    Good work, did you also get the pipe work for the 'chiller'?.

    I like that. What bits do you need for that? is it a tricky job? Cost?

    I’ve managed to source same kit at an extremely good price and need to fit it, how complicated is it to fit and how long did it take you? Anything to watch out for?

    Thank you.

    Have a scan of a couple of the threads under this topic area, there are a few ‘how to / step by step’ descriptions of fitting the wider centre console.

    I would say the most challenging part is getting the transmission tunnel plastic cover cut down to the right size. If you cut away a little at the time then you will be fine. Mine isn’t the most tidy job, but I will go back and sort that out when I’m done with my other list of van jobs.

    Cut 50mm off from passenger side and the front edge, leaving the drivers side alone. Refit console with a couple of screws. Now mark the bottom edge. Remove cut again and refit

    Thank you for the information, I feel ashamed for trimming the wrong bit.

    Have a go yourself, follow this guide it really is simple. All the answer you will need are in this thread:
    Nic's Centre console swap

    Speak to @Pauly. Send him a PM with what you're after and he will see what he can do.

    the guy that carpeted and a few other bits and pieces did it for me, any convertor will get you the console and fit it, I wouldn't tackle it myself.
