    taken me 2 hours - nightmare job

    lol
    changed over my centre console today to a gunmetal grey one, looks fantastic now, but geez wut a nightmare.

    lost a couple of torx screws down into the floor, good luck in finding them i say, hopefully wont roll into gear linkage and stop it getting into gear, we shall see lol. also lost a torx bit down in the floor as well which has hindered process as had to go buy some new torx bits ops:

    however, its all in and looks fantastic, just gotta wait for the final bit to arrive in at vauxhall to finish it all off, and then ill put some pics up.

    modding has well n truly begun.

    I dropped a torx screw when trying to remove the radio cage, had to strip everything out to get to it, everytime I went round a corner I could hear it rolling under the dash, got it out in the end with a magnet and torch. THANK GOD!

    Had a nightmare with the ash tray earlier, gave it a bit of a tug after undoing the torx screws and pulled it to pieces

    problem is I didn't see how it came appart, and the inevitable spring fell out :roll:

    Took me half an hour trying to work out how it all goes together, its more intricate than you think
