    Chrome Heater Rings... What A Fart On!!

    couldn't get the centre console out on the coupe and that black adhesive sticks like **** and is more like tar!!!

    Also the slightest nock on the centre console and it takes the gun metal colour off!!!

    Centre console takes 4x torx screws to et out, I think its in the how to's, quite a simple task, and that glue is awesome.... just hold it on with a bit of masking tape till it goes off... although a lot of ppl here have used blue tack i believe!
    I'm after another Coupe Turbo

    Yep i just stuck them on the front. You get a little babywhipe with the rings. As soon as you apply the tar stuff and put the rings on, whipe them clean.

    your meant to wipe the area they will be sticking to to remove all dirt which may prevent adhesion. then you can wipe the rings clean.

    I know, I just meant whipe it of as soon as you get it on the rings so it doesnt have time ot harden as its hard enough while its wet.
