I've always wanted the centerconsole in the scion to meet up at the front and hug the dash. Now that has become a reality

These pics are of my dash currently its just pieced together not screwed all the way in I've changed my mind quite a bit and just wanted to get some feedback on what you guys liked/disliked about it
I plan on adding a screen at the front but currently its just white vinyl

SO many trips to home depot have been quite annoying :mad:

like it hate it I'd like to hear what you think

KEEP IN MIND if its hanging off its cause its not 100% done just yet

thanks

It's not held together very well.

J/K

It's pretty sweet, you said there will be a screen on the lower panel eventually too? Very nice. One thing, you may want to make the armpad black, that's hard enough to keep clean. Keep updating w/progress.

I had given this some thought as well. I was thinking more of using fiberglass to be able to get a smoother shape. Keep up the good work.

Not too shabby!

Just a trick I learned, try some contact cement to hold the edges tight, and carefully heat up the vinyl with a hair dryer to get a nice tight stretch, the cement will hold it there permanently, just try to get it right the first attempt, contact cement is not forgiving, it never lets go once it makes contact, but it makes one heck of a permanent bond! your on the right track, .....I gotta agree, I need those cup holders as well! Good luck!
