    Has anyone made a Custom Center Console for their 1st get taco's?? I am thinking about making me one to sit in between the shift knob and the seat! Maybe one with a pen and pencil holder, Ipod holder, and a drink holder! If you have made one please add pics!

    P.S Yes I know I spelled Console wrong in the headline...it was a typo and to late to fix it!

    Are you thinking of something like this? Mine is an ipod dock with an open back for small storage.

    What i would try is build an ipod dock to your preferences then screw on a small metal tub( pen sized) on the back corner, then find another piece of metal tubing to screw on to the side that could hold a cup. it would take up all space and accomodate a pen/pencil and an extra drink:D Thats just my idea.

    Yea that is a good idea! But my grandpa is really good at making wood stuff. So i think he is going to make me something and then I am going to add some type of fabric or material to it to make it blend!
