3/8/10Ok picked up my cover last night and did the install. I will not post pictures unless someone needs some because they are on the web sight and you will have yours soon.
The install was very simple I expected to have some type of screws to secure the cover but was provided velcro for that. People who purchased the locking version may have a means of securing the cover other than velcro you will just have to wait and see.
I decided against the locking version because if they broke into the car they will break into the cover. In my eyes it just keeps honest people honest and the people I hang with are very honest.
That being said my first thoughts after setting in place other than this cover is cool was noticing the lip all around the inside and what a perfect opportunity to have a tray sitting on it creating a false bottom to store more valuable items for those who are concerned, this would give you a tray to store the little things and a larger box underneath for larger items. I will Contact Dick and see if they could create this accessory to their console cover and hope it would be worth their time and effort.
I think just a little tray that would sit on the inside lip would be great. If I get the chance maybe I could stop by your shop this week and discuss my needs3/8/10
Thanks for your comments, FJ. We could provide an inner plate that would act as a removable floor. As we form the Cover, the inner section contains
a floor that is cut out. One forum member in the past requested his Cover with the floor intact- he wanted to mount his CB radio on the floor. Never heard any further how the project came out. I have considered making a drop-in "vault" that would bolt through the bottom of the console well and fasten to the frame of the car. The vault would fit inside a non-locking Panamint cover. Probably use 1/8" thick stainless steel with a recessed removable top that also had a recessed lock - very similar to a floor safe. I'm not sure how much of a market exists for the "vault" approach. Like you say, maybe you don't want someone trying to pry out the vault and messing up the rest of the car. Any comments?
