New custom center console....special thanks to _Diesel_
just wanted to throw out a special thanks to _diesel_ i liked the look of your custom console so i finally started working on mine and its coming alot great.
I used an old desk top that i had laying around that had a nice little wood grain paint already on it. I was going to try to get the painted match to the seats like _diesel_ did but I ended up having some stain laying around in my shop and tried it on a scrap piece and it ended up matching the wood grain of the interior accents pretty good so i used that instead.
I liked how _diesel_ had his tablet mounted to the console so i stole another of his genius ideas and mounted my CTS programmer there. I'm also going to run my media cords for my phone and ipod out through the console somehow.
As far as cupholders and 12v plugs ins i havent really figured that part out as of yet but im working on that. It has come along very good and I am really liking it so far. Hopefully this afternoon i will have it completely mounted and in the truck.
Again, I want to thank _diesel_ for his very in depth post on how he built his console. I have been wanting one since i sold my 04 f-150 but couldnt figure out how to even start.
I will post pics tonight hopefully
