A few things I’ve done over the years:

  • Making a dip stick from some brass rod for my DS tower.
  • Drilling out the rivets and replacing with rivnuts to make a removeable scuttle.
  • Replacing the horn with something that can actually make a good, loud noise.
  • Cargo net pocket and tunnel bag or cockpit storage.
  • Club watch so I don’t need to worry about something on the dash Blah
  • Fire extinguisher in passenger footwell.
  • Longer wheel studs 
  • Race brake reservoir cap to reduce leakage from the valve. 
  • Tyre foam secure to the chassis rails in the boot.
  • cutting Ali honeycomb in half in the boot to male it easier to remove the boot floor.
  • Wrapped the exhaust primaries.

TomB — replacing the horn, was that just a simple 'buy a different one and fit it' job? I have been contemplating getting rid of Noddy for something a little better.

Yes - These copy Hella horns, much louder and better sounds. I used the same brackets as the CC ones, the only gotcha is needing a wired Earth as they don’t Earth through the plastic body.

It's sometimes necessary to fit another relay for aftermarket horns.

And there are many more horns in the archives:
