When we inherited our CRX, it was sporting an interior wrapped in gray tweed. Fashion faux pas nowadays, but this car was built years ago. In the process of de-ricing the Wunderdog, we had to remove all of the tweed. Not sure if we’d be able to find another center console, we ripped off the tweed and found a great solution for removing the stuck-on adhesive.

TOOLS AND MATERIALS NEEDED: 3M adhesive and wax remover and lots of rags.
