00, try termpro.com. Audio forum, fabrication, topic is fiberglass anyone. There is a TON of info on fiberglassing. The thread starts on how to do a center console. Think youll like it.

I have a 98 dakota single cab. I just made me a custom center console/subbox for my 10" type r. I made it all out of mdf, and I am in the process of doing some fiberglass work to french in some drink holders and give it some curves. I will post pictures when I finish. (hopefully done my wednesday) it looks kinda like this

This is/was my first time to deal with fiberglass, so far I am happy with how it is turning out. I didn't realize how much sanding it is taking me. but here are pictures of what it looks like before I sand it.



The two humps above where the speaker goes are drink holders, that is also the front. Hopefully I can get a coat of paint on it tomorrow, and put it in with my reupholstreyed seats and headliner. I'll put more pictures up when I finish.
