Thanks for the tips, I think I'm going with the DYI brake line option. Gives me something fun to do. Good tip on heating it to mould the tube.
Once the weather stops being crap I'll start playing around 8-)

Recently bought a few small storage pockets off eBay. They are from china and stick on with 3m double sided tape. So far have held up well and only cost about $5 delivered.

So far 2 inside the center console. Keeps things from rattling about too much, mainly using it for wallet and work phone (when not in use).

Not sure what I will do with the others.

These are the ones I bought, but there are larger ones which would probably be better.

A couple of other mods I've done, slightly more than $50 but still worth a mention ...

Rear demister and rear wiper/washer for canopy rear window. Can post photos and details if anyone is interested.

Maybe we need a new thread "Slightly more expensive budget mods" ? :lol:
Cheers,
Scuba Dooba
