  • Relocating 12V socket & a money tray

    Something that becomes annoying is leads running all over the dash, of late I've had the GPS power lead and phone charger hanging around the cabin.
    I have wondered for a while what that cover on the top of the dash is for. Turns out its a fake speaker cover.
    Being one of those people who does things because they can, I thought I might try and neaten all the area a bit.
    Relocating the power socket
    Maybe the power socket could be moved under this cover. After a bit of trouble to get the cover off without damage. (Mitsubishi in their wisdom seem to think this cover needs better attachment than the dash itself!) I find a nice spot for some power sockets.
    I mounted a 3 sockets- Cigarette lighter style and a double USB on a piece of plastic. With a little cutting I was able to get it all to fit in very nicely.
    There is a small rectangular screw cover just forward of the speaker cover and this popped out really easily, so it was modified so the cables for GPS power and reverse camera came out here.
    I threaded the USB cable for the phone back down the dash and it comes out under the CB radio, where I keep the phone. (this mod is on another thread)
    Money tray:
    No longer needing the original power socket I removed it, and modified the original socket cover to take a tray for my spare coins- which usually occupied the cup holders. Using a piece of 65mm water main and some plastic sheet made up a half pipe money tray. Screwing it to the original socket cover proved suprisingly simple as the cover popped off the hinge, allowing 3 screws to be inserted and then covered again.
    Anyway, I'm pleased with the result, it’s really tidied up the dash area.

        Do you not have the Rockford surround system? I thought that centre speaker was for it ...

            Ah okay. Wasn't sure what MM had done with the specs.

              That's a nice mod. It is kind of ironic that you're re-commissioning the ash tray, but it makes sense; I'd have no where for my change if it weren't for the ash try in the NP.
