Even more Alcantara!
 
Yup, I've been at it again:D

Ordered up another roll, so it's back to work.

Today class, it's the B pillars

These were a pain to remove. You'll need a T50 torx to remove the seatbelt. The seatbelt adjuster is removed by pulling it towards you carefully. After that the whole thing unclips, eventually! It is on pretty tight and you have to be very careful not to break the clips. I broke one of the plastic guide pins, but no biggy as they don't really do anything.

Next remove the adjuster rail by sliding it out of the pillar...

I marked the top end with some masking tape, so I know which way it goes back.

Time to start wrapping...

Heat can be used for some of the more complex parts. I fought with some wrinkling at the top for a while. Took a hairdrier to it and managed to smooth it all out. Heat does make a small difference, so I would reccomend it. But obviously don't use a heat gun.

The headling is desperately needing done now, as it will look so much better. The rolls I've been getting aren't wide enough for that, so for now I'll get to work on door cards, dash, remaining pillars. I really want to do the floor console as well. Going to have a dry run with that tomorrow and see how it goes.

Thanks for listening

Cheers Paul. It really does make a difference. I can't wait to get the headliner done, cause that will really set it off.:D

Thanks Mario:thumbsup: The dash is definitely being considered. But the more I look at it, the more I know the headlining must be done. The headlining looks like fuzzy felt next to the alcanatara lol. I want to take a look at doing the floor console, as I think that could look pretty cool, cause it will flow from the carpet, which is almost the same colour.

I'm planning on doing the top section of the steering wheel too, so I'll need to get my needle and thread out.
