Nipped up to the shed and grabbed this:



What to do with it? Hmm..... an idea!



ooh I have a dremmel-like thingymebob:



Bzzzzzzz.......



More Bzzzz:



Ooh, looks what it's like behind the air bag blank!



Best to pop those nuts off.. ooh it's on the bench!



Let's bend it a bit:



Hmmm.. that almost fits it:



Not bad...



Let's mark round my spare blank for the fun of it!



Oh no the dremmel thingymebob got at it!!



Better smooth it then spray the inside black (dunno why just better!):



I'll file those pesky side bits off too I think:



Ooh I know - let me control the dremmel thingymebob for a mo:



Ah the satin black is dry at last!



Let's pop some carpet (left over from rear bulkhead when I changed carpet to cream!) on that annoying cross member:



Mmm that's better:



It fits! Woohoo:



Dont like that plastic - better cover it with some more of that carpet:



It certainly looks better than plastic!



Voila! Finished at last!



It would be better without the huge lump in the middle but there's still a decent bit of space for sunnies, phone etc in there!
