Sorry Kev, no picks, but I have an overhead in my truck. I started with cardboard to make a template. Then used 1/2 in plywood as a flat plane to work from. I made a front piece from cardboard and then plywood from that template. Cut the nesc. holes for stereo and other items and covered with carpet left from interior work. The only drwback I have, is when it gets real hot here in SC, that area keeps the heat and tapes play like they are on ludes!
I have seen other shots in mags on full length consoles and they follow my... I followed thier idea when I made mine. Duct tape and cardboard are almost free, so have a nut before you commit to final.
Oh yea, I too use lights, clocks, compass, etc out of junk yard cars for detail. So far it's the best use for an import!
