Default center console/cubby hole

Does the cener console come apart? I am wanting to removed just the ashtray part and maybe the cubby hole below the HVAC controls.

I am wanting to hide switches in the ashtray compartment and add a A/F gauge inside that cubby.

Any thoughts?

yes, pull off the dash trim and you will see how it comes apart... you will also have to remove the shifter ****, and the console plate to get full access

seems like a good place... but i like my aeroforce in the vent a lot better

I like that. How har was that?

I'm planning on nitrous in the future and am going to put the master arm/purge/bottle switches in the ashtray since I'd never use it for its orignal purpose. And I am going to run a DAWES guage for ym A/F.

What guage is that?

the exterior of the guage. its all black. It stands out too much. I'm trying for it not to be noticed unless you are looking for it.

yes, all black, or white, other than taking apart a $200+ gauge to change the color
