Loved this video! So well narrated. You showed each action perfectly and in sync with the instructions.I know personally this is a popular topic but with little information available (at least I couldn't find any) so I'm hoping to contribute to the community.
This is the Alcantara wrapped console I bought from Overland Designs:
• I'm NOT an expert and used the best tools I had available to me. Take your time and be patient to avoid any broken clips.
• Also make sure to protect the rest of your interior from getting scratched.
• I'm open to suggestions regarding this process so feel free to chime in.
• I believe the process should be similar to all manual Integras from 2023-onwards.
• Phillips screwdriver
• Prying tool
• 15mm wrench (i think 14mm might be the exact size but 15mm worked for me)
• Tiny screwdriver (for poking that small plastic clip)
• A lot of patience
Unfortunately, I do not.Any instructions or ideas on how to remove the trim panel to the right of the center console (the one below the colored leather trim)? I'm looking to pop off that piece so that I can drill some holes to mount a RAM Mount AMPS ball base plate so that I can use a RAM X-grip for my phone (I feel like adhesive won't hold up well long term)
That area hardly gets touched unless you like placing object on top of it for some reason. No wear or tear to report.Curious for those that have had the Alcantara wrapped console for a while now, if it has started to get some smoother wear spots? my only hold out now for getting it is long term durability.
Mine had the titanium knob installed by my dealer and I did have to apply considerable force to loosen it but luckily it wasn't as difficult as your experienceyo so i installed mine today, and that nut under the shift knob was totally fucked on mine. in your video you loosened it with a 15mm wrench then just unscrewed it with your fingers but mine was totally jammed up. i loosened it no problem but it was impossible to take off with fingers and i had to wrench it off the entire way, and it tore up the threads on the shift lever.
i was thinking they must have put thread locker on it for whatever reason as i was getting it off, but i didn't see any compound on the threading. it didn't look like it had been cross-threaded either so i don't know what the problem was.
it went back on much easier than it went off, but still required being wrenched the entire way, and then the shift knob (which unscrewed just fine with fingers) was a pain to screw on. it seriously killed my damn hand and forearm getting it back on lol.
it was so horrible. i kept re-watching that part of your video over and over and over again trying to figure out how you were able to take it off with your fingers.Mine had the titanium knob installed by my dealer and I did have to apply considerable force to loosen it but luckily it wasn't as difficult as your experience
hmm, I have some vinyl and a heat gun, I should give this a try, I also want to do this in my 350Z interior.I wrapped mine today with some VViViD Square Black carbon fiber wrap. Also used the opportunity to swap on my Si shifter. The ITS one is nice but I got used to grabbing the whole shift knob and it just didn't feel right
