Nicely done :up:
How is clearance to your legs?
The only concern I'd have is the edge of the bracket close to your leg in case you have a mishap (crash).
You knee might not like that.

Only way I can touch it with my leg is if I put my right foot completely above the gas pedal. Not a place I'd ever put my foot while driving.

Interesting and well done. I personally just plan on replacing the rear power outlet with a dual usb port, as many things nowadays are powered via usb and few use a cigarette lighter port, but I might use your bicycle cup holder elsewhere. It looks like it's quite secure and adapable, didn't know they existed.

Sweet! That looks great, and thanks for the link to my post. You can also grab power under the dash by putting an add-a-fuse plug into one of the fuses there. That's where I grabbed the power for my subwoofer. Clean edges and nice paint, looks very first rate.

I suggest putting a US spec power port then plug in a low profile dual usb post. This way, you have both.
