In continuation of my previous post, I can now reveal that I have installed my Red LED lights and installed the dials back into the car!
Inspired by many other owners, and due to the fact I’m not using my MR2 – I thought now would be the perfect time to modify my MR2 dials.
I basically wanted something subtle but very effective, so I chose to add some aluminium dial rings and a carbon fibre overlay with 3M Di-Noc vinyl. I also decided to modify the standard (dull) lights and bought myself some LED’s, but these are yet to arrive through the post! Once they are here, I’ll add another blog post to record the results.
Among the MR2 community it is commonplace for owners to often replace old and worn interior parts for new – and this also applies to gear knobs.
Truth be told, the original gear knob on my MR2 was in fantastic condition for it’s age, but I just couldn’t resist purchasing a refurbished gear knob from Rhon over at the MR2OC. Rhon produces fantastic quality, hand-stitched leather replacements for gear gaiters, gear knobs and door cards.
[04/03/2012] EDIT: Unfortunately, I’ve made the decision to remove this Quick Release kit. As fantastic as it may be, I just can’t get used to the new driving position such a device creates. It brings the steering wheel far too close to me for my liking – and is something that I just won’t be able to get used to. However, I shall leave the information below intact for future reference.
I hadn’t treated myself to any new goodies for my MR2 for a few weeks so I thought I’d just spruce up the interior of my ‘2 a little bit!
First things first, my Momo Boss Kit. I’d heard the official Momo kits for Rev3+ cars were quite hard to come by and rather expensive (…so they say), so I was more than happy to find this one from a fella on eBay for £30 posted:
