Hi Byrnie,

Firstly, please drop the "txt spk" - it doesn't help anyone on the forums ;)

The world is your oyster when it comes to interiors, from seat re-trims to sprayed panels and chrome dress up kits. Why don't you post a photo of how it looks currently so folks can suggest more easily?

The carbon dash panels are relatively cheap at the moment. Spray the rest black and it looks much better.

I done a little more with genuine GP dials, JCW sports steering wheel, all carbon and Innovate gauges.

With the almighty Dremel tool and a lot of (precise) work :)

It's a one of a kind with all original MINI parts and cheaper than the 400 pound carbon buttons I have seen somewhere on the internet which still had silver buttons.

Looks very good :cool:

For the original poster, here's a pic of my old Cabrios interior. It has the factory colour coded (cool blue) dash and door bezels. I added all the chrome, colour coded gear knob, JCW wheel in leather and colour coded the wheel trims in cool blue too :p

Plus a few other bits like Cooper S pedals, Roadpilot, etc ;)

Where did you get the dial surrounds?

From a German company who does not make them anymore.
They are full replacements and not sheeted originals, therefore not as big as sheeted ones.

They were not cheap but I did not see them anywhere else so far, most of the ones currently for sale are sheeted.

Im thinking of doing the whole of the plastic stuff in the interior piano black apart from the Speedo ring,
rev counter,
horn surrounds on the steering wheel,
gearstick surround,
electric mirror surround

because i want to do them yellow :D

Then get yellow/black speedo and rev counter backings
