very simple thing to do, remove your trims, spray with 3m adhesive and wrap. (like gift wrapping) you're done.

it's very simple, apply the vinyl, work with your fingers, credit card or vinyl applicator to get bubbles out, cut edges with sharp razor blade and tuck them behind the trim. I imagine that using a heat gun can help with sharp corners, but I didn't use one, just try to do it on very hot day because vinyl will stretch easier.

the dash trim seems pretty easy but im more concerned with the gear shifter and armrest? will the vinyl not crease or overlap on a round surface?
