Go for it, custom consoles are always sweet. The only cost is what you put into it, the wood, cost of fiberglass things like that

Oh I thought you were gonna try this yourself.

Going somewhere is gonna run up the cost a lot, labor will kill ya at a shop.

Not sure where though, are there any custom audio shops around?

I don't think I could make one, well I could prolly get one together, but it won't look great. I bet someone here could build something, but you'll just have to wait and see.

Getting a basic drawing of what you want is a good place to start

hey guys go to fiberglassforum.com or check out the tech pages on therangerstation.com under interior there is a guy who did one for his ranger. Its pretty easy to do but Ill warn you to not put a sub in it. I built one for a buddys 98 gmc half ton and it sonded like s*** but yeah just go to wally world and get some resin/cloth and build a mold out of foam and try it. totally cooler if you can say you made it yourself

Don't use the Bondo brand - resin / fiberglass it is terrible to work with and don't know of too many people that are happy with the outcome.... Find a local boat / marine / rv store or maintenance place, most of the time you can get better quality fiberglass resin from there... Maybe run into someone interested in doing the work too...

i agree. find some other brand because when we used the bondo stuff it was pretty terrible to work with. check out some of the products the pros on fiberglass forums use.
