Just ordered the new TMI Full Length Center Console. Can't wait! Looks gorgeous!

I searched and couldn't find any posts on this. But I just ordered a TMI Full Length Center Console.




I am told there is a 4 week lead time. I will make sure to take some good pictures to show everyone. I am thinking I will hide my new fuse box for my rewire in the console too. I might try to make a door in the side of the console that goes under the dash so I can get easy access to the fuses.

Interesting. Why would you put the fuse box in the console? Planning on blowing a lotta fuses?

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

I dont plan on it

I was looking at the size of the fuse box, made a cardboard template, and try to find where I would stuff it under the dash and I wasnt sure where it would fit. Might be because there is so much crappy excess wiring in there.

Maybe I wont need to.

CJ Pony Parts which was a LOT less expensive than the manufacture- even direct when I called them. It was $449 and I used a 5% off coupon.

Well it came SO much earlier than quoted. Yay for surprises. It is a fairly nice unit. Im not sure about how durable it will be over the years. It already came with an issue. There are wood pieces glued underneath that the upholstery is stapled to. One of the wood pieces is already unglued. Also there were some minor quality issues like the cutting of the black box in the arm rest. Here are a bunch of pics:

I would get some 5-minute epoxy on all those loose areas and glue them down... Just a suggestion...

IMO it's pretty pricey for what you are getting. Should be around 295.00 tops.

you can reglue with FLAMMABLE contact adhesive or 3m spray can rubberized glue both avail at home depot and lowes etc..

the epa prohibits them nd ALL businesses from using glue that will actually glue anything. only a private party can use real glue.

Looks decent and I like the cup holders but I still like the original designs. I do think the console would be a great location for fusebox if you are installing a new harness or adding an aux fuse panel. I hate laying on my back to get access to the fuse box. In the console or the glovebox would be ideal locations I would think. I would not attempt to relocate the factory fusebox though.

+1 on this. Is that plywood?

I was debating between this TCI console, since I want the Sport R seats or the MTF one. They are so expensive, I just figured it was a bit....higher quality.

I sent you a private message. Requesting the width and depth of that forward piece. Wondering if its possible to modify that cubby to mount a stereo in there.

I have seen the MTF consoles and even though they cost more they are way better quality for those that are on the fence about where to shop. Rich will do whatever you need to make it personal for your car.

Question about TMI center console

Hello Guys,

I live in the Netherlands and this is for me the first time on VMF, i have a question about installing this TMI center console (TMI center console with chrome trim full length sport R without A/C coupe/ fastback 65-66) ! Can someone Help me?
question:
I have an automatic shifter but i watched the video from CJ Pony Parts where they install the console but that was a 3-speed shifter, something is not really clear to me, must you remove the shifter lever from the shifter assembly or do you only have to remove the shifter handle and slide the center console over the shifter lever??Sorry for my bad english, i come from the Netherlands so i hope you understand me! Thanks!!

best regards
