    I also decided to make a center console. I will have it upholstered to match the seat.

    You, KEVIN and Marten believe in "Pay Attention to the Detail" regardless what it takes to do it!

    Just amazing and thanks for sharing. The 'Console' & entire bed is looking really good!

    I love how you created your own form of Guide Coat. (Black primer with Grey over it!)

    Thanks Henry.

    You did not miss it this is the first time I posted it. I only recently fab that up. I did not want the radio in the dash and I drink a lot of coffee.lol So the answer was a center console.

    Thanks Len,

    I usually do a paperboard pattern and go right to metal, but in this case I need something more rigid to have the correct fitment between the floor and the bottom of the dash. So I done two patterns. The first was paperboard, then hardboard (because its rigid), then I went to metal. Those patterns were only the sides. I did not make a pattern for the middle section at all.

    For those that do this as a hobby and don't have a paint booth. If you are interested here is a video of my makeshift paint booth setup after I painted bed.
