Center Console

Has anyone tried to make a console out of metal tubing and sheet metal. I am finished with the painting of my coupe and now I am going to tackle the inside. ..........Glenn

Metal tubing and sheet metal is a hard way of doing it IMO. It is much easier to use MDF or thin plywood and fiberglass it. There is quite a good discussion on this method in this forum.

How about maybe using 1/2" box tubing for the frame and cover it with MDF or plywood GK

Check out my journal where I have used this method. The fibreglass method however will allow creating complex curves very easily in comparison.
