Gonna make a center counsel similar to this. Going to modify the lower dash part. Take the Vic out. Cut the plastic up to below Ac controls or something. And tie into the solid part behind the dash for support And the counsel will hold gauges, switches and probably a cb.

Sorry I can't help it any more. I think it's a good idea. I have been wanting to do something like that for a while now. Make sure you get some 5 point harness's because it would suck to bounce around off that in an accident.

I hate my touch screen for that reason sometimes.

Never did think about hitting it in an accident. Id like to put in a storage part like the oem one. Not the one I have in the pic. And probably make room for a distribution block for gauges that will be put in as well as when I put different reverse lights. Going to get trans temp, voltage, water temp. Will have room to add if needed. Switches will be in it as well. Kinda excited to get started on this project.

Just going to get mechanical sun pro gauges from advanced. I don't need anything special.

Hahaha yea. I overheated the trans on a snowy mountain trail once hours from anything and it was getting near dusk. I just about crapped my pants. Luckily it cooled off and we were able to coast back down in N most of the way.

Shouldn't be hard to tie it into the dash, then weld the rear to the floor. Mine runs back up in the rear, but is welded to the floor as well. Race car alluminum is what the cover is made of, but it's very weak so you need supports to mount shifters and such.

Will get a sheet of sheet metal. And play around with it.

Only problem I can see right now is the trans shifter. Will work around it or modify it to work.

It's mounted to the floor, just leave it there and tin around it.

Not the bottem of it. The top of it is to close to the dash for what I want. Possible to maybe get a new shift nob. Or trim actual shifter to get it out of the way? That's the main problem as I look at it right now to make that space in front of the shifter. We will see.

Can't you move the shifter back to the cup holder area?
