Console Features

 During an extended road-trip in upstate New York, Tony Revetti (SP 1085) realized there was something he needed in his Mk III. He built a custom fit, high quality center console incorporating key features for driver and passenger, as well as provide additional storage for the odds and ends that tended to litter our cars during longer road-trips.

This excellent console is now available to all owners through the Second Strike Store. The console offers a striking OEM appearance. Incorporating a contour matching leather armrest that is professionally dye-matched to the Mk III's black leather. A smooth transition to the interior is provided by  matching the console's front/ rear angles with that of the Mk III. Original style carpet material is utilized on front and side surfaces to enhance the OEM appearance of the entire assembly.


Hinged Lid with Internal Storage

Although out of sight, the console's interior is also ready to perform. Components such as the self-aligning magnetic latch system, heavy duty stainless steel hinge assembly and multiple applications of vinyl coating ensure the interior can standup to the rigors of every day use.

The console is 16" long, 6" wide and 6.5" high with 250 cubic inches of storage.


Console with 2.5 lb Fire Extinguisher

A step down at the rear of the console provides space for a fire extinguisher to be mounted on the rear bulkhead if you so desire. Fire extinguishers using the Halotron agent are recommended such as the HalGuard HG100C (1.4 lb, 10 high) and the HalGuard HG250C (2.5 lb, 15 high).

The Console works well with the original shifter and with the Jordan Shifter, Track Shifter, and Tall Boy Shifter.

If you ride with the tonneau cover folded behind the seats, there is room for the folded tonneau as well.

The console is attached with either industrial grade Velcro (included) or screws (included). Complete installation instructions are included.
