Looking for information from the "peanut gallery". Im in the process of rebuilding a 74 valco.

My intended use is shallow water, and I want a walk thru windsheild package, but so far have not seen any cosole designs that turned me on..

Couple questions

Has anyone built one either wood or metal, and what changes would they make to the console now that it has been in use for a while.

Console height?
Windsheild height and angle? > I'm 6'3"

Im attempting to keep weight low, and if possible cost low...(I know its relative)

I want to design/build for functionality/durability, making it pretty is low on the list of priorities..

If anyone has some pics or design hints it would be appreciated..

Second aluminum fabricators in the interior if you know of a good one, please post it as well
