Yeah, baby! Great to see you're at the point of installing the console! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)
And welcome to the club of folks who've removed those mofo consoles. Not fun, as you well know...

Great job on that locator jig, too!

Looking good Dion! I did a LOL when you said Dave made some dowel pins at Work. It reminded me of my dad making stuff at work at the Budd company as a tool as die guy. He would bring stuff home to incorporate into my go cart we were building.

It’s been a little while. Time to update the diary.
With the console jig in place and outer trailing arm console firmly attached I began the task of welding it in place. It was pretty straightforward. The spot weld areas had already been drilled out. Tacked it in. Rechecked the measurements. All was good. Gave it some primer and seam sealer. Next up, the engine (Inner console).

Inner console piece was prepped and positioned.
I also cut some steel rods to use as measurement guides to keep me on track.

Welded in and then set to add the extra strengthening pieces that wrap around the console arm.

Double checked alignments and clamped the outer clamshell on. I want to add: prior to welding the outer clamshell on and the rear kickup piece, (forgot to take pics, too excited about getting them on) I sprayed the perimeter where I would be welding with weld through primer. The rest of the panels interior i treated with Eastwood internal chassis coating. Even though the RD panels are galvaneal i figure the extra coating won’t hurt.

Thanks for the kudos Chris! @tygaboy . It was a bit nerve wracking for the novice here.

Then finally finished up the kickup area. As you can see I’m not doing the factory jack post. It is never going to be concours. I will always be using my lift to service it.
If it needs lifting on the road well there’s AAA flatbed or use the “donut” areas.

Removed the door catch piece. It was a rusty hunk. Surprised it was strong enough to handle the braces. Had to cut out bad metal lurking behind it.
