    New centre console

    Its in my project diary but i thought i'd whack a few pics up here for anyone who wants to comment. A little different to the monaro pod idea, probably been done before but im yet to see it

    Progress Pics...
















    And at night...


    Finally happy with the interior bar to little bits im waiting on

    Theres more pics in my project diary as the console is actually airbrushed, its just hard to see in these pics so theres a few close ups in my PD. The airbrushing looks a little sh1t on camera as it was hard to pickout with the flash.

    Comments welcome I don't expect it to be to everyones taste

    I'm not too sure on that one buddy....
    Think it would have looked better in white or something?

    Black just reminds me of the lower spec'd astra interiors...

    But its a very well done job

    Not so sure on that, looks very 'stuck on', which i know it is, but the Monaro doesnt look as large and more OEM imho.

    D2NY G that mirror cost a small fortune to ship over from the US lol didn't expect many to like it on here tbh. Thanks for the kind words

    chr15g - i see what you mean about black being similar to the lower spec. I didnt want to go gold as it would have looked tacky and finding a match to the alcanatara would have been head work So i settled for gloss black.

    redhotpanther - i didnt want to go the Monaro pod route as the gauge holes are to small for the 52mm gauges really and although looks real good, its done to death. I have a voltmeter in the boot, again centrally sat but upside down to the dash idea, this being the reason i went for a central position as it kind of matches

    Ohh and thanks Dave.

    Pity as it looks a hell of a lot nicer than the one you have obviously spent an equal amount of time and care fitting.

    Sorry, but unlike many of your other mods, this one has missed the mark in terms of looks.

    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
