    Fiberglass center console w/ 12"

    So the project started when a friend of mine wanted some bass in her 02 avalanche. with no extra space in the cabin and not wanting to do a blowthrough, i decided on replacing the center console with a new construction that would hold a 12" and have space for the cupholders. i decided to venture into fiberglass and here's the result.

    3/1/08






    2 layers done

    did I notice that you have some of the seats still in, and not protected? are you not concerned about getting resin on them by mistake? Other than that it looks great and keep the pics coming



    Mine is bigger than yours!

    i had all the seats out for the first 5 of 7 layers. then we got tired of bolting and unbolting so we simply left them unbolted but moved them back. hard to see in this pics but the seats are about a foot back from where they normally sit.
    and ya rev its a fun challenge. first time ever using glass.

    Re: Fiberglass center console w/ 12"

    In for more pics. Looking nice so far. BTW Isnt it B/S with how much catalyst they supply you with that fiberglass resin . I had to buy 3 extra tubes of it when I was doing my kick pods .
