Anyone know where you can get "universal" storage compartments with latching door? Something that could be put between/behind the seats.

Thanks!

I don't know of any but if you can build a car, you can build the box!

Here's mine. I don't know if this is to your liking. I made it out of an aluminum electrical panel box. I put a slant on the box so it looked more like part of the tunnel and less like a box. The lid is made out of 1/4" plywood with an aluminum liner. The whole thing is covered with carpet and held in place with 4 sheet metal screws to the tunnel aluminum. When I'm out somewhere, I throw the seat belts over it and it looks invisible. Detail: I made the lid about 1" deeper in the back and hinged it 1" forward so the lid sits flush to the back wall. Also, I did a mild radius on the front edge to eliminate the boxy look. It's really nice to have this storage space.

DWC has a rear box for the I2 Electrical system, really nice and no reason it couldn't be used for a storage box.

There's an idea. DWC can bend up something like mine with a plywood lid. Then you can cover it however you like - if you like the design.

Nice! I hadn't even thought about on top of the tunnel.....I was thinking about access in the back panel into the trunk area.

Great idea!

DWC actually sells that same box without the holes and they call it a "Glove Box". It's almost $20 less than the I2 box too.

I do like the idea of DMW's box, though, gives you a nice armrest too.

Dave,
I didn't know you had a storage box there. That's really cool.

Dang, I've looked at the DWC website several times and never noticed that you could get it in just the glove box version.

I like DMW's idea too, it would be nice to have an armrest that functions as a storage box.
