Re: Built a new console

That came together really nice. Can you actually disengage from park with a drink in the cupholder, or does it hit your knuckles?

Re: Built a new console

Tons of room on the shiftier, and the cup holders came from Summit.The fiber glass can be a pain, if you haven't worked with it before.Biggest problem is the curves and angles,need to mix the resin right to have plenty of time to work, before it start's to harden.

Re: Built a new console

I thought about making a glove box there, but I'm think in the future it will be a nice place for a 10" sub for the stereo.!! Thanks all , for the kind comments.

kids wanted power in the back seat for their electronics, so I added 5 USB ports, and 2 plugs for computers, game console, etc.

Re: Built a new console

Any chance you have the measurements for the wood around still? I've been looking to do exactly this for my truck.
