Did you remember to get the mouting bracket for the overhead from above the head liner? That's what holds it up.

It's a metal plate roughly the size and shape of the overhead console. I clamps the headliner between the console and the plate, holing the console up. While your at it make a template of the cut out in the headliner for cutting yours when you mount it.

Doubt it would be. It's useless without the console.

LOL cut that whole section of the headliner out.

Just cut some cardboard.. While your at it take a measurement from the wind shield.

I had to do mine with no reference. Yours should be easier.

try not to breathe the fibers from the headliner when you cut it. Wear a dust mask. The fiberglass will irritate your lungs.

i got the bracket for the console before work. i also got another goodie. pics tomorrow.

i'll most likely have to go back to the yard to get those measurements, i hope it'll work out without screwing something up. and i hope they won't try to charge me for it, some of the workers there are stingy.

josh, it's grandpa john's in green bay. their prices are awesome! i got the overhead console for $2.

Hey Tim if you see this could you look for a sunroof handle insert for the sliding cover? I will gladly pay for it and your time and shipping.

Did you ever get the swaybar in??
