Picking up a center console, advice

So I finally found a full length expo center console. The console is still in the car, so I will have to get it out myself.

Does anyone have any advice on getting it out. Where to start? Hidden screws? I can't imagine it will terribly hard, just wanted all the advice I can get.

I figured it was that easy, but I've never looked at one close to see where all the screws are

Same here until i got mine lol. make sure you unplug all the wires and stuff connected to the heater fan. also cut the wire for the power jack and leave enough to rewire.

Were there two different gray consoles in Expo's?

I called the guy and he said it was light gray. I'm not sure that will look good in my interior

You'll have to slide it back then pull it up. It has 2 tabs on the back that slide underneath the floor.

I would try 75 if it has a couple tears. I would grab the OHC, mirror and visors if it has all those too.

Well I called the guy back, he said the leather buckets have no tears, and they're power. He said the creases made it look like tears.

He said he'd like $100, should I talk him down?

I bet if I get a lot of parts, he will come down on the price anyway

You can't link them like that. It was trying to sign into your email.

Should I talk down from $100?

Some leather cleaner should clean most of it up

I think I'm gonna get the bezel too, the OHC, prolly the visors
