The shifter/climate control looks perfect! I think most people use a separate piece for the insides of switches and tight spaces.

Good work op! I don't think I would notice that hatch bit but I guess if you're a bit OCD it'll stand out heeps.

taryon does have a point, but since you know that the errors are in there, you'll see them.

Do you have the primer? If you do, put some along those inner edges of the button-hole, heat the vinyl and stretch it in, making sure all of those inner edges are laid flat as you'd like them. Before you make any cuts, give the primer enough time to completely dry. You may need to hold all of the edges flat for a few minutes, so you may want to stuff a rag in there or something to do that work for you.

Once the primer has dried, go ahead and make your cuts (i generally make an X cut), prime and wrap around the back edge.

Thanks for the compliments and suggestions.

I was hoping to not have to use the primer... If something needed to be removed, for whatever reason, will it destroy the surface underneath?

The black coating that is on the these panels is very cheap. We all know how easily it scratches and I've actually had it pull off just with the vinyl's normal adhesive backing.

However, there are some spray paints that match it perfectly when you do decide to go back to stock.

If you don't prime it, your corners will start to lift away eventually.
