    I found them on line for $28 through GM. I got my console with one broken attach point on right hand side cover. Was gonna order a new side (seller refunded me $25), then thought, I'm just gonna epoxy it together, not like I am ever going to take the side off, heck our original consoles are one piece...right? Hopefully start trial fit here in the next few days. It looks like my shifter will come up where the tray is vs the shifter hole so I may have to modify. Would like to use parking brake handle hole for cell phone, I may try to fabricate something so when you place the phone into the slot it plugs into a charging point, sort of like a docking station.

    I have the LS3 / T56 Magnum. How are y'all using the stock shifter knob and what shift stick works best?

    Does anyone know if it's worth buy the gauges? Can they be used on a second?

    The gauges are controlled by the computer. I looked all over the internet and decided not to try it.

    I was gonna try to use it also. Not to that point yet. CAMeeks keep us updated. Really interested in switching it up.

    If you are using a lst56 then the 2010+ stock shifter knob should work. For my t5 shifter and knob I used a big grommet that slides over the shifter stick then the boot over that so the grommet holds the boot up vs falling down.

    Can anyone send me some overall dimensions? I would like to compare it with the original console from my 73.

    Greatly appreciated.
