Center Console gear plate

Post by blank77 » Mon Oct 07, 2019 3:48 pm

I put in the center console and replaced the radio with the giant screened all in one. It was nice because I don't need to worry about the plate below the A/C controls, but I do have a hole where the shifter is - Anyone have an idea on this? I have made my own foam cover temporarily but would like to do something functional with the hole. Thoughts?

I had Columbus Car Audio here in Columbus, OH fabricate me something to plug the hole. Right now it is just blank. In the future, I might add some accessories that have external buttons or switches, like aftermarket seat warmers or a radar detector, but right now I'm just leaving it blank. You could also put a wireless charger there and charge your phone.

I took a piece of hard plastic and cut it to fit under the trim. Painted all of it black. looks good for temp.
Right now im working on making a wireless sticky charging pad for my phone. Trying to make it look stock so i can just lay my phone there and it charge and it wont slide when i bend them curves.
Ill post when finished.
