After I built a console for my personal muscle car I have had numerous positive comments and interest from other car enthusiasts for me to build one for their car.
I try to keep them rather simple and tasteful without a lot of over the top customizing so they are geared more towards stock and semi modified vehicles.
I make a cardboard mock up for each vehicle or make it using the mock up you make yourself.
Then I transfer the patterns to 1/2" furniture grade, sand able plywood, cut them out, glue and screw them together, and farm it out to my upholstery guy down the street.
The end results are killer and the possibilities are endless.
It takes me sometimes 35 hours labor to make one from scratch and I can't charge by the hour but by the result just to keep the price reasonable.
Most customs consoles sell for over a thousand bucks but I can do it for roughly half of that.
I have shipped a couple of them out of state to different enthusiast forum members where they were not sure of shifter placement and such due to not knowing exactly where they were going to mount their cheetah shifter, window switches, cup holders, vents, pockets, lights, etc.....so in these situations it is better for me to ship it assembled with hinged console attached and not upholstered.
In this instance I also ship them assembled with screws and no glue that way the top plate near the shifter can be taken off easily, holes cut after fitment then glued by owner and assemble easily by putting the screws back in.
Here is the write up that sparked my first two out of state customers.
