Custom Carbon Fiber Console

I got the shifter plate in and preped to make the tooling mold. I got the "modifications" laid out with the clay...just waiting on the console base. I'll get some pictures up when I get a chance to get on the computer and not my iPhone. It's looking pretty good so far though. Still haven't decided if I want to make a gauge cluster on the console or get a dash pad like Eric Animal.

i should have made a master mold when i did my dash pad, made it to fit over the whole right side and blended it with seam filler at the eyebrow. if you have a vacuum table would be a snap to stretch the vinyl, i did mine by hand and it came out nice. Eric supplied the inspiration and the extra dash panel for me to play with.

Haha...if funny you said that Eric...there is a very specific reason I am redoing my Goat...the elements are 1) My GTO 2) a 70 year old woman in her Kia 3) a clearly and properly displayed red light she felt wasn't meant for her 4) a unusually high temperature gauge mounted where the 8-track use to mount I was peaking down at...probably right Eric...don't want that to happen again

Got the shifter plate all "clayed" in and covered with the PVA. Going to be laying the glass for the rough mold probably tomorrow morning (its a little cold today for it). After I get the rough mold pulled I will smooth everything out with body filler and sand everything smooth to make the finish mold (don't want to put body filler on original parts.) Got the console done too, I/'' put the pics up when i get them off my phone.
