Center console installation in a series 1

Post by GRNSHRK »

Yes, finally got to yet another project, something I purchased about a hundred years ago :roll:

I had picked up a center console from a series II eons ago and finally dug it out and figured out how to mount it, which took a little figuring, since series I cars don't have these originally :-"

Luckily, I had the mounting brackets that was used when installed, and after removing the rubber boot from the parking brake handle, I could see how it was probably attached :-k

I used some right angle brackets that were slotted, which was important, since there was no way to determine where they needed to be mounted, vertically :-?

I used the same Leatherique dye that I used on the rest of the interior for a good match and got it bolted in yesterday \:D/

Thanks Yasin =D>

A buddy of mine saw that and said that it looks like it was made for it :shock:

Well, interesting, since it is :-?

Figuring out how to mount it was the hardest part :-"
