More progress on the console, the rear corner is opened up for hinge clearance..

8-32 machine screws cut off and sharpened to serve as spotters for our hardware location in the lid..

8-32 rivet nuts installed in our match drilled holes for attaching the lid to the hinges..

That looks ace! My old Hilux Surf needs a centre console so I might have to 'borrow' some ideas from this
