Exotic Blueberry.....

Alright, so, I don't expect this to be a super busy thread, since im on a rather tight budget, but i will post up mods on here as i get them. Alittle History and background, I bought my car back in late september because i was tired of public transit... (Three hours a day on top of a 12hr shift ) Mods began almost right away with a cellphone mounted to the mirror stud (w/hardwired charger in the headliner)








Then a dashcam after a near-collision on the freeway

(Pics will be added in the next day or two)

Then money got tight (like it does) so mods had to wait..... Finally able to start work again with.... VINYL....




Ill try to keep updating this thread as more mod's happen, but like the perfect blueberry, it takes time to get just that right mix of sweet and sour!

Nice! Are you going to do the rest of the silver as well?

Id like to, but the shifter bezel doesnt want to budge and prying on the corners didnt seem to help at all. Don't suppose you have any ideas?

I've removed mine many times now, though mine's a manual. I imagine it wouldn't be much different. I pulled from the inside edge of the bezel; failing that, I have some trim removal tools that work a treat.

Not too hard, but firmly. The clips were stubborn the first time. Failing that, shoot me a text.

In order to get the shifter bezel off, you have to remove the air controls, then the trim piece under the hand brake and like Twenty said, firm pulls in the corners. I unclipped the bezel from the boot, leaving the boot attached to the shifter, had to put it in neutral for more room. The delicate part was removing the PRNDL from the bezel, patience is need for this. There are very small clips holding it in place.

Since I have a tan interior the "metallic" trim pieces have a golden tint to them which I was not crazy about so, I covered the air vents in black to mach the rest of the top of the dash and the air controls and shifter bezel in carbon fiber. Also did the hand brake and door trim in carbon fiber.
