Krylon Fusion spray paint. Best spray paint ever to use on whatever. No need to prime either. Simply spray on, let dry and done

Ryan...did you ever get your console bolted in?

Before I realized this is a 10 month old thread, I was gonna say that I "mounted" my shorty console without "mounting" it. Too lazy to drill through the carpet & floorboard and deal with that front mounting piece and get everything perfectly centered and all that crap, so I came up w/ my own method. I have 2 whiteboard erasers wedged vertically between the console and the side of the seats, on each side of the console. The erasers are the perfect thickness to stabilize the console so it doesn't move around or anything. I have a regular cab so no one ever repositions the seats on the tracks (which would mess up the positioning of the erasers....so this may not be ideal for extended cab guys who are always sliding their seats forward and back). Ghetto yes, but the thing is in there solid.
The upside to this is that it takes about 10 seconds to remove the console from the truck and about a minute to "reinstall" it
