Does anyone know if the front console mounting bracket for a 73 should attach on top of the carpet or should the carpet be cut around it? Thanks for the help.
How many and what type of fasteners are used?dksdust said:I just removed one from a 73 in the salvage yard and it was on top of the carpet .
Custom Jim said:While I cannot comment on any other years other than the two 74's I have, the front brackets for the consoles are welded to the floor. It's possible they might have been screwed down on other years or from different plants and even on mine I could cut off the welds and drill holes in the bracket and be able to screw it down to the floor. If I was unsure if it might have been welded in at one point but now it's bolted on I would think there might be evidence of some welds at one point.
mine are welded on the 73. there are holes in the return leg at the end of each bracket (f&b) and screws go thru the console sides into these holes to hold the console in place. not the most secure but it works..............
