Woodgrain console kit C5ZZ-6504567-AT

Looking at buying the woodgrain console resto kit from Scott Drake, C5ZZ-6504567-AT, and apparently it doesn't come with the little sliver of woodgrain right next to the shift quadrant, as in attached pic. How do you fix this area? Talked to CJ Customer Support...they have no answer.

CJs just distributes what they're given. Have you called Scott Drake? They're product knowledge is typically pretty good in my experience.

I used the SD metal backed kit to replace mine a couple years ago. It had every piece needed. I did have to slightly trim one of the small pieces. Other than that, it still looks perfect.

Patrick. Did you install it over the standard camera case black base, or is the deluxe chrome smooth so the trim sticks better? What glue did you use?

So, did your kit come with that little sliver piece of woodgrain?

I have an original 66 woodgrain center console, and it doesn't have that little sliver. It was painted (very thin paint) a light brown color. The edges around the woodgrain on the long part of the console were also "painted" a little bit around the woodgrain.

Ahhh...starting to make sense now. I also got a pic from Tony at "Tony's Auto Classics" that shows just exactly that.

Buy the cheap kit and use the sliver wood grain piece with the metal backed kit. Gotta look better then painting it.

Yeah, Surprising even back in the 60's Ford found it easier to Paint the "Sliver" Brown rather than cut a piece of Metal Woodgrain Trim. I'll never really understand that one.....unless there was a time element involved in its installation...then that I could understand.. but it stil does not make sense...

I agree, I'd just buy the part from the cheap kit and use it in the expensive kit....then sell the rest!...LOL..

I wonder if the woodgrain matches between the 2 kits. If it doesn't, using the cheap woodgrain sliver might look worse than painting!...LOL

Not assembly line or FoMoCo but back in the last century a kit was available that did the job correctly. That company, PRO, has been out of business for sometime and I have not seen a similar kit since. I used contact cement over the camera case to glue the metal backed inlay down. Brian

I'll bet you that the reason Ford decided not to run from front-to-rear with a contiguous piece was because that span of the applique would be so flimsy and weak, that just handling it from the manufacturer to the assembly plant and then onto a console/car, it was impossible to get the darned thing installed without severe kinking/bending/breaking that'd ruin the piece. Especially if they were self-adhesive with backing-paper, you couldn't even remove the paper without fubaring the piece.

With vinyl, you don't have that issue, although you could rip it easy enough if you weren't careful.

Nope. Mine is as the OEM like others have pointed out.
