Hi

This is the start of my new centre console.
I remember awhile back some people were toying with the idea of a Ba console in an early e-series, so some may be interested.

As you can see there is still abit of work, but the structure is there.
The sides inserts need to be glued in, cut down and shaped. Then the whole lot gets smoothed and painted

Will keep you posted.
Cheers
Ben

Will be watching this with interest. Had an idea similar (but not using the BA Console) kicking around in my head

**Update**

It's been on the back burner for a bit. As it stands I have about an hour of sanding before its smooth. The sides are all blended and it's all bolted and plastic-welded together. To accomodate my sub box I have to remove about an inch or two from the back so it will slant from the lid instead of bulging (if you get me). Then I have to mod the lid so it hinges on the passenger side.

Here are some pics in it's plastibond glory

Thanks for looking

mate that is going to look great!!! :o
what colour are you going to be painting it? i saw your post and pics which has inspired me to do a similar job on my XG ute :mrgreen: . when you mouled the two consoles together what did u use apart from plastic welding? fiberglass/fiberglass filler, panel bond or something??

Dose a BA console screw to the floor the same as a EF/EL one...

Are the mount points the same?
