      Thank you
      You will need the angled E-brake handle, I cannot find the part number right now, or you can modify your own, drilling out the rear 2 mounting holes and drilling a new front hole to angle the bracket into the correct orientation. I would just got back to the junkyard and pick up the E-brake from the car you got the updated console from.

      Your armrest will work no problems.

      idk why everyone is always making a big fuss about the damn ebrake handle when updating to the cupholder console... i literally just bent it a little in under 5 seconds and has worked flawlessly for the last 2 1/2 years

      What is the engine attached to an engine hoist? Either that or your and my idea of a floor jack differ.

      Yeah I'm not looking forward to that, I was honestly thinking about starting at the sunroof controls and then working my way out from there.

      Update time!

      The B-pillars after messing them up finally came out the way I wanted them.

      Let it sit.



      Finally no wrinkles



      The final product, Sorry for the blurry picture.



      Now its just time to cut down the pieces and start the headliner and parcel shelf. Still waiting for some other goodies to come in. Also an unmentioned goody which I will wait until its in the car to show.

      Funny you should say that because the slider shroud that I painted, well it didn't hold up that well when bending it back in.


      Quick update again

      The B-pillars are fully finished.

      Actually I will probably pay to you get me all the upper plastics depending on what you get quoted for them from the junk yard.


      Well, a small update again, a package I received today... What is it? Thanks UPS!



      Ah an engine cover to make it look all pretty again, thanks augie1209!
