I finished (mostly) rewiring and reassembling the interior in my '66 conv. I ordered the correct console mounting bracket from Mustangs Unlimited months ago to replace the piece of wood and long bolts holding the front of the console down.

When I tried to reinstall the console with the new bracket it wouldn't fit. The bracket seems to be about 3/4" too tall, the console hits the underside of the dash and the bracket hits the lower side of the console. Has anyone else delt with this? I don't want to rig it like the PO.

It just occurred to me that the carpet and underlyament is probably 1/2" to 3/4" inch thick, I guess I should mount the bracket directly to the trans tunnel and cut a hole in the carpet and underlayment.

I need to stop letting the PO knock the logic hat off of my head!

That is the way they are mounted (direct to the metal, through carpet). I also had to take it out before I could get the console out. I am not sure if thats the way it has to go back in. In my other car I never put it back in. Let me know how it works out for you.
