hey guys i want to put red leather on my console lid and I'm not sure how to do it?

i have taken a pic ok it apart the foam is there with the base and the other part is the vinyl so how would u suggest i do it? just over the foam? or over the vinyl?

PS don't mind the kick panels there going red also :w00t:

if you do it over the vinyl then it might not fit back on the plastic under the lid, not really sure how it holds the vinyl in there in the first place. would want to test it before putting it on for good

yeah i gave up on the dam thing lol to hard and i dont think it will look that good, so its goin to a motor trimmer today so 40 bucks and he will put the leather on put thicker foam in and use black stiching so its pretty cheap and will look really good

I reckon that's good value. As I have fitted the Calais leather interior, the console lid should be leather too. Time to check out the local motor trimmer I think.
