Made center console

Well Yesterday (friday) I went off the deep end after all the crap going on with life . So I started therapy again (modding the Ranger ) I started with new seat covers , Then after about 6 differant JY I decided It would be easyer and cheaper to make my own center console to house Radio , CB , and swithces + all my other crap . It turned out pretty well I had 3 major problems but I "improvised , adapted , and overcame them" so Im happy . Its late and I cant find my camera so pics will be up soon .
Sorry for the long post
-Nick
