    Anyone find a useable, inexpensive organizer that fits in the yacht floor? I'd like to find something that fits the space inside the yacht floor well that provides a few (configurable?) compartments for loose change, pens, notes, tire gauge, sunglasses, etc. As is, these items have a tendency to jump around when I hit the go pedal. ;-)

    Some other TMC member suggested these..

    I bought two of these: Piel Small Jewelry Box & Reviews | Wayfair

    edit: the dimensions are-- you should confirm this will fit in your car -- I bought these last year, so the size could have changed.
    • Overall: 2.5" H x 6" W x 6" D

    I also had then monogrammed (free) Two of them fit pretty nicely in the yacht floor area. Here's what they look like:

    While waiting for the Tesla console, I purchased the following: Amazon.com: Diono Travel Pal Car Storage: Baby

    Not fancy, but does the job and fits the well perfectly.

    I bought the same thing after seeing it mentioned in an old thread. It works great, but it doesn't quite fit perfectly - I had to bend the cardboard at the front to squeeze it into the well. Doing so actually created a gap that I fit a bottle of hand sanitizer into, so it worked out well anyways. For only 10 bucks, I highly recommend it.

    Yep, the bend in front creates another pocket:

    Wow. I'm surprised that after this post by Bonnie:

    that thread didn't explode. It certainly had the potential to.

    I thought it would have some creative entries, but nada. Dry crowd.

    Have you seen the magnetic plate with the different attachments. I read it's very secure and has lots of options.

    Sad really, but apperently there are not many TMC oriented AFOLs around (apart from myself), or are there?
    Unfortunately I don't own the Tower of Orthanc set, because that would be a great starting point for parts (black) for a custom Lego CCI for Model S.

    My brother-in-law & nephew just rented some of their models to a film studio for a pilot.

    Wow, very nice. Love the windmills too.
    Perhaps I should try and start a MOC project "Model S", based on one of my Technic car chassis'...

    Judging by the arsenal you carry around, you seem to live in quite a dangerous surrounding ;-)
