Default gu roof console

gday, this is the roof console ive been building for the gu.

using 11mm ply for the sides and 7mm for the bottom and angles.

its almost complete now, fibreglassed last night and sanded back today.

faceplate made to house dual battery monitor, uhf and 4 switches for no apparent reason at the moment. also external uhf speaker, and waiting on interior lights as it can then be professionally trimmed.

enjoy.

Looks good so far, interested to see pics once its trimmed. Just wondering what you've used for mounts and what model GU its going into, DX, ST etc. I'm looking for the best way to mount my console that is way overdue to be built. I have 2010 GU VII DX, so don't have the luxury of the sunglass holder and/or map lights that some of the other models have and therefore can be used as a place to mount console.
