New Toys!

Yaay now there is work to do.

Today I got the leather dash trim installed, which included a new center AC vent unit, since some of my blades were scratched... not anymore! Pics on that tomorrow. For the install I saturated the inside clip points with black automotive silicone as is my custom for plastic pieces on the car, part of my zero tolerance for interior noise policy. Actually its great, sounds like a well tuned bongo over expansion joints, and it's an 07 with 60k. Also I accomplished my cup holder delete project, pics tomorrow... I removed the passenger cupholder panel, laminated it with a cut to fit piece of solid vinyl (like vinyl siding material on a house), and then wrapped the assembly with leather that matches the dash unit, so it's just one solid piece across with no plastic. (trust me, it's magnificent, I'll show you tomorrow). Spent all day being a slave to my car and it feels pretty good.
