Custom rear center console/sub box

So ive been working on this for a while now but decided to make a thread with progres pics etc
this sits between the front center jumseat and the rear bench and has cupholders for the rear, the way its designed you can still flip up the front conole/seatback but you will lose the center rear seat for passengers but works good for small dogs, baby seat etc, and when i need all 6 seats its easily removable
its got a 12" subwoofer within the box downfiring so it spreads the sound through out the cab and isnt visible from the outside, with a ported enclosure

i started out with a lot of measurments and some MDF to get the basic design and shape then rounded off the corners and framed up the cup holder prtion using 3" ABS pipe and small MDF pieces for support for the fiberglass

once all the fiberglass is done i will use some body filler and smooth it all out and paint match it to the outside and posibly get some matching tan leather for the top

anyways heres the pics for now im going to try to finish up today

How are you planning to finish it? Paint? Upholstery? Carpet? Also any pic of it in the vehicle?

I'm going to paint it to match the exterior. I'll put up pics of it in the truck once it's done.
I got it pretty much smoothed out yesterday a bit more to do and primer today

heres an update, ive been really busy lately so havent been able to get it done as soon as id like but the body filler and primer is all done, i used up the last little bit of black metalic paint i had so i need to pick up some more before i can finish up but heres what its lookin like now, these are the first coat of primer so it still looks a little rough. i wanted to put little LEDs in the cup holders for a little extra look but decided that would be too much work for what its worth

Thanks Dave. It sounds better than it looks. I had it in the truck for about a month when it was just the MDF sub box. I'll try to get a sound clip but it's tought with my phone. And my other Camera doesn't have good sound quality.

It's got plenty of bass for the truck though. Shakes all the mirrors and rattles the doors and roof. But it's not annoying where you can hear it outside. Especially over the truck running
