    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.
