Center Consoles

Leon's Center Console

I think i still have the drawing of console, will check. will need to move your stickshift back ab. 8" to have the room
for this console. The question is "is it worth it to you"? It takes "some" work to get it done.

I accomplished several goals with it.
Have room for drive-thru food and 2 drinks(including 1ltr bottles) when driving and eating on the road. Have CD storage for 20 CDs. Have storage for sunglasses, flashlite etc.
Top storage for misc. things. Stickshift has much shorter throws(short shift). Stickshifter is much closer to driver and much more comfortable in relaxed position.

All this was enough for me to tackle this project. Sure i was afraid it would never work or line up well for shifting. But it was easier than i thought.

It's been 3 years and i couldn't be happier
