So I'll do a full write up with pictures when I can for the power outlets but I wanted to give an explanation of what I did if anyone else wants to do the same.

I bought a 12v outlet panel from eBay, there are lots to choose from the only difference is how big a panel you want, how many outlets you want and what type.

I also bought some switches (3 prong type) and there are many designs so it's down to personal preference.

I didn't want the hassle of doing the centre console
Removal Cornishbaz did as I don't have the skill or patience and would probably break lots of clips doing it so I ran a simple positive and negative direct from the battery in the boot. The switches have 3 prongs (positive, negative and a powered) negative from switch to negative on battery, positive to positive on battery, powered to the outlet you want to power.

On the outlets which are 2 prong negative to any good ground and positive to the switch.

I cut a template into the carpet panel just smaller than each outlet and squeezed them into the respective holes and connected it all up.

Just remember it's on a constant live so do remember to switch off when you leave the car.

I didn't say I bought a new shark fin aerial, I removed it and wrapped it in white vinyl, I as simply giving you the chance to see the serial number once removed so if you want to write it down that's your choice, it pays to read the post properly!

Greedy job jt123, can you move the pics to your outdoors thread shoo its easier to track what each member has done to their own car.
