You can make one, just some wood and paint. Then if you want to get fancy you can fiberglass it.

This is what I have been thinking about doing to either mount a touch screen in or to relocate my CD player and put the touch screen in the dash.

I measured it out. Too much work, it will look akward, and will be akward to use.

Looks like my touch screen (if my carputer ever comes through) will be going on the tranny hump behind the shifter.
