Touch Of Elegance2nd November 2019
I’d like to try and add more of a touch of elegance to my Yeti’s interior since changing the gear knob. My Yeti, by the way, is an Ambition Plus.
Skoda has kindly added strips of silver trim here and there, like on the steering wheel, the air vents and around the air conditioning controls and instrument bezels. I want to add more of it and then see what the overall look will be.
A quick search online and I find this piping that I believe might do it…
It arrives fast.
At the same time I also order a roll of this foil tape. I will use for the joins.
Here on Amazon if you want it too.
I’m going to start with the door handle surrounds…
The seller of the plastic trim has provided an applicator 👍
This plastic trim is easy to work with and appears to be of decent quality – no breaking or even cracking.
Let’s snip the end of it and see what is what…
I had a feeling the join would nag away at me 🙄
Let’s break out that silver foil tape…
So what do you think?
I might go over the join again to try and get it as close to undetectable as I can.
These next places are easy – no joins necessary…
What about a strip along there?
It would appear that I’m on a roll 🤨
A dab of glue here and there holds the new trim in place.
If you want it it’s here on Amazon
Looks all right.
This centre vent surround looks like a good candidate too…
The dreaded join…
Hence the foil tape. I cut a small strip off the roll and apply it.
And finally (for now anyway!) I’ll try it on the storage bin…
A touch of elegance? Or overindulgence?

And I am always interested to hear about your Yeti, whether customised or not.
