    Looking for input from the Forum's Finest,,,

    As some of you may recall, I've been slowly adding personal touches to my '97 Silver Mist Metallic Deville with Dark Montana Blue interior. It was a cherry, 83K Florida car to start with and came with a custom interior (among other things) by a company called Coachwork Limousine Ltd.

    Mods to date include: swapping out all the exterior bulbs with Xenons, adding the "Deville" logo to the central brakelight pod, K&N oil and air filters, Mobil 1 Synthetic fluids, Zebrano wood dash/door kit, wood/leather steering wheel, blue tinted interior lights, chrome centre caps for the rims, Concours black-out grille and all the crest/wreath logos were swapped out for the more current art and science version.

    Anyhoo, I am considering making a centre console for it and was wondering if anyone here has done the something similar. I plan to have the bottom half trimmed out with the same material as the carpet and the top will be done in Cocobolo wood - an almost exact match for the Zebrano. This console will house a spot for CDs, change tray, auxilliary ashtray, kleenex reservoir, whatever. There will be 3 doors or lids that'll open with small struts and close with a magnetic catch.

    Just wondering as I said before, if anyone else has done this and what their design might have looked like. As usual, I will take photos of the finished product, but will need some assistance from you good folks about getting them on this board. I have enough woodworking moxie to ensure the end product doesn't look "bush league". To date, all the mods look like they could have been done by the manufacturer.

    Sorry, I can't help with your question, but i have one for you. I have a 96 Deville (33,000 mi.) and I would love to have a steering wheel that is wood. Where is yours from and what does it look like ?

    Michael, the steering wheel came from a wrecked 2002 Eldorado - I had to re-dye the leather from dove grey to Dark Montana blue so it would match my interior. Not a large deal, the kit to re-dye came from Leather magic and cost around 40 bucks. The steering wheel set me back $375 and I got it through CardioDoc.

    Do you have any pictures of your interior and exterior? I'd like to try some mods on my car that don't take away from the car still looking like a cadillac. I just put some hid's on but would like to upgrade my turn lights to hid's or something brighter. It's really hard to upgrade the interior also.
