Damnit, my net is going nuts. One sec...

EDIT: There we go, done! Don't know why, but IE is kicking me offline every time a page loads up. Firefox is fine though.

I've changed the interior bulbs for green LEDs, fitting green footwells tomorrow. Next will be calipers painted green, black leather gaiter with green stitching, and black mats with green stitching.

Lol, it's going to be just the right amount of green, apart from the LEDs and calipers (and greenstuff pads) it'll only be stitching. Wheels are going to be black, will look mint when I'm finished.

I just picked a colour theme and went with it. Had a load of blue LEDs etc left over from my Accord, but thought black and blue would just look like a bruise.

I got them from ebay mate, and they are a perfect fit, no rattles, and no wind when you have the windows down even a couple of inches! Tried it out on the motorway.

Here's the ones I got:

Only problem I have found with this type of deflector is that over time the plastic scratches the top of your window, I had them our T180 before swapping for genuine Toyota ones that fit like the JDM ones on the EP3 Civic's and yes our passenger window has scratches now and yes they where correctly fitted.

I assume you mean like loads of fine lines where the window goes up and down, inch in length?

I'm assuming that'll be the metal clips. Doesn't bother me too much to be honest.

Nope, was about to start installing the footwell lights this morning, and managed to slam my thumb in the glovebox. It's not broken, but hurts like a biyatch, so the footwells can wait for another day lol.
