I have just done this modification this afternoon, I cant beleive how easy it actually was,
Start to finish in approx 20 mins for the whole thing completed. The trim removal was a real easy job.
All i did was grab and hold the trim at the leather part of the gear stick, And pull straight up to the roof. In seconds it is clean off with NO damage.
Then quickly removing the 4 hex screws, strip out the ashtray, Remove my aluminum cover as per the above picture and re-assemble.. Its real easy and cost me just over £13.00. I am going to to remove the rear one next, and add the power outles.
Keep up the good work guys, These mod tutorials are really excellent..
