Lightbulb DIY Dinoc Carbon fiber shifter plate

ive gotten my hands on some 3M Dinoc Simulated carbon fibre vinyl. for those of you that have used this before, you know how great of a material this is. looks amazing and really easy to work with.

my shifter plate has been peeling and looking ugly so i figured i would cover it up!

this is super easy to do, only tool you will need is a butter knife to pry up the plate. heres how it goes:

Once pried up you will need to disconnect 3 harnesses, 2 on the left and 1 on the right

you will then need to unclip the leather boot from the plate, there are a few clips

once unclipped you can separate the boot from the plate

lift the plate and manoeuvre it around the boot and shifter

once freed up you will want to clean the surface, try to use something without ammonia. if your plate is peeling like mine, you can try to remove as much damaged material as you like. though the carbon fibre material will mask any uneven spots
