i'm tearing out my crusty old grey carpet and replacing it with tight black stuff. during the teardwon, i hit a snag:

the console is stuck and i can't figure out how to get it off...i thought i removed all the screws (inside the armrest box and a few other) but i guess not. did i read here that they're stuck with glue stuff that you have to hit with a heat gun? here's a top view...

also:

i need good quality carpet for not-a-lot-o'-$ ... suggestions?

did that. two long bolts are in the storage box under the armrest. the front of the console is what seems to be stuck.

What sslowride was trying to tell you is that there are two MORE bolts in the front. They are under a rubber liner in that little area under the ashtray.

i'm looking for something a little sturdier, like internet-ordered. i'm told by an interior guy that has since gone out of business that i can expect to spend around $200 ... anyone know where i can get it?

Bob is suggesting Right, you can't go with anything any thicker than that, or it won't contour to the Console properly, and will wind up looking like Crap.....

Board discount?

Check rockauto.com for a good buy on carpet. I got my Crown Vic carpet from them, and will get my Caprice wagon carpet from them soon. Be sure to use the board discount.
I'm ordering about 400$ worth of parts from them and have been looking for a discount code, but I think I deleted the email. Do they have a discount for forum memebers?
