MogLite Posted June 12, 2006 Share Posted June 12, 2006 Well I phoned various suppliers asking for a centre console to suit a mid-mounted rear facing tranmission, drew a blank !! So it was out to the garage. Alas HFH's tales of fabrication seem to be influencing me, taking too bl00dy long, and making things darn heavy I needed to house a cubby box to hold valuables - I used a small Peli case for this Hi/low and diff-lock lever Twin handbrakes Switch panel Twin pnematic switches for the lockers Auto shifter (100% stock) I wanted the console as small/narrow as possible, to give maximum space in the cockpit I also wanted it not to join up with the "dashboard" so that clambering around is easier All the levers etc had to have space to move, not being able to use the handbrakes, because the auto-shifter was in the way, was not acceptable. Top panels had to be easily removable for maintenance/access There had to be a "recess" to allow space for the drivers seat rake adjust - I'd change my choice of seat halfway through the build !! Its taken me a week to get this far !! I'm now tidying up the welds, and getting ready for paint. Hopefully it will be 100% finished by this time next week ( I need to leave the paint to harden for a couple of days) I reckon by the time its finished - I'll have about 40 hours invested in it !!
