sorry for the poor picture guys, just figuring out the uploading in here.
here is where I started.
I started off with the basic "skeleton" then wrapped it with fleece from walmart to get the shape, coated it with fiberglass resin. While it was still wet I also laid on chop mat to help keep it from pulling and warping. after that has dried added several more coats of chop mat to make it thicker to keep it from flexing from the JL 12W7 ;-) once that is dried lots of body working with dynaglass and rage gold. once smoothed out a couple coats of slicksand sprayed on to give it the final layer before either paint of vinyl wrap

on the gauges I got the idea from someone in here to use 2" pvc pipe and couplers for the rings. I used the pvc glue to glue the to each other. as you can see I had to cut out the 2 vent, turn the vertical and mold them back in with abs pieces in the openings. I disassembled the 10" screen and took the bezel and glued it onto the dash, then wrapped it with the same fleece and went from there

This is the guts of the xbox 360 that I had to take apart to put the dvd drive in the console. I had to order extension cables off of e-bay for the drive. I also had to disassemble the power switch to mold it into the new radio bezel. the electronics had to be modified. ( You Tube is your friend for this)
The next few is where I had to pull the dash out to dye it charcoal to match the vinyl that I got to match the seats. and a before picture of the sound deadening and then with the hushmat
