Jim, the console just looks spectacular. Sometimes I see some of these "Fabéd" up consoles and they don't look like they fit with the car but yours looks like a factory install. Great job, love it....Jack
Retired Bum...The transition was easy
here it is installed , pretty much done just need to figure out the lighting , with some advise ill get it...
That looks really goooood! I have to admit, at 1st I thought the wood was a little prehistoric but at the end of the day its well built and looks friggin awesome! I will be making a console myself and your thread I will use as a reference
YEAH , i was reluctant because of the wood too, then i was going to fiberglass it, and everyone that saw it said that it didn't need it , that it was way strong the way it was. and i saw a couple made from wood and they had no problems with them, this thing is finish nailed screwed and glued. it is very strong. then i bolted a rear half round floor bracket to it and bolted it to the floor, you can push sideways on this thing and it doesn't budge..
Were did you find a rear half round floor bracket. I have an aftermarket console that I am trying to mount to my floor. Thanks
i had to make it, i had a piece of 2" x 1/8" flat plate. i found a tree branch that had the right diameter and bent it around that then bent the ends strait up ,it bolts on the side of the console with carriage head bolts so they are under the leather. and the rounded part just bolts right to the floor, this thing is bullet proof...
