doing a EF/EL conversion on my car and was baffled on how i was going to fit the console. I got a console, but, while browsing Ebay i noticed this:

It looks like that console is on a plastic/fibreglass stand, is that factory? and how hard is it to fit over the top of the EA-ED transmission tunnel???[/img]

thanks, it was a bit deceiving, because when i first looked at pics like this

it looked as if the cover was metal becuase the interior is silver! lol!

mabey someone who has done a EF/EL conversion would know if there are any issues fitting it. I assume i will have to drill some holes for it :twisted:

From memory (when I converted my NA), it sat in there just fine. I think I used a couple of self tappers to hold it in place. Just make sure you line it up properly so that the console will meet up with the dash.

does the back of the console support sit flush with the EA-ED floor pan? i'm thinking not becuase of the different floor sections in EF/EL
