I have wanted a floor shift console ever since I saw a 09 with one so after lots of brain storming (drinking beer) it has begun> Started with 3/8 lexan and went from there some 6/32 screws a drill and a jigsaw. I'll add pics as it goes along.

Good luck man! Looks like you have the right idea so far! I plan on doing something like this in the future myself, so it'll be cool to see how yours turns out.

Put two pvc pipes in the by the dash cut out into the box and youll have two cup holders. And they fit basically ever type of drink you can put in there.

1st. Light wieght.
2nd. Easy to work with
3rd. & Most Important It's FREE scrap from work. LOL
I want it to look factory but It mostlikely will not because I am going with a after market racheting race shifter and that brings me to this; How well will our automatic trans hold up to manualy shifting?
