Even though it is still too hot in the garage (even with my window A/C on) I continue to see what might need to be done on the Beaumont. And I was looking at the dealer photo of my console ...
Well poop. Sure looks like something is missing, should not see the mechanism, eh?
Is this the part I need (called a console slider)?
Gonna be a pain to install? Suggestions?

I know that the '64 Parisienne Custom Sport console slider is easy to install. I had one off/on just last weekend while removing a console.

Yes, it would be VERY easy to make. I don't know if it is made of Lexan though (it is almost a 1/16" thick).

Ya, cut to size the "black divider thingy" that is found inside some 3-ring binders ... it would work perfect.
My sliders (I have a couple originals, but unlike Dave's pictured style) are the same "divider thingy" material ... but not Bakelite.
This picture shows how thin the slider is:

I would install it pebble side down, less friction.
