Installing sentry SSD in glovebox

I relocated the factory USB hub below the HVAC blower, and plugged a USB hub into one port and extension cables into the other port, and was able to plug the T5 SSD into USB hub and route the wire up into the glovebox.

This way it's safely locked away and out of sight when the car is locked and i can easily access the drive to review footage.

Very easy mod, just had to 3d print a few parts to hold USB extension cords in the factory holes at the front of the console.

I made the parts available to order if you don't have a printer:
