Has anyone tried the TRAP radio bezel with the stock console? This is the closest Ive found so far. I have the IL console with the cup holders on the side and I like it alot.

I assume its a TRAP. I doesnt look quite TRAP. I would like to create the same look but with a stock type console. Is there anyway that a stock bezel can be wrapped to create the lip around it to give it the TRAP look. You interior guys are great at this stuff.

I would like to put a wood insert into the sunken part similar to the picture below. I look forward to hearing from some of you creative guys.

Step 1: Acquire bondo
Step 2 - 99: Go crazy
Step 100: done!

Sorry, but that's an honest answer. If you wanna build something unique and crazy, you have to be the one to do the work. The internet can't do it for you.

I appreciate the confidence you have in me. I am no stranger to bondo. The statement that the internet wont build it for me is not exactly true.
The Adore/Grinder NA/NC nose was developed partially due to the thread I started about wanting a new nose for the NA.

The picture below is an example somebody can do what Im looking for. I just would like a little idea how it was done.

I have lots of confidence in you. Hence my statement about the bondo. I think you'll be able to build it pretty easy. However, I think your time might be better spent at your workbench rather than posting.

You know what you want. You have a photo of what you want. That's the two key ingredients.

I am no stranger to bondo.
Then it should be obvious how to use it. Take a console, somehow attach a frame around it, and round the corners of that frame with some bondo. Perhaps lay some vinyl or leather on top for an OEM texture. Then post pix on your favorite forum.

True. I assume Trap sells something like this. Then you'd not have to build it.

Its amazing just how easy making most things like this turn out to be... the hardest bit is tearing yourself away from the computer and getting started! When I started making my spoiler I spent ages on the computer and looking at other spoilers etc... once I started, it was the shape of the car that dictated what I made and all the "research" was pretty much a waste of time. In the end, I made my first basic shape in about 2 hours!!
