    Only pulling your leg, even though it might not be to everyone's liking, it's your attemp at a simple solution for which you have a need.Maybe just finish it off ?

    I think he thought it was finished when he posted the pic.

    How are you securing the box in place? In a roll over a loose box like that can take off your head.

    To round it off a bit better use foam as suggested and pleather or my favourite sound carpet. Sound carpet is super easy to work with as it stretches very easily and you just glue it in place.

    Also I would cut a piece of wood to the shape of the console to fill the gap by the handbrake, I.e two "legs" for the front.

    For v2 remove the existing lid and just build a extension to go onto the existing hole and then mount the existing lid on the top.

    Thank you.
    Exactly my thoughts as I am reading through this thread. Some of the people commenting here are just too quick to criticize others. If you have the need to criticize, then give constructive criticism, as some did.

    Are you suggesting that there is more than one offensive box in this thread?

    Default Version 2

    Well so far I have been able to remove the two part sidewalls and make it two solid sidewalls. I have sanded the whole thing down removing any rough edges. I have taken off the lid of the centre console and will attach the hinge of that lid to a seperate piece of wood that I will attach to the main container. I have yet to cover it in any material but that too will come. I will be doing the test fitting this evening. Wont be attaching it yet as she is going in for a service tomorrow and I wouldnt want the mechanics laughing at my lack of woodwork skill

    We need pics! It surely will lighten up our sunday afternoon blues. Those cork sheets will also make a nice cover for the box.

    Default Version 2 pics

    RIGHT, upon this grey, wet winters evening, my armrest has been fitted. Find pics below. I will not attempt to cover it myself and will rather have someone who does upholstery take a look. But all in all im mighty chuffed. and Ill tell you. It makes a world of difference when you can rest your arm on the other side aswell.

    Looking much better. For upholstery try foam and sound carpet. Dead easy to work with. Just paint on some contact adhesive with a brush and glue the foam in place. Trim with a sharp knive. Same process with the sound carpet. Just make sure to get glue nicely on all the edges, just not too much as it then goes through the carpet.
