I’ve done a cardboard mock up of a center console for my classic mini, Mr. Ed. As anyone who owns a classic mini knows. The interior lighting sucks, no console, no cup holders, no auxillary power. So I plan on fixing that. I’m going to build a center console with 2 illuminated power plugs, a cup holder, a change holder, a hanger for my ipod, and whatever else I can stuff in it.

Here’s the first mock up I’ve done.

As you can see, some different splices of cardboard with the all important duct tape holding it together.

Here it is from the passenger side. It looks rough, but it’s a mock up what can you expect?

And finally and MOST importantly. The coffee cup test.
