intrest in custom center consoles?
Monday, May 22, 2006 1:38 PM
whats up, i just finished my first "custom" center console, and i think it turned out pretty dam good. the new owner kinda of rushed it into the car, and it still needed minor filler work here or there. what i am trying to do, is i am getting ready to start a second, but i was wanting to see if there is an intrest in for a small fee, you send me your center console, and i will do this for you, sort of on the side to give me somthing to do. i have a few pictures of the first one almost done, but i will try to get alot more pictures of this console. basically the sky is the limit as far as ideas, the first one i mounted one guage pod on the passanger side of the console, i think it really sets the console off. but if you have any ideas throw them at me and we will see what we can come up with. i am willing to attempt anything. but like i said i am just trying to test the intrest here, and like i said, it wont be on a large scale for the reason of just giving me somthing to do in my spare time and help some people out at the same time.

how about molding them in in the little pocket in front of the cupholders?

there is a clearance/visability issue in the pocket below the hvac. i am currently playing with one, putting the gauges in place of the cup holders. just to see what we can get. any other ideas????

I've thought of putting a gauge there. Looks good

i'd say get the second one done, do a good job on it, post some quaility pics so people can tell wether or not your fiberglass work is flawless or flawed and post some prices of what you can afford to do the work for. then you will know who's serious or not.

What about fiberglassing a piece to the console that fits in between the pocket behind the cupholder up to the HVAC. On mine it looks like there is plenty of room there for two gauges but that piece on the bottom of the dash got broken off before i got the car so that might have added some clearance. But if you angled the gauges up a little bit and had them to where they were more towards the right i think you could fit two gauges there. But then again my center console is a 99 z not one of the newer ones with two cupholders.
Just an idea. And if the second one looks good then i would get it done to mine to.
I think you will have alot of people interested that dont have any fiberglass experience if you can do a good job for a decent price.

well i will keep everyone updated, i got distracted with a much of parts ariving today, hopefully i will have everything installed by tommarow night, and then i can jump back on the console. i will take a look at between the 2 before i go ahead and glass this one, because it sounds like its worth looking into. the only issue i can forsee is not being able to reach the screw in the front pocket...

maybe its just the pics but it looks like the angle on the two cupholder pods seems to be pointing at were your knee would be.

I like the gauges in the cup holder thingy. How much would you charge to do just the cup holder things, not the one on the side? I'm going to be getting dual needle air pressure gauges and they don't fit in the Lotek pillar pod.

from a sitting position in the car they are aimed at me, straight on and i am 5 11 if that helps. basically what i am looking at, assuming that there is nothing extremely different, i am looking at about 75-100 per console, and then you supply the console. but i can only do one at a time, since i am doing this in my off time between work and school. but this one took about 2 weeks or so, with alot of changes from the last. personally i would like to go with 1 in hte closest cupholder for the one that will go in my car, this one is going in for the big show at rockingham, so if anyone is there, you are welcome to find my car and take a look. but after the show, this console will be fore sale. if i can get an offer here cool, other wise it will end up on ebay. so just let me know.
