I plan on getting away from the auto belts. I did pick up a set though. I was thinking about going with a harness to match the seats I want. This is also a reason I tried to mimic the stock dash to some extent in case I need to go back to the auto-belts

Laid out and cut the hole for the shifter boot
After about an hour of filing the opening I got pretty much what I wanted
You can see I also decided to go with one solid console instead of two pieces.
next was the area of the old seat belt releases. I am gonna keep the mirror switch but I needed to make a removable cover because I plan on using the factory mounting locations. I
I went with some nice cap head screws. Because the console is aluminum and the hardware is steel I used 2 part epoxy to attach the nuts,
Not as easy to neatly apply as I anticipated
And this is were we are now. Had to change the stock hinge on the armrest. Not sure if I am going with a radio or gauges. But I need a place for things like my phone and some change.
That will either go in the mirror switch panel or in the bottom of the radio face like stock,

I did some more work on it this week:
Cut in the switch for the power mirrors
Once again I used 2 part epoxy to hold 4 bolts in place then cut some pieces of aluminum to hold the boot in place.
Here it is fitted in the car. I cut the angles at the bottom of the radio area to adjust the angle slightly. I will need to extend the back bottom because it is not sitting flush to the carpet. This shot shows the new carpet too
It was not an exact fit but it will be fine.

what are your plans to finish it off? are you gonna paint it or have it powder coated.......i would almost just clear it and leave the raw metal look to it.

I had some great help from members here getting parts together. Next big purchase will be the roll bar. I know I really do not need one but I am looking to do away with the auto-belts, so I need to go harnesses.
This baby is going to have many mods and fab work done since it was practically in pieces when I got it.
