Re: thinking about custom center console

What is that console in the first pic?

Looks like something you could use as a starting-point, then reinforce and shape with panels of MDF or Lexan, then maybe fiberglass where needed to get whatever additional shaping, then upholster over the entire thing..
That's the way I imagine going at it...


I wish I could do the same..
I want to relocate my head unit so it's closer and easier to see the display.


If I could do that (relocate my stereo) then I want to make a slide-out mount to hide my Garmin GPS in the double-DIN space in the dash and disguise it to look like a factory radio.



A cool cupholder I saw in a '12 Malibu I rented a few months ago:
The dual cupholders were stationary, but they were recessed deep into the console.
There was sliding cover that closed over them when not in use.
The cover was very low-pro and sleek, but the design was like an old-fashioned roll-top-desk cover.

I'm sure there are others out there that are just as clever or more so, but I don't get much time in other vehicles, that one was just one I saw recently.

Re: thinking about custom center console

Less talk and more doing
Yeah, really.

As I've often previously moaned and complained, I'm usually far from home for months at a time. It's a real adventure modding your truck in a motel parking-lot.

At the moment though I'm on a roll...
I've gotten way more done to my truck in the past 3 months that in the previous seven years..
OF course I had to pay someone else to install my rear sway-bar, my QA1 coilovers four weeks ago, my lo-pro crossmember last week, etc.

Next week is my efan install.. I'm pumped.


Thing is, I'd like to find out which is the console in that frst pic...
Looks like I may have a week or so at home next month.
I've got a growing list of do-it-yourself mods for that time...
I'd really like to get a start on a console build though.
