Re: Anyone make their own center console
To mount mine to the floor, I used a riser from an older console (Steel Horse) in the back and bolted the front directly through the floor of the trans hump.
The hinge is hard to explain. Let me try a picture...
I didn't add a hinge to mine, I used the existing hardware on the ammo can to "make" a hinge. The circled stuff was removed, and the outlined rod or bar was left in place and tack welded to the body of the ammo can. Since the rod goes through the lid, it is basically already set up to be a hinge, it just needs to be securly and permanently attached to the body (welded). I just did that to one end and left the latching mechanism on the other.
I hope that makes sense and the picture comes through...
