Thanks, I'm getting there. Need to be finished by Thursday night, so I can drive it to the Nationals Friday morning. Technically I can do that now. But the interior is still torn apart. Plus I haven't even washed it yet 🤣

Trying to finish the interior up before Thursday night. Go to work early today and grabbed a piece of 1/4" textured black polyethylene plastic. The console I got at the junk yard was in good shape except for the console lid. Only the outer skin was left. Cut it to fit and drilled the mounting holes. I have a piece of piano hinge at home that I think will work good to mount the lid to the console. Then I have to mount the console to the floor.

I get if you are trying to save on the build, but I used this on the Blazer and it worked really well. I just trimmed it down and had enough to do a second console if need be. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbil...nndsXGHKtLlelzzyRu-enEG2wcJ6HJx443OB2zGCo3b5c

Made it to the Nationals this morning around 6:30. Spent 6 hours working on the car last night. One issue after another, but now I can relax!

Congrats Shawn! The car looks great. The thrash has obviously paid off. Well earned.
