No rush, still have a long way to go on the outside before I start inside. Just wondered if anybody had any good pictures of how/where the shelf under the dash mounts & how to mount the console to it? Have a gauge package console to replace the other one when I start on the interior (next year?) & just want some pictures of what goes where. Got a shelf from the Pigg Penn when we rescued BlackBird, nowhere near putting it in yet.

These give you the general idea (again, from the EVO Wiki parts manuasl):

The center console is attached primarily to the floor.

Nice, don't see the vents in that shelf. Will that make a difference? Just thought of something, are there hoses to those vents & where do they hook up IF it has them? Haven't looked at anything close yet, was just trying to get it OUT of the Pigg Penn. Just threw all the parts in the back & took off. The console just sits there? Thought it was mounted to the shelf somehow? Currently have the NO gauge console, floor mounting would be the same I expect. Was concerned because I thought it mounted (screws, whatever) to the shelf.

Looks like I need to find 2 of #4 hoses then. Are they something that can be bought generic (x inch I.D. by x feet long?). Looks like they just slip on, no clamps needed?

Yeah, they usually are sold in bulk to be cut off, or in shorter lengths that you cut to fit. Usually no clamps.

Flex duct hose. Kind of like a paper/fabric covered spring. Not sure if its ID or OD. The parts book did not say. Probably ID. I guess you will need to measure your inlets.
