Re: Eyeconic's Impulse/Piazza project

Decided to continue with on with the theme of freshening-up the interior with some modern touches. This time I focused on the centre hand brake cover and centre console. They were removed, the faux texture was then sanded down and smoothed out, spray painted with a metallic dark grey, and sealed wit...

Re: Eyeconic's Impulse/Piazza project

Next up. Change over the crappy SAAS steering wheel. DE6EA8D1-D355-440D-A339-9D670AC4DD70.jpeg Changing the wheel wasn’t straight forward because the boss kit needed to be changed too. Finding a Momo boss kit for a Piazza proved a challenge because they stopped producing them years ago. Doing some d...

Re: Eyeconic's Impulse/Piazza project

Next on the ‘to do’ list is fix the saggy sorry-looking mesh storage compartments behind the front seats. It’s obvious the offending elastic cords are perished and need to be replaced. 509FB3CF-1F76-4153-9347-994297FE713F.jpeg Easier said than done because the rear cover panels have to to be removed...

Re: Eyeconic's Impulse/Piazza project

Installed the new headliner today, along with the same velour-covered trims for that premium look and feel. Headliner and trims were done by pro motor trimmer in my local area. I contemplated doing the work myself, but I’m glad I didn’t. Next job is redoing the sun visors, but in this case I’m prett...

More before and after pics of the LED conversion. This time it’s the interior 31mm festoon bulbs, which covers the door cards, centre dome light, and boot.

Re: Eyeconic's Impulse/Piazza project

Moving onto LEDs now, and I’m navigating my way through replacing the standard incandescent interior lighting and rear number plate lights to LED. So far the number plate T10 LEDs that I replaced kept blowing my 15A fuse in about 3seconds flat. Has me stumped why, but I’ll try another set from anoth...

Re: Eyeconic's Impulse/Piazza project

Removed the headliner the other day. What a mess. 1F23180B-029A-4CE6-805E-C1BCC09C6068.jpeg 15C6B457-5AD5-4E84-BED8-7B803BB2A448.jpeg The headliner and surrounding trims will be given the same dark grey velour treatment. I expect to pick them up off the auto trimmer this week. More pics to follow wh...

Re: Eyeconic's Impulse/Piazza project

Hey guys, about time for an update eh! The popularity of Facebook has put a real dampener on activity on this forum. But I’m still here and there’s no better place to showcase your work-in-progress, mods, and rides etc than a forum like this. Don’t get me wrong, I like what Facebook brings to the ta...

Depends if you are planning on upgrading or already have 17 inch or 20 inch rims. But regardless of this you’ll still run into a slight problem with your speedo calibration as the extensa HP’s lowest profile on offer 225/45 R17 will have an overall diameter of 635mm. The Piazza standard diameter...
