if using a smartphone, turn your phone sideways to see missing links, etc

‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’.

Lightbulb Cabin lights.

I love the red cabin lights. Been thinking of doing that most of the night, and now after seeing pics... I think its definite. Any suggestions on which ones to get? I'd like something bright!

Get the led DIE. You only need one bulb for each foot well.

Cool

Just to prove Thomas Tusser was right... I bought the smarttop unit this evening on ebay.

Install videos don't look that difficult, but hoping I don't get any surprises along the way.

Great! Did you get the led die's? A reliable bulb is made by Cree but a bit expensive than the generic ones. It's the same bulb that I have for my cree light bar.
