Fiberglassing is something I've been wanting to try for a long time but don't know anyone who can give pointers like where to even get the stuff. I have some wood working skills with a scroll saw. This center console looks professional. I think I would try a project like this since I'm having a hard time getting my jump seat black, What is the specs on the wood used? & The wood frame does remain in the console after finished & not like a mold that can be removed when the glass dries?
My old mustang if anyone has been in a fox body 87-93 mustang probably know on the center console there was an ashtray with a faulty door that never stayed closed nest to the e brake. I took a couple cup holder pieces I found & bondoed them in where the ash tray was looked good but not the right material.

I've worked with mdf before it is easy to use but usually the 3/4 is only available & that seems way to thick compaired to your pics, but I'll look arround other places to see what I find. Thanks for the leads

Outstanding! I'm planning to do something similar with my Burb but I'm going to hold off till I decide exactly how I'm going to modernize the interior.93 Suburban (Southern Slayer): TBI 350, 4L60E

i used 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch both were in stock at home depot and after everything it probably costed me about $350 the most expensive parts were the ipad cage that i bought from halosupercars and the linear actuator from firgelli both of those were about $100 a piece the materials were all cheap

Sweet thanks. I've been dealing with small town lumber yards, Home Depot is about 30 minutes away so I'll be checking there later on. I need to go sit in the truck now & see exactly what I would want to do. Don't worry I'm not going to copy your console exactly just maybe the basic shape lol I don't have an I pad. Well back to the drawing board.

I joined this forum so I could comment on this thread. Awesome work! I love the idea of a mount for my tablet (ASUS Transformer Prime).
It looks as if you used a CNC router to cut the parts, if not then you have a very good hand with a jigsaw.
I was looking for a new bench seat (1990 Silverado) and had tried a set of buckets but did not like them. Now I am rethinking the buckets.
I do have a CNC router table and the fiberglass skill to make one of these. You have inspired me, thanks.

Pretty darn nice! I like the way you incorporated the brackets/legs from the center seat. working with fiberglass gives you so much lead way and you're only restricted by your imagination. Believe me, learn a few tricks with glass and you won't want to work with anything else. considerable time and thought went into the project. Well done!2004 Silverado-4.3/AT/AC Work Edition-Clean Neat & Simple
