HI all thought i'd put the pic's of my series 2 calais glovebox pad up that i got done... been hunting one for ages n found one at the right price n snapped it up asap!!! lol hope u like there pics i also added a lil "custom" flavour to them since im doing a HDT LE replica i thoguht id add a "by HDT" badge to it just to make it a lil different but also keeping it looking "original" let me know what you think? Very Happy any feedback is appreciated







also got them recessed as the original "CALAIS" badge on them are so had to make them the same... Very Happy very impressed and over the moon with the way the interior is coming along... hopefully helps win some silverware...!!!! lol thats just be the cherry on the top of the cake!!!! Smile guess i can only dream atm...
