Alcantara - How To Video
 
So, yes I'm still at it:lol:.

Another step closer to completing the interior, so today it is the C pillars and I decided to do a quick (and rough) video guide, to how I do it. Apologies for it being in so many parts, but I'm no film maker:p.

Hope it helps.










I'll post installed pics later, as I prefer to leave the piece indoors for a good few hours, if not overnight, to settle.

Some previous pics;

This is where the wooden tools come in handy. Here you can see the recess that the seat belt runner slides into.

Cheers bro! :D

It's really easy to do. Yeah if you do make any mistakes, you can peel the fabric back and start again.

I've found that White spirit has been the best thing for removing the adhesive. So worst case scenario, if you get some seepage, let it dry and then gently clean off with a rag soaked in white spirit

Yeah you'll spend more time removing whatever pieces you want to cover than actually wrapping them. It is really straightforward and makes such a big difference:D
