NOTE - The following mod was originally submitted to the Tech Rally group on Yahoo by Ray Wilkes in August 2004.

VW Center Console Storage Compartment

Fill that gaping hole in the VW center console with a handy shelf.

APPROX. MODIFICATION TIME: 1.5 hour

PARTS LIST:

All prices are pre tax.

Plywood <$2
Two 2.5” deck screws <$1
Optional pan wastebasket <$1
APPROX. TOTAL COST OF PARTS ≈ $4

INSTRUCTIONS:

This handy center console is easily made from plywood, using the two templates below.  The console shelf is held in place by two screws that go into the edge of the existing plastic lower part.

It will hold lots of items you would normally put in a glove compartment.  We use it for the record book, some maps, etc. and the handy pan acts as a wastebasket.

The shelf is open at the back and works for us.  However, small things placed on top of the shelf will drop down behind the wastebasket.  If you want this area sealed, extend the forward edge of the shelf to suit.

Drink cups still fit into the two holes of the original VW console.

NOTE: A full-size template for cutting parts is available from R. Wilkes.

NOTE: When printed, the following diagrams will not be correctly sized to scale.  Enlarge the diagrams, through printing or copying, to the following references: the pointed sides should be 7 1/4" from the notched base to the point.  The shelf should be 10 1/4" along its longest side.
