So, what y'all think? I'm really happy with everything, the console was a challenge for me but I think it blends into the style of the car nicely. I got to drive the car yesterday for the first time since Nov, it was loading up pretty bad but it seemed to clear up once I got home, I took it to the muffler shop and had the exhaust done....some on here talked about how great the Summit race mufflers were and I must say, they sound KILLER!!

Hey Mr. WW,

Hope you are well.

That looks AWESOME. Very professional looking. I for one would be interested in the "how to" aspects of what you've done. Ever consider writing a tech article? Very nice!

That looks great! The architecture and style look proper for your car. How did you do the chrome trim around the wood inlay's?

Seeing that I'm a pretty simple person, what is involved in doing that? I'm glad to help.

That's what we like, simple stuff. :) Just write up how you used the cardboard to mock it up and how you used the cardboard as a template/pattern and cut it out, how you put it together, screws, nails, "L" brackets? Any sealer or just bare would and then whatever kind of cloth you used to stretch over it etc. I know nothing of doing this kind of thing so even the cloth is unknown to me.

Use the pictures you took for the steps you made like you did here basically. Just more detail I guess but doesn't have to be so indepth that we get lost in the instructions. You know how some of us are with instructions...who needs instructions? If that makes any sense. Brand of fiberglass or whatever it was you used, what you used for the cupholders etc.

Then we can get admin's attention and maybe they can get it on the site for one of the tech articles. I think it would go over great cause so many don't have a console and would like to know how it could be done, they could variate from yours to their own liking but would give them an idea of what is involved. Best of all it would show it can be done and has been done.

I'm not sure how they do the articles here but believe it is done up on like Microsoft Word and emailed to them to add to the site. I'l PM them and find out.

One awesome interior. It does not look stock at all. It looks totally custom. It looks like your personal idea of what an interior should look like and man, that is a great personal idea!
