The glove box is great, unless you keep your stereo in it, the wire rack thingies are great, but having had one, you do find that stuff slides out of the gaps and the drinks holder just isn't big enough..
And I just don't have a 3D printer or a Laser Cutter or anything high tech. I have my imagination and a Bandsaw.
Step 1: DRAWINGS:
Drinks, phone, sunglasses, show tickets, change, chewing gum, sweets, bits and bobs.
The storage box is the picture on the left, the other one is an idea to fit in the ashtray compartment.
Step 2: CARD TEMPLATE:
To get the arch for the front, I use a piece of tinfoil (aluminium foil) and press this around the cable tunnel of my beetle and then transfer this to the card.
Step 3: TRANSFER TO WOOD:
The exterior plywood was scrap which came from a boat building yard nearby. They use it to build the interiors of barges and this was all the off cuts ready to go on the fire.
I then place the card templates on my wood and fitting them all in the best way as not to waste wood, I draw around them all.
Step 4: BANDSAW TIME:
When all pieces are cut, I sand the edges getting rid of any splinters and then using wood glue and panel pins I put all the pieces together.
Then just varnish it for a nice finish.
Step 5: DREMEL:
Step 6: AND THAT'S IT:
A nice VW Logo is carved out of the lid which covers two smaller compartments which you can use for cash, keys etc..
The 2 large drink holder compartments will keep your drinks steadily and safe, measuring 3.5 dia each. Can fit all size cans and they don't spill or go anywhere.
Step 7: MAIN FEATURES:
Hand cut and sanded smooth, tough satin varnish applied
Fits onto your VW Beetle center tunnel, no screwing/glueing
x2 smaller compartments for coins, fuses, keys etc..
One larger compartment for sunglasses, mobile phone etc.
One internal, upright compartment for tickets, etc..
x2 side upright compartments for tickets etc..
an upright compartment on back for tickets, brouchers etc..
Main compartments have non-slip matting in.
Step 8: TADAAAAA:
A very useful storage box for your VW Beetle without using any special equipment.
Thanks for looking
