Afternoon folks!

 

Not long now until I become a VX owner again after selling mine back in February 2014! Used to be a regular at the NW Meets, did the 2012 Highland Hoon and one year at the National at Anglesey. Fun times! Can't wait to catch up with people who are still knocking around here from way back then  :D  thumbsup 

 

Anyway, I digressed! The VX I had had a rather handy storage pouch thing underneath the CD player on the passenger side which I used as a bit of a glove box. The new VX i'll be getting doesn't have one and so far I've been unsuccessful finding what I'm looking for on Ebay etc!

 

How have others on here sorted the lack of in-car storage? Links and piccies would be much appreciated!

 

Cheers!

Matt

Welcome back Matt!! 
 
I fitted these to mine, ebay item number 202597712975 down the side of each seat.
 
Also fitted Turbo sills as the NA never had the bigger storage holes.

Hi Mark,

 

Thanks for the welcome! I might be down your end later in the year as you know I have family that live only a stone's throw from you (unless you've moved in the past 5 years?!)

 

These look good! I'm guessing they sit in the gap quite snug? I don't suppose you have any pics of them in situ do you?

 

Cheers!

No photos to hand but they seem to fit quite well for me, I can get my wallet and phone etc in them.

 

I'm just down from Colchester now. Always welcome, kettle always on. been bloody ages!

OK cool. Wonder if they do them with black stitching! Lol.

Oh right! So a fair distance from Orpington then!

Hi Matt,

 

I was going to suggest the same as mbes2. I have found them to be really handy for phone, papers, sweets even!

There should be a pic with this if it works correctly. Not great as it's dark in the garage but it should give you an idea. Only issue I found was the vinyl curled up a bit at the top after a while but easily fixed with some glue. And they are cheap.

Thanks for your replies guys. Those do look like a good option.

I'd have thought they'd have gone on the outside like Mark said.

Think I'll give them a go. No great financial loss if they don't work out.
