so, fill me in. what can be done?
pardon me but it seems he (much like myself) doesn't want the WHOLE SC console swap but wants a better storage area/arm rest and cup holders.
I think I'm going to go w/ the Ebay option myself, but I'll offer up a couple suggestions I've looked into in the last few weeks:
1) There is a removable console in the '04-'09 Toyota Sienna Minivan (XLT) that is a PERFECT color and fit. I have a customer with one of these and took the opportunity to yank it out of his van and set it in my Box. The downside, they are uber-hard to find, if you do find them salvage yards want close to $300 (found so far) for one. New is a hilarious joke at $800+.
That thing is awesome though, huge cavernous, multiple storage areas, at least 4 cup holders (might be 6), etc.
2) Lexus RX-300 (say 98-04/5?) has a center console that I feel could be easily adapted to our cars, would have to make a minor modification to a portion in the front that is a catch-all in the RX but would be better off trimmed away for our cars. Has cup holders and good storage. This one I've found for $65 at one yard so far. I know I could have gotten it for $40-50 but the one I found so far was the wrong color so I passed.
Good luck and let me know what you come up with
