    Welcome @Peter Martin!

    There are a few nearby, but I've just noticed our Member Map isn't working which is where I normally point people to...

    Shout if you have any questions.

    Hi Peter , apart from the usual suspects ie eBay etc.you could check out suppliers of carbon print sheets and the like. I brought back some window vinyl from Miami last spring because the cost was very low inc free p&p. to our villa. Going again soon so check out eBay .com and see if you can find anything. Obviously you will need to strip your centre console to apply the sheet but it could be very cost effective way of doing it.
    Cheers, Tony.:)

    My missus asked me once if I could do 'it' twice. I said, "Yes, but it would have to be with someone else."

    :inpain: That Arnica stuff is really good isn't it!

    Welcome to the madhouse, Peter, glad you've found us!!

    Be careful with Ebay, we bought an machined aluminium facia kit for the centre console, it lined up perfectly in your hand, but the fixing holes wouldn't, when presented on the car. As an alternative, we sprayed the original facia with actual body colour, twice in fact and topped in up with lacquer, it was amazingly durable and very much admired.

    Hi Peter from the other side of the pond. Glad to have you with us. You'll find this forum a great place for many reasons: info on your car, what are the best parts, where to get them, mechanical expertise (usually) and a great bunch of guys (and gals) to banter with if desired. A lot of fun to be had. We're all glad to help out with any questions about the car or whatever. Frankie
