Wink Custom Coin Tray Switch Box

I installed some blue cathodes and LED's in the ZTS and was having trouble finding a suitable place for my rocker switches. When I had an '05 I hid them inside the flip down CD compartment.

I decided to go with the pull out ash/coin tray and got to work fabricating a little box before realizing there was a write up for this already. I looked it over and actually like my way better though, it leaves me enough room to still put coins in.

I've got another light up switch on the way from oznium.com so they will match, and I'll post some night time pics later to show the interior all glow'd up.

Anyway, here are some pics...









Sorry for the crappy BlackBerry pics... I'll get quality ones up soon.

EDIT: My girlfriend showed up with her camera so here are a couple more...





Comments welcome!

Pretty cool. Looks like a teeny tiny speaker box. lol

I like the idea of taking that lid thingy off the ash tray too. I was curious how you were going to access the buttons.

Thanks, I'm definitely going for a cleaner look now that I'm getting a little bit older. (I only just turned 23, but I'm feeling old already)

I have always been into modding, here is a pic from my first car back in high school...



Now I'm just trying to change up my style to be unique but still very functional.

I like how you did this, but I think it would get old pulling the tray out all the way to get to the switches.

I pull it out to put coins in or take them out all the time, so this doesn't bother me at all. To me this is better than drilling holes somewhere visible and having to stare at an ugly switch all the time. The switches and lights are all hidden so it looks stock but can look modified when I want it to as well.
