It's not a full console, but I made a shorter one for my sedan, also of fiberglass. I shaped pink builder's foam to the shape I wanted, covered it with aluminum foil, then laid fiberglass matt/resin over it. I smoothed it up with some body filler, primed and painted it. Pretty easy. I also made a dash extension to hold my A/C vents.
