    I was planning on shaping something to mold and fit underneath. Using the existing pieces. If I ever get to it I will pics. If it turns out nice

    I just bought console from a wrecked camaro, 100 bucks, then bought RS bezel for manual tranny. I think Im going to really like the way this looks. I wont be doing interior for a while, but this will look sharp. looks like it belongs in there.

    My plans are to hook up the usb to power, to at least charge my cell phone. Also to make use of the traction control switch on the console for something, I believe its just a momentary switch. I like the cell phone idea for the e-brake!

    If it is momentary I'm using it for a trunk release. Bought the electric trunk release from Year One.

    It is a momentary switch, but you push it 2x for two different levels in the original car. I am not sure it can be converted to another use without some additional electronic wizadry. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    The stock USB can be wired up, but I found it easier to pop it out and put an aftermarket 2 port charger in. I added additional chargers and used, power and ground distribution blocks to make all the attachments. I also hooked up the stock cigarrette lighter there as well .

    My build thread has pics etc.

    More then likely it is just a momentary switch that when you push it the computer sees it and does a function. Then on the second push the computer does the other function.

    Could someone give me a rough estimate of what this measurement is? I wondering if it sits too low in that area for an automatic and the shifter assembly will stick up too high?
