Some of the stuff should be available through many motor accessory shops.

I would be careful about replacing the steering wheel though. Don't forget that the driver's airbag is situated in there. Don't know of many aftermarket steering wheels that have airbags fitted.

JLD is right you are best having the steering wheel re covered I made some enquiries the other day and it is possible if you take it to an automotive trimmer.

Rather than removing the centre console - have a look on Findlay's thread about mod pics for the ZR (I think it is called Mod Pics in the ZR/25 forum) and see what he has done with his centre console. It looks good with the chrome trim IMO and can be done quite cheaply too without having to go through removing the centre console (which I've heard can be quite a chore!)

If you want different colour gaiter for the gearstick you will have to remove the center console there is no other way of doing it . I have done a how to do it list which I sent to Findlay . If you want it let me know.

I can't claim to be the originator of the gear surround idea as that was from one of our NMGO crew. But I know a few people who have carried out this simplest of mods and been impressed. Indeed, pics of my gear surround are on the very same thread you mention nn-y.

As for removal of the central console, I think I'm gonna give that a whirl this weekend. ScWe - I've ordered the bits from Demon Tweeks plus also got the blue-tint window kit pre-cut to 5dr Rover 25. Also I'm this close to making a decision about all round undercar neons.
