It might have been down as I see that no new folks can register - possibly hit with a virus which needs a clean up
Looks like a wealth of info there for those who don't mind getting their fingers sticky.
As far as consoles, I fabbed one together for my '31 from 3/8" tubing, put a sheet metal cover, then upholstered it with a premium vinyl. Looks great - except once I got the car done, I found that I had no room for my right knee(I'm 6'4" tall) so am storing it for the "next build"
This was set up for a stereo and a/c controls, as well as the Lokar shifter tho all of the holes hadn't been opened in the fabric in the photo.
