    That project planning book looks interesting, I could definitely use something like that to get my project back on track and moving forward!

    I ordered the project and electrical planning " https://staceydavid.com/product/educational-book-bundle/ " with shipping right at $50. if it can keep my head straight on a plan it will be well worth the money.

    I'm not too worried about the electrical wiring part of it, I've worked with that before and have actually run 440V shipboard electrical systems while in the Naval Reserve as a stoker. It's more on the planning side of things that I need help!

    I have the 5th gen. Console and there are some pics in my build thread. It looks like it was made for the car when it is properly fit. I am still working on getting the final install done but one of the best additions I have done. Highly recommend it.

    As soon as I have my motor of choice in the Car and sitting with the engine and tranny in it I will get in touch. I want it to handle much better than when it rolled off the showroom floor back in 1971 with an aggressive ride height.

    Here are a couple pics of the 5th gen console in my car, sorry they aren't the best. I absolutely love the fit and cup holders are a bonus.

    I Like it.

    I have the option to buy a 4th gen Z28 Camaro right now and scavenge it for the LS1 and 460E. What all interior from a 4th gen bolt up to in a 2nd gen without a ton of fabrication?
