Im currently working on a custom center console for my 1996 GL. Just started painting today. I was wondering if anyone else had ever done/seen anything like this or was planning on doing something similar. Ill have pictures in the next few days
SHOOT! if ida known that that's what the '99 console looked like, I probably woulda just got one of those! But it has been a lot of fun making this one, I've never done anything like it. And as far as patience goes... It's being stretched pretty thin right now! was almost done with paint and ended up having to sand it basically all the way back to wood (mdf in this case). I just want to be done!!!!
Heres what it looks like finished. I got so fed up with my painting abilities and decided that after sanding back to wood twice i was just gonna wrap the darn thing in vinyl! Which I'm thinking ended up better than pain would have
Instead of paint, I would recommend just cover it with the same color/style carpet. Other than that it looks great. I think it takes up a lot of room, but you obviously could do a lot of things with that hollowed space, like install a car-puter...
