I was wondering if anyone has made a custom box that bolts into the empty compartment in the engine bay on the passenger side - on far left of engine bay. It is roughly a 12" x 10"wide x 9" deep, irregularly shaped area, with rubber molding on top where it meets the hood. There are threaded eyelets towards the bottom of this somewhat tapering compartment that look like they secure something via bolts.

I wanted to get a custom box made with a top (maybe even lockable) does anyone have any ideas of what type of shop to go to for this. Custom car audio shop where they build custom enclosures for speakers?
Any ideas?
Any examples?

They are attempting a group buy from Bimmian I believe.

1) Take the guts out of an old battery

2) Fasten to empty spot under hood

3) Place contraband inside (i.e. guns and drugs)

I am going to make one for the hell of it out of fiberglass. Once I make one, I can make a mold out of it and then easily make a bunch more. Carbon fiber is too damn expensive and it's a bit harder to work with.

Quite correct, thanks for the tip.
I sent payment and Bimmian only needs 10 people apparently so several are already in.
Sign up now to get it going.

To me it seems like a great solution to avoid dealing with the carseat in the back of a coupe.

I'll be such a good daddy one day!

:hi:
