Re: digital dash - shift light

I've thought about adding an overhead console on my GTA. How hard would it be to mount since my car didn't originally come with it?

4 screws and a wiring harness, and of course the console it self , the hard top model is different then the console made for t-tops .

Re: digital dash - shift light

Oh yeah. I noticed that when I was looking at them. Where do the screws go and what type are they. I'd just be afraid it'd fall on me while I'm driving if I didn't get it secured good to the headliner. That'd probably be a bad thing. Do you know if they come with a wiring harness or is it something that will have to be fabricated? Then again, is that for a stock one or one of your "custom" ones? I'm not too concerned with it all lighting up unless it is supposed to.

Re: digital dash - shift light

you can usually pick one up on ebay ,,, but someone on here,, may have one and a harness and the special 4 screws . i'm unsure if the hardtops have the mounting holes or not, ask around ,,,, and the flashlight with firebird written on it is the hard-to-come-by item! good luck patrick !

I'm going to have to e-mail the source I found it at and see what all it comes with. I take it by what you said, the overhead console does light up from the factory?

Hmmm...in the pictures you sent me, is that how it looks from the factory (lit up) or are those the mods that you've done to it?

Cool. I got a hold of the person that has them and he said he has everything that you need to install it. SWEETNESS! I might have me one before to long. Except it won't be as spiffy as yours is Doug.

Re: digital dash - shift light

If I understood how to wire stuff better I'd probably give it a try. I'm lucky I can do what I can do and that isn't a lot (with electronics).
