As much trouble as you're going through, why not trade for the Riv you really want?

I don't know exactly what measurement you are looking for, but here are a few:

console width between the seats is about 7".
console width at the dash is about 10".
console length at floor is about 44".

i only want measurements of tight were the shifter is, just that area, it cant be that big

and rivs are hard to find im my area, and im doing custom made parts. i enjoy doing these projects, thats why im putting so much money in to it. if i didnt do these projects i would go crazy cuz , i wouldn't be able to show my ideas. and in the end its all worth it, driving and getting the thumbs up , going to a carshow and having people tell you how great of a job you did. so there my anwser jack the R

8" in length.
6.25" wide at the front.
4.5" wide at the back.

This is the flat area on top of the console where the shifter is.

PostSubject: can i ask a favor   interior swap questions - Page 2 EmptySat Dec 22, 2007 10:04 am

i need ur input on my idea. should i make it a 2+2 coupe( seats 2 front 2 rear_, i will need to do a full custom council from the back seats and have it flow up to the front, im not sure what i should. im sending the interior out end of January beginning February. as for my color i have decided to go with black leather,grey suede inserts, with Ferrari red stitching, im having all the LEDS in the gauges and the steering wheel and the HVAC changed to red,but now its time for my question

with my dash im not sure what to do. i thinking about fiber glassing it, but that would take away from the luxurious part so im not sure what to do about that, i want it to seam like high up lux, please keep in mind im having a custom wood grain dash made. its gonna be like the color of (Jack the R) dash. but it wont be the fake wood its gonna be real wood, i have a friend that work at high end furniture store and he was tellin me about how they have the scraps that are in pretty good shape, so were going to do that,

but im having the problem what should we do the the dash and door panels and ect.

any help would be great

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

and thanks for all the help and a great fourm

Maybe make a thin pad, like a desk blotter, for the dash out of black leather, with red stitching. Cover the sides of the center console with the same leather, maybe pieced in some pattern to get the gray suede in there somehow. With the red stitching.

In other words, maybe don't do a wood dash at all.

The door panels (at least the inserts) could be covered similarly.

Since it's the dash and door panels maybe use a propmeric vinyl 'pleather' instead of leather, it will be more consistent, cover the hard contours better and with the real stitching it will be tough to tell the difference...
