Okay, yes I have read over other posts, and I've gotten quite a bit of information out of them, but I was hoping to be able to get more project specific details/help if I run into any issues..
Now onto the project, the vehicle is a 02 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS. I plan to fiberglass my center console and build in a switch panel as well as having LED/neon lights that are recessed and cant quite tell that they are there and possibly something I will outline below if anyone knows how to do it.. I also have future plans on fiberglassing my dash and moving my climate control panel up and moving my stereo down and putting it in at an angle to be more functionable/readable.
Now the part that confuses me is how I will create it. I don't want to use the current center console as the mold because well I don't like it. And thats the reason why I am doing this completely custom and from scratch. How would I do the actual fiberglassing/molding/everything?
Also does anyone know how to create this kind of look? I'd love to be able to know how to create this sort of look, not too sure where I'd use it yet, but just generally knowing how would help me out quite a bit.

Could you replicate that using tint? wrapping tint over the parts your making?

What exactly are you trying to do again?
Are you trying fabricate the flush mounted lighting? The easiest way I'd see, is using a CNC Router.. by yourself, from scratch, will be much more labor intensive... Couple of different ways to do it though.
Biggest thing though is, how much detail are you looking to produce or what kinda design?
Look twice, think thrice, 1 splice/ 1 slice!
This is a phrase i came up with and something i will now live by.

Sorry, you can NOT post a reply.
