Smile cobb AccessPORT dash mount

i got bored this weekend and made me a mount to hold my access port. i used quick steel and a cardboard cut out to make the back plate and attached an L bracket with jb weld and mounted it in the car.i have no access to a welder or a cutting torch so jb weld and quick steel was the best choice for me. so if anyone else is like me and wants to make a mount for the cobb but no access welding/cutting tools check my pictures in the post and feel free to give it a go and make your own. enjoy

Thats pretty good. I have something similar, but was lazy and bought a phone holder from Best Buy and it holds my AP perfectly, and its on the driver side of the center console, a little easier and more convinient IMHO.

ya i thought about mounting it on the other side but for me it fit me best on the pass side of the center,it felt more finger friendly there then on the other side near the keys. i felt like i would run into issues in cramped space in that area.

Spend all that money on your car, but yet you won't upgrade to a free browser?

rex2002 I have seen similar setups, but they used high dollar stuff and even then didn't hold as well..

Nice fab OP.

This is what I use.

Yes I know.. a little pricey but works well and gives the little man $

Pretty sure it will work on Subies as well.

I will have to take a pic of mine and show you were its at, its in the cneter console vents, closest one to the driver side. Close to my other guages that are mounted where the clock used to be.

looks nice.. i think my total setup cost was no more than $25 bucks.
quick steel $8
jb weld $5
bracket $3
Velcro $4
spray paint $3
and most of this stuff i had laying around in my garage for years so it felt free to me when i made it..
