in my honest opinion when you have a day like this i keep the sledge hammer well hidden, you on the other hand have it cocked and ready

foil lining looks good, keep at it it will work out,

Oh I dont know,,Looks pretty good to me.
I was building something similier for my HX but will cover it with heat stretched vinyl so as not to show my lack of wood working skill.

When a roof console gets built in a Holden, SHOULD they get attached at the suniser and rear vision mirror mounts, or is there somewhere better?

Don't laugh, i've seen it done.
It was a phone in-car kit and the control unit was screwed to the firewall on a suzuki carry van.
The screws stuck out 1/2" through the firewall. (silver screws on a dark blue van AND they stood out).

I know how much of a pain roof consules are, I've lost count of the number I have built, trashed, tried again......

Had the current Van for 5 years and this is consule number 7. Yep! Still not happy and it's coming down again.



Got a few new idea's now, like always, 99% complete, 100% better idea.

I'll get mine done right first (and make all the boo boo's on it!).

Think Muz wants one.......

Then I'll give it a hit, I will be better experienced to attempt a Monster consule thats would be required for yours!
