Console Lid

My hats off to Texasbaehr for his console popper idea. Wish I had seen it before I took the route I did. I came up with an idea for this problem too. However, mine was a little more involved. Although, I did have mine apart doing some other things when I came up with the idea. I used a spring attached to the hinge of the lid. Like I said, mine was already apart. But, to do it would require the passenger seat to be removed, waterfall removed, console top removed, and passenger console side removed. So I would say his idea is a hell of a lot easier to do. Anyway, I thought I would go ahead and post some pictures.

Nice solution Doc!
I also looked at mounting a spring on the hinge but as you point out the installation is a lot of effort. I compromised on a simple easy to install one.
Why Chevy didn't mount a $.10 spring on the hinge baffles me!

Mine was very simple. I glued a piece of floor matting in the rear passenger corner. It does compress with time, but I leave it unlatched when it is in the garage.
I had the material and glue, cost me about 5 minutes.
I do admire the professional look of the others though.

I got it off eBay

I believe you can get them in different color threads. Search the sellers products.

FYI....this is not a bolt on item. You have to remove the original "skin" and replace it with the new one.

I like your idea.
I also like the other shots of interior you are hiding grim us.
Chrome painted interior door handle (only know this from previous posts) and the correct color door handle cups.
Did you paint any other interior parts?

I am trying to do something similar, already placed order from Mickey's squeeze (Debbie) for a red shift knob with chrome from Floyd's collection.
I know I can't go wrong with the quality of Floyd's stuff and doing business with Mike and his wife. Best of all it supports Floyd's estate. Just wish I could have bought from Floyd at Maggie Valley,

She might have some left, couldn't pass up the chance to get one with my interior becoming a combination of chrome and body color

Again I really like the work you've done

I have been doing some upgrades and changes to the interior. I hope to be done by this weekend and have everything back together. I will follow up with some pictures.
