Points of interest:

Your centre roof console will be designed to suit your specific model vehicle. It will neatly follow the contours of your hoodlining and will be the ideal width to suit the distance between your sunvisors. The length of the console takes into account the mounting system for the console and the shape of the cabin. When calculating the depth of the console we allow for maximum headroom and a clear view for the rear vision mirror. As no two model vehicles are the same our "vehicle specific" consoles are the best available.

In addition to being "vehicle specific" we also "custom build" each console to suit your requirements - nobody else does that! We adjust the shape of the base of the console to suit your radio(s) storage or lighting requirements. When custom building your console we can build a slim line console for maximum headroom or a deeper console for maximum storage. We can make the console's radio housing(s) as small as your radio(s) will allow, providing more headroom and moving your radio(s) closer to the windscreen for better access. Another advantage of this versatility of design, most modern radios have a LCD (liquid crystal display) screen. It is easier to read the LCD when you are looking square onto the screen. Whenever possible, we change the angle on the console's facia panel to suit the radio being fitted.

Following are some sketches to show you some of the possible variations available for centre roof consoles.

Low profile centre roof consoles (1 to 6)
Deep profile centre roof consoles (7 to 11)

 

*S.A.O. - Storage/Access Opening
An oval shaped hole with an elasticised vinyl flap. The flap keeps the stored items in and most of the red dust out. The S.A.O. also allows access to fuses or to V.S.W.R. in a radio. The S.A.O. does cost extra bickies.

 


MICROPHONE CURLY CORD RETAINER

A piece of "one wrap" hook and loop tape is supplied with each roof console (one retainer for each radio) to prevent your microphone curly cord from dangling and blocking your view. Simply screw this retainer onto the console in a suitable position between the radio and the microphone clip, then wrap the tape around the curly cord. If you need the full length of the curly cord, the "one wrap" tape is easy to release and re-attach.


Fitting Instructions for the ST model:

STEP 1. Remove the interior light and the genuine plastic roof assembly.

STEP 2. In most cases the mounting bracket for the genuine roof assembly can remain in position. If the radio to be fitted in the front of the console is 190mm wide or less, leave this bracket in position. The two screw holes at the front of this bracket are utilised to hold the front of the roof console in place. Remove the two front screws in preparation for mounting the roof console.

If the radio is wider than 190mm, remove the bracket to allow the radio to fit into the roof space. This bracket can be removed without removing the hoodlining. The two rear mounting screws can be accessed through the hole in the hoodlining. These two screws can be removed by using a 10mm socket with a ratchet handle. After removing the bracket place a piece of foam rubber (or similar) between the hoodlining and the turret to hold the hoodlining in place.

STEP 3. Hold the console in position to check the fit. Make sure you have received the correct console, in good order, before cutting any holes in the console.

STEP 4. Remove the mounting bracket attached to the front of the console. Remove from this bracket the two console mounting screws that are held in position with masking tape (leave the masking tape intact). Remove the spectacle holder from the genuine roof assembly. Using the screws supplied with the console, mount the spectacle holder into the hole at the front of the console. Re-fit the console mounting bracket back onto the console. To allow screw driver access to the two front console mounting screws, two holes must now be drilled into the inner casing of the plastic spectacle holder. Using a 10mm diameter drill bit, drill two holes through the back of the spectacle holder in line with the two screw holes in the console's front mounting bracket. Replace the front console mounting screws back into position, ensure that they are held firmly by the masking tape.

STEP 5. Fit your radio(s) and accessories into the console - see the "instructions on installing a radio into a console" and the "radio fitting kit" supplied with the console. The radio mounted at the front of the console should be sitting at a 90 degree angle to the console's facia panel. In most cases the back of this radio will sit above the console.

STEP 6. Prepare the roof console to accept the genuine interior light. The interior light is earthed by one of the screws that hold the light onto the body of the vehicle. When this light is fitted ontot he console it needs to be earthed. Remoce the interior light from the vehicle. Open the 'console fitting kit' and remove the earth wire and pop rivet. Attached the earth wire to the top of the interior light by pop riveting the earth wire terminal onto the interior light earth terminal (i.e. the pop rivet fits into one of the screw holes). Drill two holes into the pastic base of the interior light so that the light can be screwed onto the console. The earth wire can be attached to the body of the vehicle by utilising one of the 30mm screws that hold the back of the console to the vehicle. Using the two 15mm screws supplied, attach the interior light to the console. Remove the interior light from the console to allow access to the consoles rear mounting screw holes. It is now a simple procedure to re-mount the interior light after the console is fitted.

STEP 7. Install the wiring and aerial lead(s) before fitting the console. Removal of the genuine roof assembly reveals an opening in the hoodlining. Remove the passengers side sunvisor (the passengers side is easier to work on, if the aerial is mounted on the driver's side you may prefer to follow the same procedure on the driver's side). Remove the grab handle and the plastic trim on the "A" pillar (the pillar between the windscreen and the front door). Pull down a section of the pinchweld (the rubber door seal) next to the "A" pillar. You now have access to run the wiring from the centre of the roof to under the dashboard. Pull your wiring across the roof above the hoodlining from the centre of the roof to the passenger's door. Be sure to leave enough spare wire to reach down to the seat. This will make it easier to connect your wiring to the radio(s) before fitting the console. The excess wire can be coiled up inside the console.

STEP 8. Place the console on the seat. Connect the wiring and check that the radio(s) and accessories are operational before installing the console.

STEP 9. Make sure the interior light wire is long enough to reach past the base of the console. A gentle pull will free up some extra length of this wire. In most cases it will be necessary to extend this wire.

STEP 10. Coil up any excess wire while lifting the console into position. Thread the interior light wire down through the hole in the console for the interior light. Press the console firmly onto the hoodlining. Ensure that all four mounting points line up with the screw holes in the vehicle. If the console does not fit neatly onto the hoodlining, the front radio may be touching part of the mounting bracket for the genuine roof assembly. Part of this bracket is a small steel tab with a captive nut attached. Move this tab out of the way by bending it forward.

STEP 11. Using the screws provided, attach the front of the console in position. Do not tighten the screws yet, this will allow the back of the console to move enough to line up the rear mounting screw holes.

STEP 12. Using the two 30mm x 12 gauge self tapping screws and the two washers supplied in the "console fitting kit", screw the back of the console to the original interior light mounting screw holes. The interior light earth wire supplied with the "console fitting kit" should be attached between the washer and the head of one of these two mounting screws. You will need a no.2 phillips head screw driver with a shaft at least 200mm long for a deep profile roof console or at least 150mm long for a low profile roof console (the longer the screw driver the easier it will be to fit the console).

STEP 13. Connect the interior light wiring plug. Re-mount the interior light onto the base of the console. Position the wiring so it won't be affected by the heat generated from the interior light globe.

STEP 14. Tighten up the front mounting screws.
