has anyone tried to cut and redo their center console?

i took mine out today and i must say i like it better this way. i would like to remove it but keep the shifter leather and the rest of the plastic that goes around that area to make it look clean. also, i would need a hump or something for the ebrake. either that, or maybe try to find thin alum. section and bolt it to the base of the ebrake. what do you guys think.

does anyone have any ideas how to cheaply fab up such a setup?

Are you talking about cutting the cup holder section out?

i'm not sure, maybe cut everything past the shifter or maybe past the cup holder. i will post a pic of just the carpeted hump tomorrow or so and you'll see what i mean.

I wouldn't, beacuse of the wiring and air bag control module sits under the arm rest compartment. Just leave it man.

no, all the wiring can easily be put next to the shifter. the only wiring that goes to the compartment is the fog lights and a power supply.

there's a lot of space under that whole console tho. When I ran my sub wires and stuff, I ran the power supply through there, and noticed all that space. It would be good for a power inverter if anybody was to put one in their car.

No, the air bag controller sits under there.

I think Dom is kinda right, the Air bag stuff is there also, but I cant think off the top of my mind the right spot.
