I'm looking for ways to change up the interior. I figure, that's what I see all the time so that would be a good place to start working on. Anybody got any ideaas? So far I have a double din and floor mats. I'm working on putting leather in the door panel inserts below the wood grain. I'm looking to make it more luxury, so let your imaginations flow!! Oh, and I like the woodgrain.

Painting the interior trim is becoming a little more popular these days.

Since you have a column shifter, you could change that over to a floor shifter.

Aside from that, I don't know anything that isn't going to be a lot of time and/or money invested.

You could get one of the PFYC wheel skins like Chibiblacksheep got.



I'll be getting one for the Monte once I get the misfire figured out.

I'd also consider upgrading your interior 194 bulbs to LEDs to get a soft white glow in the car as opposed to the yellow filament color you get from the stock bulbs. I did the Monte a few years back and love it so much that I'll be doing the Intrigue in the near future.

Buckets and console is an option, but can't find any available here. That wheel skin looks great! That is for sure on the list now. I've been thinking about the led's. Did you get yours from superbrightleds? I found a ton on ebay that I think I'd rather get than $3.50 each. Also, I want pure soft white, not any blue. Post a pic of yours Iffy.

I got mine from V-Leds, but i can't find the ones I bought (it's been almost 3+ years, so I'm sure they have changed suppliers/products). Unfortunately, my camera sucks at capturing images of my LED upgrades. However, an old user got some great pictures of his white LEDs if you can get past the blue LEDs in the footwells.

Seems to be pure white. I like it. How much did those run you? And which ones/closest to what you have that they offer now did you get? I don't want it to be way too bright

I wouldn't worry about it being too bright by any means, it's certainly brighter than the filament bulbs from the factory, but it's by no means obnoxious. Mine ran about 5 bucks a bulb, appears like they have a lower price point now, but they are out of stock on the closest thing to what I bought.

I can't bring myself to pay that much for each bulb. There's a total of 9 bulbs to replace. Maybe I'll try my luck with ebay first. Any other ideas? I've got gray letherette and trying to think of projects I can do with that. Again, I'd like to do some sort of luxury/vip style

Trust me, they are worth every penny. I've only had one crap out on me (and that's the blue one I put in the shifter indicator light) so I'm in no rush to replace it. Keep in mind if you cheap out on the LEDs you might end up with super directional bulbs that just suck. The V-leds I linked are down-firing and do a good job in the housings in our cars.

Also, V-leds tends to have sales on a frequent basis. I usually get an email for 20% off or something like that every 6 weeks or so. Next time I get one I'll PM you the code for the discount.

Alright thanks. B/c shipping will suck for me too
