My interior looks pretty stock other than my short shifter, and painted cluster surround. I also have a rear seat delete, but I don't have any pictures of it.

ahh looking good. ive started by changing the gear knob and handbreak handle, ive just ordered a chrome gear surround from richbrook and i was thinking aboutpainting various parts of the dash a different colour. ive been looking into changing all the dash lights from green to blue but the poeple ive spoken to seem to think its not possible beause everything is dyed green or something???

I just did my stock gauge yesterday. You have to take it out and sand/scrape all the green off. The biggest PITA was the glue they use to secure it. The color is easy to take off. The glue globs up if you try to sand. I scraped mine off with a razor blade and then sanded. Some of the green also sticks to the plexi-glass behind the gauge.

It's half way back together. Ready to make a run to dial in the needles. I put in blue bulbs but not the right ones. The light throw is straight out instead of all around. Just some I had around for now. I wanted to make sure I did the wiring right. I didn't use the gauge connection, I just ran it from the console.
