Update:
I sprayed the interior. Its far from a professional job but it does the trick. I realise the colour choice is unusual but at least you will see it coming!
I have never spray painted before, so this was all a learning curve. I learned that I should have removed the windows first, that I should be more careful around the edges and mainly that I will never be a professional sprayer. But its done now, and its does the job of removing all those different shades of the blue interior.

What did you use to spray it. Think of the money you saved and good on you for doing it yourself

Just some cheap tins from ebay (then autocare when I ran out). Its not great when you see it close up, but it does the job. Not sure about the resale value though Very Happy

By charger, I assume you mean alternator? If so yes, I only have the standard one. The battery I am getting is an ODYSSEY (PC680 PVR25).
