    I'm now looking to get the stitching redone to silver on mine to match the gearshift/handbrake and hopefully soon knee pads LOL. Dunno if it would be cheaper to get a new wheel or have mine re-done. Thing is, I dont like the perforated finish & they seem more common.

    Nice work, I need to get my card tray wired up so it also lights up in the dark. You could have cut the side down on your single din using a dremmel and a stencil of double din faceplate but seems you found a better way and pretty cheap at £15 as well mate!
