    I think I remember a trick where you use coarse sandpaper and press it into Bondo or whatever molding material you're using while it's still soft to replicate the texture... :scratch:

    I was gonna ask how the texture came out. That sounds like an idea worth trying dark writer, maybe ill try it on a piece of plastic and see how it comes out compared to the console. It may be easier to put a LIGHT coat of putty over all the console parts and sand it down real smooth, then paint them all the color you need.

    Ryan,
    Man that rocks, really did a good job. I would be interested in what you would charge for one the same color. I even have a extra console that I could sent you, let me know.

    :nice:I was wondering the same thing, seem a couple guys always know better, then, like his first vert, as you see the work, they seem to disappear! I'll tell ya, both times I went into a showroom to buy a new 5.0, had this been an option, it would've been in both those cars. Great idea. Beautiful work. I'd like to see how it holds up under summertime temps, but, just, wow:nice:. Next, an infomercial- its not a console, its a Ryansole! For only 3 easy payments of $39.95! No more mess, no fuss, no muss! Has this ever happened to you(large Mountain Dew drops on hot chick in GT legs, she jumps as though electrocuted)? Your 5.0 can be as user friendly as your kitchen table! And it cleans up with just soap and water(aforementioned hot chick uses Brawny on cupholder Ryansole, big smile:D)!

    I think slightly lower in the back and you will like the stance a little better. Might help with clearing driveways out front too?
