Am not sure how "good" the chrome is but I've learnt one way of making the shine last...

Transparent nail polish.

Remove the bumper, then remove the plastic stock centre grill..... install mesh from inside bumper, hold in place with small cable tie....

for the two sides, cut the mesh grill to size, mesh grill over the area beside the fog light, hold in place with small cable tie, must drill small holes to pass cable tie through.

use chrome strips, form a frame of the side, glue with together with super glue, stick it on the with double sided tape.

the glitter sheet should come with another piece of clear sticker for you to stick onto the part you wanna paste over. Sticker the clear plastic, trace out, remove then stick it on the glitter sheet and cut to size....

Or use masking tape, stick on the part, trace the outline, transfer to glitter, cut to size...

well, nothing is originally from C&C... all leather are done by third party engage by the company....

when I sign purchase agreement, I insisted on light colour seats,... they promised and gave. I did not pay for it, but then I had nothing else, no tinting, no 3M mats, no folding mirror, no visor......, he wanted to give tuff cote at special price, but I said no need.... he wanted to give 3M mats, but I refused as I know they are the cheap ones....

Hi Kapitan,

I like your non-black interior! I'm planning to do down tom to order my forte 1.6 SX(A), and hoping to get a red-brown leather interior instead of black. Could you specify your shade of beige when you ordered?

Thanks for your advice Very Happy

Added pillar lights.... no additional switch added, power is tapped from the cabin reading lights, so when opening doors, all lights lit up, same if you switch on cabin lights....

These are diy.....

Remove the plastic cover of the cabin light.... remove the bulb... you will see two screws, unscrew and remove light fitting, unclip the wires...

On the back side of the light fitting, you can connect wires, .... run the wires through the roof lining..... pull out the rubber on the door frame,.... I used an old wire hanger, unravel it, so that it is long.... push through until it reaches the hole of the cabin light.... tape one end of wire onto the end, then pull out..... the wires are hidden in the rubber lining of the door frame...
