I finally found more time to get going on the new console.
I bought enough USB cables to run the full length of the car and have power setup for the touch screen.
First fitting to get a feel for the trimming needed
Part way there, I'm thinking the Riv shifter won't work. I had to drop the console quite a bit and it's messing uo the geometry fo the shifter, but I have a '92 Camaro shifter that may work better.
But, I like it, it's starting to look like it was born there..
I wired up the lights
, cigarette lighter (it will power my touch screen) and the power port.
Removed the 7mm screws that held the ashtray and junk box
the ashtray light will provide power to the console lights, since both are GM, they are even the same color. I will tap into the lighter to power and ground the power port
power to the lights
power to the lighter
power to the power port!
This where I left off. I still need the shift cable setup but it's getting there! I wanted to be done before Wagonfest West but no dice.......
