Need help with center console installation
I am replacing the folding center seat in my truck with a center console. The console came with the mounting bolts (4) but my truck body did not have the threaded holes the bolts go into. In stead are octogon shaped holes that take whatever type of hardware goes in it.
I went to ford and special ordered the mounting "rivits" and nuts and when I went to install them I think they are the wrong ones. The rivits are round and they go into the hole and when you tighten the nut onto it the rivit is supposed to spread out under the truck body locking into place. The problem I have is the rivit just spins, obviously because the hole is octogon shape and the rivit is round.
Anyone ever do this swap before and have to install new hardware? I asked for hardware for a '99, are other years different? I think the console came out of an '02
Any help is appreciated,
