I started work on my console. I had some wood scraps and carpet adhesive in the garage. I bought a roll of carpet in the automotive section at Walmart. The photos below show what I have done so far. Maybe I'll finish it up tomorrow. I carpeted the inside of the box and the outside. It looks like it won't interfere with my parking brake at all but may make the cup holders hard to get to. I'll worry about that later. I plan to put some blocks on the bottom so that when it sits in the factory console tray, it can't move forward or backward.
