Armrest Storage Mod

I hated how my armrest couldn't actually be used to store anything, due to the useless phone cradle. So I decided to hack it up and this is how it turned out.

For those not brave enough to cut things, there's an OE version without the snap-in adapter available, too.

Nope. Have one in my car. It is a factory accessory, part of the "apps" package.

Looks great! I store a small notepad and pen in there at the moment. Wish you showed how to remove the armrest.

i want to do this, once you remove the phone cable, does it affect the fibre optic look in anyway?

Hm. Need to decide whether to delete the arm rest or do this now. I like it. Congrats due to the OP, be it a few years late or not.

Ok but it's not pretty. Lol. I cut off the back part not realizing I needed it. I see there is a couple things i can do to fix it. But it's in the center console and I'm not real worried about it until I finish a few larger projects
