your center dash piece is it hold nicely without those bottom 2 screws? I was thinking of molding my console into that piece as well. Not too sure if it would be flimsy or not

TCal, absolutely amazing man.  I just cant get over how good that mdf looks. You have an awesome ability man. It feels great too dont it, too see your project coming together like that knowing you built it yourself. Man I love that feeling.

Damn dude,

I replied to your post awhile back and it didn't update.  Without screws the console is secure and fits snug.  I'm planning on using screws next to the glove box, next to the panel under the steering wheel, and along the brackets for the rear part of the console.

Thanks man... yea it's always fufilling to do your own work... I've pretty much built this truck from the ground up... suspension, engine, audio / vid system, paint, etc... all done by me.

I went with the mdf because what I wanted was much simpler to do with mdf as opposed to glass.  I would have had to build a frame for the console that would have looked the same as I got with full mdf.  Not to mention, intigrating the storage compartments in the rear of the console would have been next to impossible to do if the sides were glassed.

You could also make a mold of the factory center console. That 's what I did for mine.  I just finished my last piece yesterday and so glad.  It's been a long 7 months.

I'm using the circular panel that I made that conforms with the curves of the console.  I'm going to wrap it in black tweed or prep it and paint it.  Probably going to be the tweed though.
