Cortina center console

Recommended Posts

Hi all

So as I'm far too tight to buy a proper one I thought I'd make my own, main reason is these genuine ones would need to be adapted to fit my mk1 as the gear stick comes out where the clock would be and the hand brake is in the trans tunnel, so I'd pay a small fortune and cut it about.... Hmmm! plus id like a cup holder being picky, too many drinks have ended up rolling around leaking over my carpets! 

So, do I look for a 2nd hand knackered one and adapt it (anyone got 1?) or do I just fabricate my own, if I do how did they get secured? Screwed through the trans tunnel?

I have an old centre console that could be of use that I bought cheap to chop about. My intention was to see if I could get an Android unit to fit it with some old style gauges mixed in. I don't believe it's a genuine Ford unit, but was fitted to a MK1 Escort before I had it. 

Not far down the road from you, plus you can get an ice cream from Lockes Garage if you fancy it. 

I'll grab you a picture later.
