Icon6 GOT MY EXPLORER CENTER CONSOLE.

HI!... Well today I went to the local junk yard and picked up a few things. One of them was a "98" EXPLORER full length center console. Got it complete, plus the rear, and cup holder from another console for $55.00(CAN). When I got home with it, I started to take it apart to clean it up and paint it to match my interior I found a little bonus inside! A Ford 6 disc CD changer. lol! Anyway, here's a few pics of my progress so far :

HI!... It's made by SEM. It's a spraybomb but the paint is like a dye and penetrates the plastic.

HI!... Well I finished the install today. I glued the rear console air vents shut so no one would play with them and possibly break them. They are quite fragile. I also made a filler panel for where the HVAC controls were. Here's a few pics :

HI!...


Why would you add that? I got thinking and you about going fast. Wouldn't that add a lot of unnecessary weight?

It looks real good though.
