New here with a console question

Hi folks, looking for knowledge on Camaros and was directed to your site, seems a lot like the one I hang out on over at trifive.com I am going to use an auto shifter from a 69 Camaro in my 57 Belair. I bought a new shifter, cable and trim, now just need to make the cut out and mounting for the console.


My question is does anyone have a drawing of how all the trim, lighting and shifter indicators go???? Does it look like I have all the needed pieces?


Oh yeah and a shot of the car that its going in


Thanks Randy

Yes, the rubber pieces will fill in the gaps... I used little grease on the edges for the break in as the shifter can sometimes snag the rubber.

Yes, need the rubber seals.

Great looking 57
My first car was a 51 Chevy Delux (I think Dad wanted it more than I did)

Re: New here with a console question

Thanks guys for the info on the rubber gaskets and the compliments on the car. I have to say that the 69 Camaro has always been my second favorite car (sorry), but I had a 57 when I was a kid and now I'm just trying to relive that childhood thing Always wanted to get a Camaro, but never had the bucks back then, settled for a couple of Nova's though

The black plate that fits under the shifter indicator seems to puzzle me, as doesn't it block the light from getting to the indicator, or is there a space between them?

Oh the 57 has a 12 bolt 68 Camaro posi with 4.11's, now I just need a Camaro clip in the front, oh I will just settle for the R&P I have up there

Re: New here with a console question

The light from the 2 bulbs that fit in the metal piece still gets in and lights up the numbers/print just fine ...

Re: New here with a console question

Thanks Matt, I see how that will work now.

I ordered the rubber gaskets and the four main screws from a place in LA since its closer to me. Measured out the plate and made a templet so now I just need to figure exactly where I want the shifter in the console and I'm good to go I also got the wiring harness and neutral lockout so i think I have it covered.

Thanks again guys for the comments, if you ever need anything for a 57 let me know

Randy

Re: New here with a console question

Figured I better follow up here since you guys were such a big help. I got the shifter all installed after getting the parts you mentioned on here. Now the console is done, other than the carpet and vinyl on it. Added the stereo, air vents and cup holders as well as some courtesy lights and cell phone power plugs.



Thanks for the help

Randy
