I just spent 3 hours in my very hot garage trying to install my full length console in my convertible. I removed the choke cable bracket and all the seats. I was able to test fit it in there without the support braket. Once I installed the metal support braket (area under the glove box), I cannot get the console in there. I can't see how it will fit under the dash and get over this bracket. The bracket will not install if the console is in place first, so what can I do? Also, the shift lever (4 speed) in the way also is a bit of a problem, but not as much as the clearance under the dash.
I have mass backed carpet w/jute over the factory style sound deadening mat. It was killer trying to get the bracket to even mount through all this, but I eventually got it done and tightened down.
