Hybrid Center Console project (for 86 - 93 stangs)
MW Note: What kevin
is working on is taking a console from a 96 stang and get it re-worked
and fitted into an 86 - 93 stang. Shifter location and A/C controls
are of course in slightly different places so this is an interesting
project. Finished product sometime in the future -
A work in progress.
Here's the pics
that I have of the modifications to the center console and
the dash. Some key points:
a)The white face guages are
the VDO millenium kit, all mounted in the
locations of the original factory guages.
b)Where the original 86 fan/heater
controls were is where the boost guage,
fuel pressure guage, drefroster switch, mirror switch, and air/fuel
guage (It's the digital one in the right corner which will have a tinted
piece of plastic in front of it) are at.
c) The defroster switch is
out of a 96 and the mirror switch is out of a
Taurus that operates mirrors from an 89.
d) The fan/heater controls
that are now in the center console are also from
Other interior mods include:
a) Auto-dimming rear-view mirror from a Mercury Grand Marquis
b) Seats from an 89 Saleen.
c) The rest of the interior is out of an 88
d) The entire color scheme is the 2-tone gray from 87.
