Completely new to me and never heard of them before... but it looks like they are doing a set for the MGF MkII/MGTF console as well. The set contains 8 pieces and many options are available. Even carbon is an option, but that's for another page ;o)
    
Allthough their website doesn't show a picture of the F/TF console, they show a kind of sample of the available types of finish.

We won't be talking about Mike Satur, if Mike wasn't doing a wooden dashboard kit. I can not find a signle dashboard item that could not get covered by a veneer. Of course, a set of such items will add the ultimate luxerious look to your convertible. A lot of options are available: start choosing between burr walnut and burr elm. Continue with choosing all the parts you want to transform: instrument cowl, console, airbag blank, air vents, heater and switch panel, trinket tray lid, gear knob and handbrake lever.

1) As a proof that alloy and wood will really fit nicely in the same interior, a small picture of Scarlet's interior. IMHO wood will make the F's interior very classy and the touch of alloy will double the effect.

    

    

2) Have a look at 'ebay', as there are probably several auctions for a new console on going. Have a search for "MGF Console".
