Well, I’ve finished the second phase of building a console for my Mini Cooper. I’ve used some cheap wood from B&Q for this version. I did find enough room for two, count em two, cup holders. I’ve also added a pair of illuminated power plugs that I found at Halfords. 7.99 a pop. Ouch, but I wanted power.

Here is what this version looks like. I’ll probably run with this one for a month or so before doing the next step. I’ve already figured I want to extend the lower portion to cover and surround the gear shifter. I think that would look better.

I have left enough room in the middle below the heater controls to add an ipod dock.


And yes, I know, Paint the INSIDE also next time. (-:
