Don't like the outdated dash, decided to go the route of Convette and create my own.

Started with the center console:

Going to do aluminum for the face parts, couldn't figure out how I was going to do aluminum for the sides for cheap enough

Also not the best metal worker and can't weld aluminum :(

Mocked up my gauge cluster for the center console. At only 8 inches wide it's going to be tight but they fit

Looks like it will be very nice when finished.  Carpet would hide the wood base leaving the aluminum exposed.  Nice

I wish I could make them consistently! I am totally new to this, so it's really just messing up a lot before getting something that looks good

Lots of trial and error and learning on my part throughout this project

Going to pad the wood and cover it in some kind of material, not sure what yet.

Going to vinyl wrap the aluminum in carbon fiber, I'm afraid leaving the aluminum exposed will show too many faults in my bends and scratches

Another idea you might consider is getting the aluminum done in hydrographics...interior parts look awesome when done, and it stands up a lot better than vinyl...speaking from experience lol.  And the clearcoat is very forgiving to any surface faults.

A friend of mine does it.  Check this link I posted on his behalf...the second video shows how it's done.  I'm sure there's places local to you that do it as well.

That hydrographic stuff looks pretty cool.

Started to bend up sheet aluminum into place. Not very good at it though, will need to figure out a way to fix the larger dents in the metal then cover it with something
