Ceiling console

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm a new member to the forum.

Cold anyone please tell me where I could obtain a new/ 2nd hand ceiling console for a Defender 110 hardtop. I want to install the CB out of harms way.

HAd a look at the Equippe 4x4 range but they were over £350 new.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Regards,

Andy.

I like it and I haven't even thought about one of those! Still pricey at £195 (IMO) blink.gif

Doubt you'll find one for much less pounds, or you could have a bash at making your own from alloy/wood & cover with leatherette.

here`s a drawing if you fancy making one yourself, as I did

How would you fix one of the consoles to the roof?

Is the lining strong enough?

Time to petition Mr. Baldwin at Mudstuff to come up with a home grown version, methinks :)

The problem with any home made thing like that is that it usually looks like a home made thing - a bit "Blue Peter" if you like.

They are good - I have seen a couple here - very neat solution and if you have a newish vehicle, in the context of what it all cost would you ruin the interior for the sake of a couple of hundred quid?

I realy like these consoles however they only fit non sunroof models so like me if you have a sunroof they wont fit! I have considered making one that requires the sunroof removed and uses the space, this would also help with the all too familiar leaky sunroof problem as in most defenders

that's a tidy Series dash, like the glove box.

Yes we were fitting those to series ones in the 1960's
