Interior renovation in terms of beautification (as my interior looks very simple)
i want to do the following (esp "diy" )
1- internal lights - if possible can we use leds?as present bulbs are not giving enough light.
2- dash board - esp double colored.weather we should paint (if it is durable)? Or use wooden stickers? Please advise me (stickers are not available in the market for maruti 800 (so can we do it "diy"?
3- floor mats - should i change?
4 -steering wheel - should convert it to type 2? Or just change steering cover? Please advise.

I live at Thane.Where exactly in Mulund are you located?

LED's can be bought from any accessory store or from Ebay.

Try the accessory shops new Jain Mandir,Sarvodaya Nagar.

You can change the bulbs yourself.

i am posting some pics of my car
Wow...your car is in excellent condition. I do not want to spoil your mood.
But I will prefer the original setup what comes from the factory. Your car seems to have almost all original components still have. So why spoil a beautiful car for looks only...

As you said...OLD IS GOLD..... [clap]

The car is looking really clean.

I forgot to mention, you can try the teen petrol pump area in thane for the interior as well.

Try to get a quote for the job including the installation at all the shops, check the thickness of the carpet and compare the prices.Make sure you take into account the installation charges
