Was unsure about silver on tan but after looking at countless C70's on ebayUK with that combo I pulled the trigger. Still getting used to it but I like. "R" trim leather wrapper e-brake handle and shift knob installed as well.<br><IMG SRC="http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g186/adamjjohn203/CIMG0445.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g186/adamjjohn203/CIMG0443.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g186/adamjjohn203/CIMG0446.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g186/adamjjohn203/CIMG0444.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g186/adamjjohn203/CIMG0440.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g186/adamjjohn203/CIMG0441.jpg" BORDER="0">

As long as it works for you, that's all that matters. <p>From the mods listed in your sig, your ride sounds interesting (& from what I can see, it appears well kept)....Consider posting more pics, so we can see the rest of the car....

Re: Silver trim fully installed (Bearclaw)

Looks great! Since my interior is graphite/tan it's nice to see quality picts of the R trim on tan. <p>The ebrake handle: how did yours remove? I have an aftermarket handle and I couldn't easily remove it.<p>How was it pulling the lower dash?

Re: Silver trim fully installed ([email protected])

Didn't have to pull the lower dash....pulled the glove box liner for more access to the torx screws. The hardest one to start was the top right, I actually taped the screw to my T25 "L" wrench to get it in there. About 2 hours start to finish, I also installed a new console cause mine was cracked at the back. The e-brake handle grip slides off the metal handle. I just pulled the rubber part and it slid off.

Re: Silver trim fully installed (adamjjohn203)

I've never attempted a radio trim swap, but have always heard it's a pain<br>and the lower dash needed to come out. Glad to hear that you've bested it!<br>Do you think there's room to pull that center trim with one of these?<p><A HREF="http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=skewdriver&tag=googhydr-20&index=tools&hvadid=2735394595&ref=pd_sl_1m9xabkrhe_e" TARGET="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UT...rhe_e</A><p>Great tool, I love these things!

Not my favorite interior combination but your car is so nice, heck, you could have purple trim and it would look great! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Silver trim fully installed (adamjjohn203)

I'll try coming in from the glove box - I got the two lower Torx off by coming in from the radio hole.<p>

It helps to have a Allen wrench type "L" shaped torx wrench. Nice and short because at the top the vent ducting gets in the way. Also taping the screw to the driver or wrench totally helps!!

Not sure on the part# for the e brake handle danny(dmelvi007 on VS) might know. He's also the person I got the motorsport decal from. That is the smaller one......

Re: (mune237)

Yeah my lip is one of the old CF gemini lips they don't make any longer. I'm just taking my time finishing it up.
