A few weeks ago I picked up a front subframe from a TT breakers in Blackburn with a view to getting it refurbished as a project for next year. While looking at various options for corrosion removal and refinishing I came across a website for a company in Preston which is not that far from me.
Ribble Technology use a three stage process of Thermal Pyrolysis, Chemical De-Rust and Electrostatic Korroprime.
The subframe was dropped off and after a couple of weeks it was ready for collection.

Just a small job carried out to the interior during December, the fwd centre console stowage sliding cover was looking a bit worse for wear and I was able to pick up a new replacement part.
In order to replace it requires the removal of the three switches for the petrol cap, interior motion sensor inhibit and boot release, then the complete stowage compartment and cover can be removed allowing the replacement of the cover.
I had previously picked up a second hand set of switches which weren’t perfect but they were still better than mine so these would get replaced at the same time.

Old and new cover.

Reinstalled and now unfortunately showing up the ingrained dirt and grime on the surrounding console, will tackle this later to see if it’s possible to try and achieve a closer match to the newly installed cover.
