Center console

Hello - I just purchased a low mileage 88 GTA (5K miles). It is in great condition overall. However the center console area is pulling away from the shift plate area. What is the best way to correct this issue? Thanks for the help!

Re: Center console

I trim off about 1/8" of the hard plastic, put the glue on and clamp with thin wood strips to spread the load.
Y do I trim the hard plastic? Because the outer soft part shrinks over time, this makes it fit better and make the repair last longer.

Re: Center console

Any good contact cement should be able to hold up. I'd get one that can handle hot and cold extremes as well.

I want to see pictures of this car. Did anyone else notice 5K miles?
