Took mine into a random dealership next to I-95 a couple days ago for a new fuel pump. If you're putting off the recall work like I did... don't. :)

Was the start button panel easy to replace if you have it? Aaron is going to send me a vid but just curious, red of course. Red window visors coming too, anything tricky about them?

this piece?

been a while so i dont really remember exactly but i dont think it was too bad. Just depends on how much your willing to remove to make your life easier lol. I've torn my interior apart so everything is pretty simple to me now.

the correct way would be to pop off the gauge cluster trim piece to give space because the tabs runs under it, and slide back the center console because iirc there are slots on there that the center console slides into
but you can kinda work around it.

once you remove everything to get to the piece (shifter wing trim, climate control panel, headunit, faux carbon to the left of it, driver side under panel) you can see what else you need to do.

as far as the sun visors, that may be tricky your first time around.
move the sun visor to the side and you'll see this hole on the base with a tab showing. its kinda facing the windshield so its kind of a pain to look.

from that hole you will see these white tabs

Grab w/e tool you want to use (i used a right angle pick), push in the plastic white tab in and push it to the left (to the left looking at the hole so clockwise) iirc. if you manage to push the tab past the hole on the black base it will drop down. Just undo the elec connector after and its out.

Awesome help, thanks. I thought both would be simpler but worth it.

@boosted180sx Better yet... Ask sweidit to make you some alcantara pants to match the theme. Black with red stitching... And maybe a red crotch region. :headbang::flame:
I need an alcantara wallet haha.

Let me know if you need any help removing the interior. I’ve taken apart everything so I know what to do.
I think he's working on a full dash right now 😂
Yeah he finished it. It’s actually for my friend and it’s currently at my house. We are installing it next week.

dash and headliner is definitely on my list to do next. They look amazing.
