I'm trying to get a setup similar to the one shown below. I need something to fill the shifter hole, as well as the terrain selector knob. Currently mine is a black hole into the guts of the console.

The shifter 'hole' already looks like it has been addressed.

This picture appears to show a 3d printed 'shifter well' that some users have utilized to fill the void. it's the best option I've seen, but have never found any drawings to have it duplicated. Does your console have the leather trim for the shifter or just a hole there? If you have the leather, there is a bracket that the leather affixes to - you can plastic weld a flat black piece of plastic to the bracket and snap it back in to delete the shifter hole and it mounts up nice and flat to the 'chrome' trim.

If you don't have the leather/bracket, I don't have any recommendations for you :)

Ok so the console shown is mine.... I did not have 3-D printer or plans, so I sort of made my own. I used layers of plastic sheet sectioned together, but if I did it again I would have used wood, to get nice striping. Use the top as your guide then just cut out that shape in each layer, glue the stack together and add bottom. Not that hard and ends up functional.

Really interesting idea Eric! How did you affix the stacked/shaped final product to the console? Did you use the clip in retainer?

There is or was a member here who used a 3D printer to make a similar item to that shown in the picture.
