pmod posted a topic in Silvia Technical ArticlesThis is possibly one of the stranger DIYs you could do, but it has potential. In NSW (Australia), there is a brand of breath mints called 'Eclipse', which come in a metal case. I assume these are sold elsewhere in the country, and perhaps other countries too. The case comes in silver, cobalt blue, dark blue and green. It just so happens that the case is a similar size to the often unused switch hole in the S15 center console. With a little modification, it can be snugly inserted into the existing hole in the console. Painted the same colour as the console trim, I'm sure it wouldn't look much out of place. My console came from an ADM 200sx. Difficulty = 1 Where 10 is rebuilding an engine, and 0 is picking your nose. Time Required = 15 minutes Take your time, as you won't get a second-shot to correct mistakes. If painting and following the optional steps, it will take a little longer. Tools Required A small file and/or a razor knife. I only had a pocket knife at hand, which shows just how basic this mod is. Take care not to cut your hand if applying force with a knife. Usage The obvious use for the case is to store breath mints. Alternatives include: Coins, fuses, candy, sultanas Drill some small holes in the top and hold air freshener material Remove the lid and hold cigarettes, tissues, receipts, etc If you had a really long straw, you could rig up a hands-free cocaine snorting system (drugs are bad mmkay) Process Step 1. Remove the alignment tab with a knife or file. Step 2. File the front and rear edges of the hole until they're almost gone. The sides facing the doors need not be touched. Test-fit the box as you work, to ensure a snug fit. Step 3. Test fit the mint box and insert it as far as needed. If you take your time, you can make it a loose or rock-solid fit. Optional Step 4: If you desire a loose fit for ease of removal, then file the hole a little larger and mark the carpet below with a pen. Remove the center console. Glue some velcro (wire-loop side only) to the under side of a small block of wood, then position it on the carpet where marked. Glue some foam rubber in place to adjust the height of the bump-stop to suit, and to make some walls to hold the case in place. If I choose to do this, I'll add some pics.
