I started building the center console. Because I am using the 2005 Silverado seats,it leaves little room for a console. I didn't want to mess with a column shift so I am using a shifter out of a 2004 Corvette.

I am using 1 inch aluminum angle. I cut several slits in it so I could widen it out after it gets by the seat area.

I had to stretch it out a bit and change the shifter position as it wouldn't fit where I wanted it. The console will also house the ECM,wiring etc.

Any sign/graphics place should be able to get it. It is composite sandwiched by two thin sheets of aluminum. It's around 75 bucks for a 4x8 sheet in my area.

Body work pics. I blasted the edges of the hood and stripped the center by hand.
