Thanks man. I feel your pain, I was doing something similar for a long time. This seat really makes a huge difference. I can play Forza for....way too many hours at a time... and my back/bum won't be aching.

I've mostly just been playing with this for the last year and a half or so. While buying a new center console for my truck (Frontier console with cupholders) I was mistakenly sent a 2009 Pontiac G5 console instead. The order has since been corrected and everything is fine now, but after taking some measurements I decided to go ahead and buy the G5 console from them to use on my racing sim. They gave me a very nice discount on it I had to trim it a little on the right side of the shifter hole so that the console would sit flat on the ground, and then had to trim some plastic out under the shifter hole itself to make the Logitec shifter fit under there. The e-brake I have fits nicely in the Pontiac's e-brake hole as well. I had some thin flat bar left over from another project that I'm using to make the bracketry to mount the shifter to the base I'm going to make (out of 2x4).


Here's a picture of the console next to the seat. I'm going to build up the base underneath the console to get it to sit up higher so it'll be in a position more like a real car. The wooden box sitting in the seat is my "quick and dirty" shifter holder I made over a year ago and never bothered to update lol.

LOL - that's cool.

Your original pics from 2017 & Photobucket are gone, but I can see what you did in this latest post.

In another update, I built this metal stand for the shifter.



Fits perfectly under the console.



The metal bit has since been painted. I got sick for a week so I haven't been back in the garage to cut the plywood and whatnot to build the console's base box.
