    Thats really neat. Almost looks factory.

    Looks great. Many say velcro but yea unsure.
    I like the lip in the gap, but yea factory bolts that would be a prick. .

    I had both in my GQ, dash pod & roof console
    while I never hit my head, some passengers always did

    like Sharky's early one, mine was a Dept. of the Interiors Dash Pod
    unlike Sharky, I never had a problem with the bolts near the windscreen
    and
    I had the cables go through the same hole as the right hand bolt (made it more interesting trying to get it in or out for mods)

    I had a clock and an Inclinometer in mine,a as the UHF was in the roof console

    (was out of a 60 series)
    Tidy Whitey - 99 GU TD42Ti - Diesel Gas, (GUIV Turbo & Intercooler 8Lb boost), 33" Micky T's Baja MTZ's, Dual Batt's, Cargo Barrier, rear draws, HID Super Oscars, winch, Grinch & witch attached and more goodies to come

    Yeah I probably prefer your console than mine, Although great storage but I hit my head on mine a lot.

    Westy I took a pic of where I ran wires/cables for top mounted radio. I could get a good enough pic of other wires/cables coming into the back of console, Sorry best pic I could get
