12V Console power... how about 110V?

Yea so while I am in the middle of converting the interior, I decided to do a mod I have had in mind for quite awhile. I have had the parts for some time now.

I decided to add two 110V outlets to the rear of the console and a 1500W power inverter to the car. This was first try, got the right side off center a little bit, but it will work for now (at least until I find another Light Taupe console back):

Before:


After:




Did it mainly for my vacuum at shows and laptop charging on trips. What do ya think?

I don't think Id use it for vacuums, but its a great mod. Had one in my trep for the ps3 and it came in handy a lot. Also saves a few bucks on buying car chargers for the phone.

I had wanted to do this for a while, but could never find a socket that would look right. Looks like you found one though!

Looks really good. Some laptop chargers aren't really happy with some inverters though.

Going to require a new fuse setup, nothing major, building a fuse box to stuff behind dash panel with direct link to battery. Big 3 with zero gauge coming soon, should open up some power...
