Ahh. Miss the sound of that playback head flipping around. I still have a home stereo receiver with a built in 8 track player. Got a little suitcase carrier full of 8 track takes too. Elvis rules!

Hard to fit that bypass plug in there next to the Muntz 8-tack with the separate vacuum tube amp. Doesn't leave much room fro the Glock, spare clip, and the....paraphernalia.

Cool

So I've read all 5 pages of this thread, and must have missed what the final cost for this upgrade would be. I've read through and caught something about ordering screws too. So I'll be looking for the screws, cover plate in carbon fiber "look", and the compartment. I would plan on holding driving gloves, and possibly some pens...maybe a detail brush. The glove box is maxed out right now.

Can I get the Black Chequered Cover for the SC?

Hi all - read through all of the thread and can't seem to find this answer. I have an '18 with the black chequered dash cover - which I really like. I'd love to possibly install the SC, but I'd prefer to still have the black check.

Everything I read in this thread talks about all the other colors, especially piano black - but I don't see any mention of Black Chequered that will fit the SC.

Is there a part or did that color come along after they removed the SC?

Thanks!
