Lawl, base radio/AC.

J/P looks good man. I wouldn't be giving up my card slots, though. Got my Grocery card in one, and my fuel prepaid card ($.10 /gal off) in the other.

No trouble in 5th gear... about 3 inches of clearance between the usb plug and the shifter

do you think you would be able to maintain 1 card slot? I use it for my parking pass.

I don't think so.. if you chop the trim up towards the bottom and use the top slot maybe but the cord ends up taking up the internal space of the compartment and it might impede card insertion/removal.

Side note, i used a piece of plexiglass to secure the back side of the panel to provide a little more support so the usb doesn't drop back into the compartment. I chose plexiglass because it was easy to trim and would help keep the sides of the trim piece looking stock.
