    i finished my center concole (pics)

    That's right fellas, my center console is all finished. Actually, I finished it like a week ago, but I've been busy with work and school and stuff. It came out good, I think.

    Here it is before the I started painting, all sanded and smooth.


    Heres the first layer, it's a textured paint that I used to get a kinda ruff surface.



    And now here it is after the color layer.



    The ultimate test, success!


    And here it is in my car.



    So what does every body think? I kinda think it looks like a big chunk of baby poop. I'm thinking about giving it a darker shade of brown, but only on top. Kinda like a two tone thing.

    Tell me what you think.

    my HU could not fit in the space were the originial is withough hacking up the dash, it's too old i guess. So i left it it there. Plus, it'll still be able to play though the stock speakers (which i'll leave in there too). That way I can play the stock radio, then the stereo and derectly compair which one is better, and by better i mean waaaaayyyyyy better.

    and the textured paint is callled textured millstone and it's by decorative effects.

    I'd guess about 65 hours (alot of sanding).

    What color do you think I should go with?

    very nice job. If i were u I would make it lighter rather than darker. Or actually it depends I gess. If u make it darker it will match the regular console. If u make it lighter it will match the carpet. maybe darker would be better.

    I was thinking the color of the plastic under the dash, that dark brown chocolaty color. What do you think about that?
