That is pretty nice job you did there. It looks like it goes right along with the curve of the seat nicely. How long did it take you to make? What materials did you use?
I have been contemplating buying a console myself, and like yours, I have the short space because of the 5-speed shifter. I looked at console today, but not sure how it would work when shifting into 4th or reverse.
If you were able to make another one of those consoles, how much would it cost you? In looking at it, I would be interested in getting one if you could make it, maybe slightly different that this one.
