Default What do you think?

I built a custom center console> I kept it simple and practical but it kinda sucks at the same time.

Then i spray painted my dash.





I'll take better pics of it tomorrow. I just got the camera late in the day so...

Maybe build a cupholder into it? Or mount some switches for new things. Does the lid open towards you? I'd have it open the other way.

I thought about having it open the other way but the radio gets in the way. I could build a cupholder in there. But Peter told me it'* square while everything is so curvy. I have to agree with him on this. any idea how to make it look better?
