Can you snap a pic of your interior? A lot of people have converted the explorer center console to hold a manual, but I believe you have the last year before they switched the interior so it would not work...

Even though your seats are mustang could you not still use the shifter console and center console out of a ranger with buckets?

Just out of curiosity do you know how different the 94 to the newer dashes are? I think 94 was the last year of the old dash set-up.

Also can you fiberglass onto plastic??

Is there storage in any of those center consoles?

I had my amp under the old one. the current one has nothing under it. but plan are to recover it all grey and make the top "arm rest" area hinged at the back for storage inside. thinking a 360 or something along those lines.
