First, if you think you can do the console yourself, I'd suggest you do.
Finding a good used one is very hard (especially for the old GTVs) and they cost alot.
My suggestions to you are:
CLEAN the console very very thoroughly before you begin. Strip all the old vinyl,
then use paint thinner to clean the residues of glue etc.
Then you should give the console a good once over with fine sanding paper, so that
the new vinyl will stick. Ofcourse if you need to make any repairs do it now,
any good 2-part epoxy will do.
If I am not mistaken the original vinyl is still available but it is not cheap (I don't
know if you want to go concours but if you do just know that it is possible).
Cut the vinyl much bigger than the console (better that then to make a mistake and
then start all over again).
The best glue to use is spray-on glue. Work slowly while sort of "caressing" the vinyl
onto the plastic.
After it's stuck on there, leave about 1" material so you could wrap it around
the edge later.
If all this seems too hard, take the console to an upsholstery shop, but DO clean
it up yourself, I doubt they will do it as well as you do.
The older GTV consoles are quite straight-forward and much easier to do than
the newer consoles who have bumps, corners and curves which are harder to trace.
As for the veneer, I think you can buy ready-made stuff and just cut it using the old
one as template.
Any other questions I will gladly answer.
