Hi Hugh, I got all my bulbs of ebay. If you have a search for Dash LED's, you will be able to see the chart that I put together to show which ones are needed.

Richard,

How did you get your boot carpet looking so good?!! I’ve purchased a deluxe boot carpet from “hopping crossing” Nr Melbourne Australia and it looks ok!! But definitely not as good as yours!!

That's "Hoppers Crossing" and no, I've got no idea as to the origin of that name

Hugh,
If you use automotive carpet it has a certain amount of give so that you can stretch and fit it over curved sections like the wheel arches without it rucking up. Also you need to use a heavy duty adhesive which you should be able to get from the same suppliers as the carpet.

It sure does have a certain amount of give in it, the automotive carpet. However, unfortunately if does not have enough to cover the rear deck panel.

Four way stretch carpet, the type often used in vans should do.
