Cancelled and ordered the bigger roll, even if it is too big I wouldn't mind doing my laptop so I'll stick with the bigger roll, it's only £7 at the end of the day.

Looking forward to getting started on this!

Best tip is to take your time and keep the wrap warm, much easier to work it when it's soft.

Was actually going to say you could do your laptop lol. It comes rolled up in a heavy duty tube, just cut pieces off as you need it with scissors then roll it back up. Like you said it's only 7quid and you was gonna pay that for a lot smaller sheet, by getting this one your getting a lot more for your money.

Clive just gave you a good tip there too about keeping it warm.

I'll definitely post up some pictures when I get it done, might not be for a couple of weeks (off to germany on sunday) but I'll do my best.

Thanks for all the help! :D

I'll give it a shot wrapping something myself and see how it goes, if I'm useless at it then I might take you up on that offer.

Well that's halfway done :)

Now to do the ashtray and gear surround, but I can't seem to figure out how to remove them.
Can anyone give me some pointers as to the easiest way to get them out?

Great first attempt at the wrapping there mate.

Like I'be said before, get a screwdriver under the corners of the gear stick surround and it just pops up.

Thanks, didn't take me too long but I got the hang of it pretty quickly.

I've removed the gear surround already,I meant the greyish trim surrounds that and the cup holders up to the centre arm rest. Or is that the same solution, screwdriver under the trim?

And what about that ashtray/storage thing? I can't seem to find any screws holding it in place?

The ashtray just clips into place under the demister panel and the gear surround on a 2.5 is glued to the upper console piece.
To remove the ashtray unit you'll need to remove the whole upper console piece.
On a mk2 you'd only need to unclip both parts of the gear surround.
I think for your model it's 4 screws at the rear and 2 bolts at the front and the footwell side panels need to come off too but they are one screw each under pop off covers.
Sorry it's more involved than on a mk2.

:D
Like I said the 2.5 has a different design centre console.
I believe the lower piece is glued to the panel so is more tricky to remove.
I think you can seperate it but will need to re glue it afterwards.

Well I finally got them out with a bit of brute force and ignorance.

Could be a bit tricky to wrap the gear stick surround considering I can't really separate the part I want to wrap from the rest of the trim...
