1. Cut the fabric to the size of the trims...(make sure the wave direction are all go same way before you cut, and make sure you leave about 1" longer on all sides of the trims.

would you recommend doing this on the wood grain trim? I am wondering if it would mess up the wood when I take it off

Here is how it look like after the old fabric peel off


after 2 mins of rubbing with alcohol


After 10 mins of rubbing with alcohol. So for those who affraid of doing this becasue of lease car, it is reversable!!

Just a heads up to anyone planning to do this mod...i did mine last weekend with matte titanium fabric from PYSpeed. I used the 3M 90 spray adhesive rather than the 77 due to the high heat we see in NC. The 3M 90 spray does NOT spray a consistent smooth pattern like the 77 as shown in these pics. it shoots more like globs and a stringy type pattern. it took me alot of time to get it as smooth as possible, and i wasnt successful in all areas. i have small bumps in two of my pieces that i am just going to have to life with.

If anyone has any idea how i can get these parts smooth other than rip it off and start over, i would be much appreciative.

thanks

the reason why you have bubbles is because you sprayed too much. take it off and clean it GOOD with rubbing alcohol, make sure all of the adhesive you sprayed is off. Goo gone helps take it off as well. Spray just a little bit, then when it bubbles go over the layer with your finger to make it smooth, make sure you don't spray that much. I'll have pics in a bit of mine. Hope that helps.

i dont think i sprayed too much at all. maybe i got a defecfive can or something. i was expecting the 3M to spray like spray paint and when i used the 3M 90 spray, that was far from the case. soem of the bumps have disappeared as teh fabric has been exposed to heat over 100 degrees here, but im definitely taking off at least one piece to redo.

i also need to fix my ashtray cover. the fabric from pyspeed seems alot thicker than some others and my ashtray doesnt open and close properly anymore. i have read that i can just add a few washers to the screws and it should work better.

I'm curious how it will go. Let us know if it's possible to take the fabric completely off a trim piece and reuse it again, without it getting ruined. I'm in the same boat, as there's quite a few bubbles in mine, mostly along the edges though which are peeling.

The washers will work for sure, I had an issue with the rear ashtray's lid rubbing, and a couple of washers in the bottom screws IIRC did the trick. I don't think I added washers to all 4 screws.

Nice work
Is a 122cm x 200cm piece enough for a E93 no idrive trim?

Thanks for the info

Is there any DIYS showing how to actually take off the trim? I've looked around, but can only locate a few parts and pieces shown being taken off.
