I'm really interested in tackling the interior the way you did with the Alcantara, probably not all of the pieces you did, but I'd like to start with the trim around the shifter and cup holders. Any advice? I haven't read every single post in this thread but I recall you saying that you've taken apart tons of interiors before, so I'm sure that helped.
Thanks man,

The center console is a good place to start. Many members have asked about the shifter surround and it's really easy if you have a steamer. Doing any Alcantara work without one is a pain in the a$$. If you use contact cement (which I recommend over spray can) remember to cover both sides (plastic part and back side of Alcantara), wait a couple minutes, than start to cover the piece. Use the steamer on tight corners and trim the edges when done.
I have a video a couple pages back on using the steamer on the dash. It's simple once you get started, you'll see.

Good luck!!
