I tend to kick the storage compartment infront of the drivers seat. Has any one come up with creative protective solutions?

How long can painters tape be left on?

I have taken it out (seat bottom removal) but I put it back in (after PPF). Now 2 year later, I have never put anything in it, and occasionally bump it with my left heel, when driving. Therefore have thought about taking it out. FWIW, its 2 small hex or torx screws on the back wall of the compartment. They are hard to see.

I keep car registration, insurance card and door opener in it. Haven't had any problems. You had better clear it with the wife before you do anything.

Carbon Series cars don't have that problem because we did not get that compartment. We also did not get the cup holders.

All elective surgeries are on hold. Any other suggestions?

I find the storage is useful for docs, wallet, glasses etc.

So true. I mean, Is there even a place to put your proof of insurance and registration?

Do you guys not realize you have pockets on the back of your seats?

Yes, which is why there is nothing in my compartment.

Where have you been Dr Frank? Shmee told us about it last year when he took his seats out! He even posted photos & kept his documents in it while traveling across the US!
