    I've got a 2001 Celica GT, and have been wanting to mod the center console as well. I found a company here in Austin that claims their main installer is Fishman (Fishman, Fishguy?) trained, which is apparently a big deal. Say's he'll do the custom fiberglassing to get the screen where the double-din stock radio is currently for $500 or so. Sounds pretty good to me, but between a wedding and a new house, I need to wait a bit

    NJay, can you buy any of these center consoles built for the LCDs from anybody, or are they all custom jobs? I know that there is/was a 5" screen center console you could get from Japan at one point...

    TayTay,
    the original piccy of my car has the JDM (Japan Domestic Market) Console in it. They are meant to be for the 5.8in widscreen CRT (can you believe it!!!) that is part of the optional SAT/NAV system. It has a little area for a keypad in front of it the screen which I covered with MDF and alcantara.

    Its was part of a group buy here in the UK 18months ago and cost 90 inc. of delivery. The US GB at the same time was selling them for $300 each


    The steering wheel is indeed painted. It belongs to one of the club members. In fact the whole car is now repainted in Peugoet Blue including the FG boot install and interior.

    Cool - Yeah - the JDM console is what I was thinking about. Sounds like a good deal on the group buy!! I like the screen up there (as it affords room for the stock head unit), but the sunglasses case area probably wouldn't be big enough for the 7" screen I'd like to put in... I'm still trying to figure out a way to keep the stock head unit and cover the screen after I put it in. I'd really like everything to look stock ideally...If I can't do that, I'll probably install the screen where the head unit is and then put another head unit up in the sunglasses case as I've seen some folks do (and as one of your pics show NJay).

    And I still would LOVE to have the electronic climate controls!!!

    taytay, $500 is just ridiculous to pay to fiberglass a center console.

    NJay, what was used to paint it? how does it hold up?
    I think it would be a great addition to everything i've done to the interior

    Really? What would you think is reasonable for custom dash work like that?
