Drilled holes for the console. Added aluminum angles per advice of defender.com. Put everything together for a dry fit. Amazingly it fit the first time, thanks to my precision engineering method of cardboard templates. Tomorrow I'll add 3M 5200 to finish it.
To prevent corrosion between the aluminum angles and the stainless bolts, I added flanged nylon washers so there is no contact between different metals

Added a rubber boot for the steering and battery cable to go through.
Plenty of space on front of the console.
