i'd rather eat my water bottle than take apart the center console again just to search for a ziptie

Glad I'm not the only person who has nightmares!!....;)....😬

I thought it was a pretty easy job. Even if you end up dropping screws or something into the shifter area (or zip ties, in this thread's case), you're taking the console out anyways so you'll recover them.

I thought the A pillar removal and dealing with the airbag straps was a lot worse than removing the center console.

I really hated doing the A pillar wiring for the front dash cam so I decided there was no way I was going to do the rear install as well. In my experience headliners don't like to go back in once you remove them. :LOL:

Wiring a front and rear took me like 15 minutes to do both. I didn't remove a single panel except for maybe 1 in the trunk.

Yeah doing via the floor sides...having a GSW & planning on doing it in the roof to keep the cables away from the mass of power cables in the lower looms is what I planned on doing...
