    Smooth Shifter Center Console

    Hey y誕ll!

    I知 attempting to do the E46 Armrest/Cupholder Retrofit. I noticed people always complained of the different texture in surfaces. I was wondering whether anyone has gone the route I知 about to try. Originally I was going to putty fill the leather texture away to be smooth, filler prime, and satin black both the surface of the shifter console and the brake console from the E46, so they値l match.

    While I was sanding to add grip, I figured why not sand it all down since there seems to be enough material to where it値l be level and smooth. I guess worst come to worst I buy a new console. There痴 a couple spots on my console where the wrap is slightly peeling and the foam underneath is split but I was going to fix/reinforce it with some fiberglass resin.

    Let me know if I知 in over my head lol

    I値l post some photos later when I知 done wet sanding it down
