The pictures below show the work I am doing to make a center console addition to the truck at this time. I grabbed a
center console with shifter from a 2008 ford f150. it does not have all the shift positions in order to use the manual shift
mode of the 6l80e but I can live without that. It does however have a lighted shift indicator and tow haul button which will
definitely be handy with this ole truck.
Above and below you can see the filler panels I am making for between the dash and the front of the f150 console. next
step is to secure the bottom sections of the panels and make the face plate where the radio and ac bezels will be mounted.
After that figure out where to place the ecm and fuse panel for easy access.
I may have to go in and remake the side panels on both sides luckily I have enough abs plastic panel to make another
set without any problems. Will know more when I get the face panel where the radio and ac bezels will mount completed. might
even try some custom bondo work or epoxy resin and make a lip the merges smooth with the dash panel there. all these pieces
will be covered with synth leather to match the seats and console colors.
