AoA everyone...hope you're all fine..
well, my exams ended around mid december and since then im working day in day out on my car. Did a lot to restore it to the best possible condition. It is now 5 years and 215,000kms old car so it definately needs a good amount of care to keep it healthy. Recently changed the suspension etc n a lot more (posted in city fan club).
Update :- Today i compound polished the painted panels and now they are even more shiny and smooth. Thanks to @Vague_one for the advice and @Suzukialtomehran for lending me the compound polish
Now, the only part of interior that didnt look good were the silver panels on the central console and all 4 doors. Painted the door panels 2-3 days ago, but thats an easy job (opening n fitting back) so i wont be posting its pictures. Opening the console is a little bit harder then that plus one of our respected member in the city fan club (@rollaonbigmama) requested a detailed demonstration of opening the console... so here it is...
(I started this process at 10.30pm and fitted back all the stuff after paint etc at around 2am, thats 3.5hrs)
Start opening from the back end, open this screw, another one on the other side. After it, just pull this console upwards, there are two clips at the front end of it (where it meets the gear lever part) it simply comes off
This is what is revealed (please ignore the dust car is going for general service soon)
This round clip is to be taken off next. to unlock it, put a screw driver in the middle small round spot and push down. it will unlock giving a TIK sound.take it out then
Forgot to take pic here. next u have to unbolt the gear knob (unscrew counter clockwise) after its taken off, just pull the silver panel around the gear lever up... its fixed with clips, no screws. Then u ll see these two screws
Forgot to take the next pic again well, just take the ask try out and there is one nut behind it, unscrew it, pull the whole thing out, unplug the cigrette lighter and this is what u see, more nuts n bolts
