Center Console Mods

So I went ahead and finally decided to do some work that I'd wanted to do for a long time. I did this because I just got my dark slate center console, but funny enough I discovered a dark slate console in my parts pile in the basement.

Anyways, here we go. I did all of this with parts that I had on hand. There is a mirror backed acrylic strip that I glued flush into the console wall and drilled out the mirror backing only in the spots the LEDs are present. They are wired to a switch so they turn on automatically when the lid opens. The red button is my hard wired computer power button for doing manual start ups and shut downs. I also converted the cigarette lighter plug into a USB outlet. The only other modifications I would expect would be to bury other switches in here that I want tucked away in the future.







Now a video of the lid in action.



My car won't ever be done because I'm insane. That is all.

I like it, a lot. It looks like a factory installed piece. Great job per usual Dan!

Nicely done, Dan. How many LEDS are in there, cause that looks super bright. I like the USB port also. I'll probably do this mod soon.

There are 12 leds. I used a strip of extra bright leds left over from a lighting project for my bathroom renovation.

Yes they do.

The ones I used are the high powered LEDs since I was originally lighting a room, so this would be the RGB equivalent. If you don't need the really high brightness there are some much cheaper options.

Pretty sure that was an 02+ mod.

As it turns out I have an extra Dark Slate center console sitting around. The only thing wrong with it is that it's missing the lid to the outlet, which would be pretty easy to grab from a yard.
