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
sounds great, we 05+ owners appreciate this lol
