Home brew fiberglass stereo, center console and kick panel pods

    Hi all,
    After getting my new motor and trans in, I decided I'd like to listen to some tunes while driving. I liked the larger screen stereos, but didn't want to cut the dash, or go with a motorized screen. I made a template and after a few tweeks of the template this is what came out.
    After that I decided a center console would make a nice area to run all the amp wiring to the trunk. So the stereo and center console are two separate pieces. The speaker pods were a masonite skeleton and back, with a mdf ring attached to the face, then I stretched some heavy black fleece around the frame, stapled and soaked in fiberglass resin.
    I'll probably re-paint the consoles to match, when I paint the car.

    If I did it, it would look like Homer Simpson's spice rack.

    Great job.

    Thanks, that's too funny.
    This was my first attempt at anything like this. And wasn't easy. I do admire the MTF stuff , but I'm a tinkerer and like a challenge too.

    Right? Beer gets warm too fast between the legs...BURRRP! I got cheap after the stereo equipment. But I like these led ones and they'd be easy to add. Seasense Blue LED Lighted Stainless Cup Holder 50091042 _ eBay.jpg

    They're on eBay, and I think they're listed as a boat part.
