60/40 cut, modded console

well i finally got some time to do some work to my interior
I cut the seat to get a 40/40 and sewed up the factory fabric....came out great . my dash and seats are gray, so I went black on the new pieces

installed a shorty console since I have a manual and I think I am not going to get the leather arm rest part since I like it the way it is and since the supports break alot anyway.

In its place, I am gonna have a diamond plate square and a repainted ford badge (will be black where usually blue). I think it will look sweet.... pics soon...

MANY MANY THANKS to FRANK (*pastfinder) who gave me the console and helped me get all of the rest of the hardware. You're a swell guy!

I have black and silver Ford badges as well, made for me by "buckgnarly" (Carl) from this site. They're subtle, but they're great.

black badge and PICS!!!

Alright Guys, here are the long awaited pics!!! I painted badge with model paint, but i would reccomend NOT doing that as it seems to be very fragile and it show wrinkles. I did the seat cutting, very straight forward, and the console was a little more complicated as i had to do some fabbing to get the bracket to match up. I also slanted mine a little forward cause i think it is more comfortable.
TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK...

no actually it was black when i got it and i got lucky with some 2001 to make it look good
I had to paint the little pop-in side covers cause they were tan, and yeah, some left over metal stock to cover where i didn't put the arm rest

Thanks man, it sure is my CB speaker... I got lucky and it fits perfectly there. I didn't screw it in or anything and it doesn't slide around!
