    Changed centre console - with pics

    Hi,
    Bought silver console from Ebay this week and decided to fit it this afternoon.... Not as hard as I thought it would be and very satisfying .

    P.s If anyone has a cigarette surround or traction control panel in the standard gunmetal grey can you let us know.

    Before:



    After:



    Thanks Guys

    Ok,
    May have spoken too soon.......

    Everytime I put the handbrake down the gaitor comes out from the back of the handbrake...... I know the original had staples but surely a normal stapler is not going to go through the leather and plastic?

    Any ideas how to stop this from happening?

    Thanks

    There is a guide in the suggestions/FAQ forum.

    As for the gaiter, you would really struggle to staple it. I couldn't do it with a massive heavy duty one. So a normal stapler would have no chance. I used a bit of super glue in the end just to hold it on, works a treat.
