A: At this stage, we do not offer a Full Length Floor Console for models up to MY2009 (steel dash models). If you'd like to add your details to a list of customers interested in this product, feel free to send your details and vehicle model to sales@consoles.com.au.
 
Q: Can I fit my UHF to a Full Length Floor Console?
A: The front accessories facia is on an ideal angle to fit a UHF radio, which you will need to see and operate while driving.There is limited amount of depth behind the front accessories facia. The width is also limited as a result of the airbag mechanism and deceleration sensor installed in this position (located under the factory cup holder to the left of the shifter). The following UHF radios can be mounted into the Full Length Floor Console:
  • GME TX3520 - the remote face of this UHF will fit in the front facia (we'd suggest on the passenger's side). The body of the UHF can be fitted inside the console close to the back. We'd suggest fitting a GME SPK-07 extension speaker as the speaker in this UHF is in the body of the radio (which would be muffled). Alternatively, if you are considering (or have already done) a stereo upgrade, you can wire the UHF radio up to the factory pioneer 4" speakers under the dashboard.
  • GME TX3100 and TX3120S - This 'super compact size' UHF will fit on the driver's side of the front accessories facia. We'd suggest fitting a GME SPK-07 extension speaker as the speaker in this UHF is in the body of the radio (which would be muffled). Alternatively, if you are considering (or have already done) a stereo upgrade, you can wire the UHF radio up to the factory pioneer 4" speakers under the dashboard.
  • GME XRS 330C and GME XRS 370C (+ any other UHF radios with all controls, speaker and and screen on the hand piece e.g. Icom IC-450)- The body of the UHF can be fitted inside the console close to the back. We can supply and fit an RJ45 plug in the front accessories facia for $40 incl. GST. to plug in your hand piece. 
 
Other 'Super Compact', 'Mini Compact' and 'Micro Size' radios e.g. Uniden XTRAK 40, Oricom UHF300 etc. can be fitted on the driver's side of the front accessories facia.

A: Yes, absolutely. Our most popular colour options are dark grey to match the dashboard, or black to match centre instrument panel, however we do offer this product in any colour of your choice. If you've had some other work done to your interior and would like to match the material you have already used, we can upholster the console in the same material. We have accounts with most suppliers in Australia and can most likely source the material to match. You can get in touch with our sales team over the phone or via email to discuss pricing and options.

  • 301 Black Vinyl- this is a match to the black accessories in the vehicle, for example the black instrument panel in the centre of the dashboard. The colour and grain match that of the handbrake handle and gear shifter knob. 

Q: Do you need to remove the factory rubber boot?
A: The manual gear boot in this product is decorative only. The installer must leave the factory rubber boot in place. This rubber boot acts as a seal to prevent fumes and transmission noise from entering the vehicle.


Q: Can I buy the blank plywood frame?
A: Unfortunately not. We do not offer our product as a blank timber frame. Our machinists and upholsterers have tens of years of experience and we love to offer our product with the highest quality finish. If you'd like us to upholster the console to match some other work you are having done in the vehicle, view the FAQ's above.

Q: Does the console obstruct the glove box?
A: No. There is a small recess on the passenger's side at the front which allows for the glove box to open correctly without rubbing on the side of the console.

Q:  What is the console made out of?
A: Our products are constructed with exterior grade, marine bonded plywood and finished with soft padded vinyl upholstery to match your interior.
