I appreciate the pics on this! It made my deal a whole lot easier!

I got my console (and replaced my broken mirror adjustment switch) from Caliber too.

Got my wood shifter and chrome surround from Performance Products.

Hated the block-out covers so I went ahead and got the real seat heater switches for looks. Might figure out how to get them to illuminate with the rest later on.

The whole job took me about two hours as well (based on clock reading from disconnected battery).

I had to spend a little time cleaning years of drink spillage too!

I ran into the same problem with the black plastic housing that holds the connections in place. I put the switches in the wood console and did away with the black plastic housing altogether...I just removed each of the connections one one-by-one and attached directly to the switches already mounted onto the console. Couldn't seem to figure out how to get it to work with the modified wood console mounting? Lack of a dremel tool maybe?

I kept the old pieces as I might go at it again one day and get it to fit.

Wish I had a digital camera to show you the results...now the console looks TOO nice...gotta get new carpeting, seat covers, etc....
