Center Console
I would like to build a custom center console for my car. A place to store stuff out of site and somewhere to mount switches for my electric windows, door locks and seats, as well as a couple of USP ports. Here are some ideas. These are custom made for a classic Mustang but the concept will work for our cars. If you have any suggestion please chime in.

You are going to have too make it very thin to fit a beetle.
I decided to extend the ashtray part of the dash to fit vents and switches.

I really like both examples but they are too wide.
One thing I am considering is Lincoln style window switches
hidden out of site under the arm rest. They mounted within easy finger tip access. You can't drink in my car so you don't need cup holders. Just me. Recently I found a pic of an off road aluminum center gauge console cut down finished, and hung on the ceiling. It looked good.
What seats are you gonna run? Pics?

They are black leather seats out of a Mazda 6, heated with electric tilt/trim. I need to get them out of storage and mock everything up to see how much space I have. If I remember correctly they are close in size to the stock seats.

You might want to take a look here. A lot to choose from.

Thanks for the link. The PVC foam board should be very lite.
