Need your opinion

I was really getting tired of my sunglasses and other things sliding around on the tray in front of the shifter every time I went around a turn, so I came up with this idea. Doesn't fit quite right, so I might cut another one. I lined the door pocket too because things in there slide back and forth alot too. I used tool drawer liner I got at Lowes, costs around $7.50 for a roll.
I think it looks alright and the color is pretty close.
Let me know fellow forum members what you think, I'm looking for honest opinions.
Thanks.

Nice ! I did the same thing with foam from the craft store. Especially on our commander. There is a nice flat shelf on the dash that things would launch from.

The black foam took care of it

Re: Need your opinion

Neat idea. I might have to do something like this to mine.

Re: Need your opinion

I like it! I have the same problem, my sunglasses or pens or whatever seem to sprout wings when left there.

Re: Need your opinion

Thanks for the three opinions that I did get.
I was thinking that I might try taking the tray out all together and putting the liner in the bottom of the "well". The liner would cover the screw heads and I would get a little deeper storage compartment. Worth a try anyway, I've got lots of the stuff.

Re: Need your opinion

That could work. I might have to take a look at my spare counsel. I have some scrap ABS plastic here at work so i might be able to actually make a new plastic dish type compartment to replace the tray.

Re: Need your opinion

After about a week of not having to listen to things sliding around all the time and not having to pick up my sunglasses off the floor every time I go around a hard curve, I'm liking this idea more and more. I'm pretty pleased with this cheap, simple solution.
I highly recommend it.
