Washed, claybar and polished it. Will be fitting glove box lid over the w/e.

Next up: sound proofing.

Here's a photo of how far you can go with your sound proofing project.
Good luck

Oh, the roof lining is not in the photo.
For some reason l think this was done by Enjay.

I have done that, and I may have linked to that picture in a post of mine but that car is not mine. I think that particular pic actually comes from a "how-to" on here.

Roof lining as well? The guide didn't mention that. I'd be wary of disturbing the airbags - it's got side curtains, hasn't it?

I didn't do the roof lining and, to be fair, after trialling it for a while, I took out most of the under carpet stuff too. The underlay that I used wasn't particularly thick but I found the way it lifted the shaped carpet of the car slightly made the carpet wrinkle a bit and just not sit as well as it had done previously. However, I did cover quite a lot of my floorpan in those stick-on bitumen-like (not actually bitumen, and they don't smell like bitumen would) sound deadening pads. My car is certainly slightly less noisy and "tinny" than it was before.

This is the stuff I mean: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00 ... UTF8&psc=1

I used them on the floorpan and inside the doors/rear quarter panels. Quite a different IMO.

You will be fine for the airbags, just disconnect the battery for 10 mins prior to reomving any connections or airbags

Just fitted a battery isolator
Image
The hardest thing was removing the nut on the Earth cable, it was seized solid. Now it takes me a second to disconnect the battery, to work on the car.
Only costs 4.50 posted.
If you want one here's a picture with the item from Ebay UK.

By the way if you want to protect your car you can remove the green knob completely and hide it.

That's a cunning idea. The kind of idea that is so cunning that it makes me think that should be a standard piece of equipment on a car.

[edit]
and here's a link to the ebay listing:

There are a few different types if you search for them though.
