After 12 or 13 hours of driving in 30 hours, I took some time on Sunday to slap on the wheel center caps and install the new arm rest rubber bumper. Turns out the rubber bumper install is very much like the PC case fan mounting hardware used by Noctua (a prestige German manufacturer of fans, heat sinks, etc). Instead of a traditional fan screw, they ship with these:
and you run them through the same direction the screw would go, but then you've got to yank on the narrow end, deforming the various changes in width along the way. Once it's flush, you release the narrow end and it's quite secure.

Same procedure applies to the arm rest bumper. This means you've got to undo six rather short screws on the underside of the arm rest and separate the two halves of the arm rest in order to follow a very similar procedure to the above. Interesting.

With the center caps, I've eliminated all of the external bow ties. The only remaining physical bow tie is the airbag, so that might be next, but I'd also like to do a HomeLink install in order to git rid of the visor clip unit.

Whatever's next, the road trip was wonderful and I'm glad to be knocking out these tasks at a fair pace. =)
