its all cool, i'm working on this as we speak. the problem w/ these small shapes is the small sharp corners. carbon fiber skinned items aren't easy but are doable on almost ANY circumstance. just takes teh tools. this one (unlike the 00-04 w/ the cigarette lighter delete) has that sharp corner. vacuum bagging actually DOES NOT work on this. so i need a press that will fit the corners. once i have one made which is what i am doing, they will be just as simple to do. but as of now, its not. I can push it in w/ my fingers manually, however, the weave will start to collapse on itself and won't look smooth. this is the dilemma. once done, there will be a group buy if Tom will let me. but i'm not gonna sell (excuse the expression) some half-ass'd job. if i wouldn't put it in my own car, guess what, i'm not gonna sell it. so i'm working on it. and will let you know when its ready
