Have you had the upper bezel off? I still want to pull mine off and paint it.nope, the knobs stay intact. Check out my install pics: Fiesta Modifications - a set on Flickr
I have had the trim around the shifter off 3 times since these pics were taken. Always trying new things with the car, concerning the 3M wrap. The first attempt did not work out so well, so it has been redone since the pics.
Very cool, I like what you've done with the 3M Carbon-fiber film. Did you use any tools in removing the shifter bezel or did you just pull up gently at the bottom above the sync emblem and work your way from there?
