my 20 dollar full length center console. better pics!

needs a few things to make it how i want it. such as a real armrest. silver piece needs a good cleaning and repainting. and i believe there was cupholder inserts for it, but im not too worried about that.

theres also a bit of a gap between the dash and front of the console. i market the holes for where to drill into the floor for the bracket to hold it, but after tightening everything down it shifted the console back a bit. oh well. then mounted the CB in there. drilled holes behind it for all the wires and stuff. works graet, and i can hear it better now because the speaker points directly out.

pics!

hit up the junkyard! lol

also, as ugly as the lid for the console is, i double padded it and picked a really soft fabric. its really soft! lol

idk if i want to get an oem lid because it wont be as comfortable lol

You don't even wanna know seat prices

I wish we had a yard were you could pull it your self like some on here have.

All yards in Missouri they pull it then let you look at it. You cant look at it till they pull it. So it takes forever when you do go.
