Happy New Year, all!
I am getting ready to embark on designing and building a center console/ armrest for my 79 CJ7 and am looking for suggestions on how to best secure it to the floor of the tub.
I intend to start with a piece of 1" sq stock across the front of the tub, just below the dash panel. From there, I am planning to construct a framework similar to the one below:
My problem is, I am not sure how to connect it to the tub. I would like to bolt it, for ease of removal/ modification. The tub/trans tunnel are full of different contours and elevations (see photo), so for simplicity's sake, I will have to stay above the highest point.
I've seen where some people have built 'pedestals', but this seems cheesy to me...
I've also seen some that have been built all the way back to the rear seat riser formed into the floor (see pic), but I think that might impede rear seat access (not that it is used much)....
Thanks in advance!
