hey dudes, I wanted to do some mods that aren't permanent buthey dudes, I wanted to do some mods that aren't permanent but didn’t look like crap either. I ordered some blue leds from superbrightleds.com, thank you very much, and put them in my middle vents. I removed the cigarette lighter, the one from the dash and replaced it with a 35mm film canister for toothpicks. Still wanting to be able to use that lighter for various 12 volt stuff, I moved it under the cup holders and connected a 4 outlet one that’s under my drivers seat. Then I put a mini fridge (it’s really mini) in my trunk in one of those foam compartments. I kinda wanna add a cigar humidor in there, but I think that’s a little much. This is my first time modding the tC and it was good fun. If anyone wants pics, I’ll take some and post.

but doesnt the fridge turn off when u turn off ur car???...cuz thats too bad it would be real nice to get back to ur car on a hot day and have an ice cold "POP"(coke) sitting there. but i guess it would run out ur battery. someone needs to mod one up so it stays on.

The fridge does turn off when the car goes off. I thought about wiring it so it's always on, realzied I didn't know how and then figured I wouldn't want to cause I know I'd forget about it and would be calling AAA twice a week. Besides, it's more for road trips or short trips to the gym.

forgot to say that I'm gonna either cut a hole in the current trunk floor cover ( don't think I'm gonna do, but it's an option) or make one out of plywood cause I'll be attaching a amp or something soon. Then I'll need paint the cover or something or another, have a few thoughts in my head..........

only took me 3 months, but a few days ago my lovely girlfriend and I cut out a replacement cover from MDF and covered it with some heavy felt type material. It isn't the same exact colour, but I think it came out pretty darn good. Now I can fit my guitar in without trouble. I also replaced the toothpick holder from a 35mm film can to a small piece of pvc pipe painted black. The cigar humidore is still up in the air. Here are the pics:









let me know what you think

I like toothpicks and the fridge holds about 10 cans of pop and fits into the foam in the trunk without any mods.
