So, lately I've been plugging my phone in to listen to pandora in the car, but that means the phone is just sitting on the passenger seat (since I routed the USB connection through the center console a while back). I don't like "loose-ends" and a phone without a home certainly feels like one to me...

Enter the engineer who can't leave things alone: an over designed phone holder! lol

Made the plans in CAD, marked on some spare sheetmetal, cut it out and bent into shape:








Once these two pieces are attached (as shown), I will drill the mounting holes on that big bottom flange, and bolt to the seat base for my Recaro. Should be a nice little slot to drop the phone down into.











Oh, and I finished installing the Oil cooler/lines/sandwich plate


And this gets covered up by the panels under the bumper... I'm not leaving that exposed. haha

Late reply, but the side grills come out to access those pins. Been a bit since I pulled the bumper, but I recall all 3 grill pieces basically just pop out of you pull after removing the top pop pins. Maybe mine are messed up though, since some assflap cracked the center one by backing their penile extension into it.

Good to see it coming along though.

Yeah, the only problem is the plastic tabs behind the three pieces (not the top ones) are more likely to break than pop out at this age (ask me how I know ) But I can see your point of them being "deisgned" to be removable like that. oh well :shrug: I like my solution better

TBH it'd probably be much cheaper to have a local guy build one for you, but Im flattered you like mine so much
