I was thinking to construct a new cockpit, while waiting for GT5 (I know I have plenty of time!), upgrading to a new one that will support a shifter too. That means also an upgrade from the DFGT to a wheel with an H pattern shifter.
So, having in mind the G27 I used the Google SketchUp to design the new cockpit.
Description / Characteristics: the minimum possible dimensions (to fit everywhere), sturdy and solid structure, practicality, the lowest possible cost while keeping the aesthetic pleasure - high. I also added the possibility to use the G27 pedals inverted.
The material I chose can be found at DIYs stores, for the frame I used 4.5 x 7.5 wood beams and the rest is 18mm MDF
There is a shelf to hold a PS3 and enough room (behind the wheel) to place an LCD tv. An (multi-) power point can be fited under the shelf.

Good luck, if you try to construct it. #cockpit #G25 #G27 #inverted_pedals #shifter #Wheel
