Default Here is what I did today on my 1985 Jag

Since I replaced my front seats, I kept the back portion of the seat's upholstery and covered the area around the shifter and switches with the exact color as the rest of the upholstery. To compensate for the thicker material on the console, the rubber gasket around the shifter was steeped in hot water to make it more pliable. I also redid my headliner. it was all unglued and drooping down. The picture does not show the actual color (black) because of the sunlight and because I am not a photographer. The headliner was easy to remove because I had all the seats out. It comes out through the rear door if you bend it carefully. What do you guys think about the console?
Tomorrow? Fuel tank removal.

the console panel looks good in the same Biscuit color as the rest of the upholstery.

It does look good in a matching color. I would've been tempted to omit the ash trays.


Mine are full of change!! Quarters to the left, all else to the right1
