I need a few questions answered to get this AU console into my EA.
How do i get the air pipes that run under the AU console to fit?
The AU air pipe has a larger mouth for the front vent compared to the EA which is smaller do i have to cut and shut the pipes?
The AU pipes are longer do i have to shorten the AU pipes?
How do i secure the AU console to the floor as none of the original screw holes on the AU console match up with the ones on the floor of my EA?
If anyone can shed some light and tips on this mod it would be appreciated...... :D

i just drilled my screws thru the box to the metal support on the tunnel and trimmed back the air tubes till they meshed together.

Did you use the EA or the AU air tubes? And how did you secure the front(under dash) of the AU console??

i left the AU tube where it was and just trimed the bell mouth of the AU tube to fit in with the EA one up under the dash

the consol goes nowhere with the 2 screws holding the consol in by the bin tight fit FTW!

Thanks for that, the problem im having is getting the AU pipes for the rear vents to line up with the EA's vent that comes out of the heater box which is situated under the dash, the EA mouth is smaller and squarer compared to the AU mouth which is more rectangle shape and has a larger opening. I might just cut the two in half(pipes) and rejoin them (which i didnt want to do as my EA console is in top condition)
