      I finally got it done

      New attempt and failure through victory. More than 100 hours of work. Zap installed in place.
      The coating of the frame has yet to be chosen. I also coat other wood surfaces.

      There is Individual package piano black wood pieces on Ebay that would work well with that bottom choice. Save you from having to wrap or paint.

      Black piano wood is definitely fine. I have to look at what I can find on ebay. Parts can be expensive when all wood parts need to be replaced. The first picture is real. The other is done with Photoshop. Vinyl wrapping is easy to make. I have previously made the whole car interior with vinyl wrap. Painting is not an option. I thought of using black brushed aluminum and light brushed aluminum to coat the wood parts. They look very authentic.

      Ok, thanks Josh
      I didn't find it myself. But there are only door molding trims. There are quite a lot of wooden parts. I think I'll try vinyl wraps first.

      That is only one link. There are a lot of other piano parts. Shoot the seller an email and ask to buy them all at the same time.

      I did that when I ordered all the wood from Germany off Ebay to swap my euk over to walnut.

      Thanks for the advice Josh
      I can contact the sellers. Maybe I'll find all the pieces.
      Is there any idea if the Bentley Flying Spur 2014-2019 seats wiring diagram could be obtained from somewhere?

      Not that I am aware of. Bentley (and other high end cars) like to keep info to themselves...as if most of the buyers would work on their cars anyway.

      I think it's more a matter of supply and demand.

      Chilton and Hayne's aren't going to print a manual for the 100 non-mechanics worldwide who might want wiring diagrams.

      You could try Erwin:

      https://erwinusa.bentleymotors.com/erwin/showHome.do

      https://erwinusa.bentleymotors.com/e...ticleId=172759

      There are also tons of online results but I don't know how safe they are.

      These guys don't have the Flying Spur but do have an updated Phaeton manual. As with the others out there, I have no idea if they are legitimate and it it's safe to download from them.

      Here's the VW manual package:

      https://www.emanualonline.com/Specia...G-Package.html

      Or just the Phaeton:

      Hi Jussi.
      I must say you are remarkable. The work you done and do on your P is really fantastic.
      Very impressive. It looks good and with high quality, you are very talented.

      I have been wanting to add video to the ZAP for a couple of years now on my P, and you are an inspiration.

      Seeing your pictures makes me want to drive my P down to my workshop and rip it apart, right away.

      Thank you very much for appreciating my work. I'm glad for that.
      Now I have a mission impossible. I’m building from one of the Bentley seat and one of the Phaeton seat one newone that fit in the Phaeton.
      The seats for the new Bentley Flying Spur was so different, it in no way fit my car. It is such a difficult project now that I do not know if it is possible.
      I have posted two pic to VWworteks. They are in another tread. I'll post more pictures later. I have to say that Phaeton's seat is better built.
      They are also harder to disassemble. And while they're almost from the new Bentley Flying Spur, Phaeton sests are little more comfortable.
      But Bentley seats looks wonderful.

      Bentley ZAB unit? Is there any functional difference? FWIW the stereo in my Phaeton is FAR superior to the one in my Bentley, for whatever reason.

      Jussi I could swear I saw your name over there before but if you haven't been there, the Bentley forum is pretty active and helpful and may be able to give you additional Bentley info:

      I have been able to visit Bentley forum. It may have taken a long time. I can't remember. I should visit there too.
      I haven’t listened to Bentley’s audio system, but in Phaeton it’s extremely good.
      I think it’s sometimes chosen as the world’s best car as standard. The previous best was in Lexus.
      It was made by Mark Levison. Mark Levison is not recognized by many, but it is a U.S. manufacturer of High End audio equipment.
      The equipment is highly valued and expensive.
      Bentley and Phaeton ZAP is almost the same. Buttons are different order and something little different.
      However, they are not compatible with each other.
      I have made almost all of that ZAP's front panel completely myself.
      You can find the pictures and story in the other thread I started on the Phaeton forum.

      About the Bentley seat to Phaeton with pictures continues with the other thread "VOL 2"

      The seat project for a short break
      I did a little wrapping with new 3M wrap film series 2080. Black brushed aluminium and light brushed aluminium. I do all wood panel with these colours. Not everyone probably agrees with me that it’s a good idea to cover wooden surfaces.
      However, I will do it because my car will look like newer now. I also think it’s stylish.

      From what I can see, I like that black metal edged wrap.

      I probably would have done the cupholders block myself so they did not stand out. Or maybe just silver around the rim.

      The picture shows poorly that light brushed aluminum.
      In nature, it looks better. I also have chrome rings.
      I might replace them, They may be more stylish than those aluminum ones.
      You will get a better result until all the parts are done with those colors.

      Thanks for the tip

      Maybe I’ll change the color of the cup holder to black and only rings light aluminium.

      It is easy job-

      Yea- that looks great.

      Is it hard to do?


      I have soooo much stuff around the house I can think of to wrap.

      3 M wrap film serie 2080 or 1080 it is easier
      I've done wrapping with other wrap and it is more difficult.

      Cover slightly but do not completely disappear from view.
