Hi all, I just got a ‘68/69 console for my ‘69..... but there is some damage to the front cross pieces. (See pic below)

Is there anybody here who could make some really careful/accurate tracings of just the front sections that are broken/missing compared to yours?  I can re-create plastic but need to at least have patterns to work with.
PM me back....
Thanks in advance

Mine was busted up as well and did a repair with Plastex.  I have it installed now, but below is a pic of the flange, I'll see if I have any more pics on my old phone

I have it assembled and installed, so hard to get a tracing.  Pics below might help. (the black console is not mine, just pics I had for reference when I had mine out)

I’ll compare these with mine, and the take some pics so you can tell if there’s anything else I’m missing 

Thanks!

the diagram is great.... it shows me the missing components, but I need to get the missing/broken plastic repaired first before anything else can be attached.  I need patterns yo repair the main structure at the front first.... that’s where I need drawings, tracings, measurements, etc.... so I can re create the missing areas first.

Thanks
