally worth it

    I wasn't so daft as to make that mistake. I used forward thinking & wiped off my grubby finger prints & then re-fitted everything

    Then i noticed i'd got my grubby finger prints on the INSIDE of the plastic cover for the clocks

    out everything had to come once again lol.
