here is my roof console it took me 2 days to put together only problem I am having is trying to wire it up. I might go down the drivers side floor pan and follow up the rear pillar.

I fed my wires up the passanger side.

what i used was a offcut from the blue wire from the arb air lockers and then wrapped the wires around that with tape, then fed that up the pillar arcross the roof.

but um if you pulled the whole door trim thingy off, i think the roof might drop enough to be able to just get your hand up in there.

Thanks mate, thats a very good job.
I have just bought myself an industrial sewing machine with walking foot, so I am going to be able to do my own stuff now. After a few lessons that is.

cheers.

see the 3 pic and the 5 pic
i used where the mirror and the Interior light. I had to use bigger screw for the light one because i used 12mm ply
I made the console then mounted the mounts and drew around were it would sit when the console is installed for easier placement.
the only thing i would do different is move the rear support back more it would make it easy to install
lucky the missus has small hands.
