On the driver's side of the dash there is a small rectangular wood-grained panel that was just itching to have something mounted to it so I did.
There's nothing behind that panel to get snagged in a drill or anything. These are what I installed:
Power outlet: https://www.qsradio.com/shop-now.htm...egory=11543079
Dual 2.1 amp USB outlets: https://www.qsradio.com/shop-now.htm...egory=11543079
Double mounting panel: https://www.qsradio.com/shop-now.htm...egory=11543079
What they have available: https://www.qsradio.com/shop-now.htm...=0&sort=normal
I used a 1 1/8" wood bit (paddle bit) for the two big holes and a pin vise to drill the four mounting holes for the plate. I used the included self-tapping screws because the sockets themselves have a big nut on the back to hold them in place.
When drilling the two large holes there are two layers of plastic, the thin trim panel and a thicker plastic panel behind it.
I used 1/4" wire loom to run the wire from the driver's side to the passenger side where there is another set of power and USB outlets. It's pretty tight going from one side to the other so I followed one of the heating/AC ducts. I used a piece of home Romex as the guide wire because it's stiff but flexible.
I actually ran one set of power wires over and jumped the two added sockets together. I tapped into the same power wire for the passenger power outlet because it has a 7.5 amp inline fuse. I added my own 7.5 amp fuse for the new power outlets just ahead of that fuse because we don't have anything that pulls a lot of power anyway.
Yes, being a contortionist does help.
