So this weekend I finally got time to work on my center console, I swapped to an STi console because I picked up STi seats and the heated seat switch is different (plus it just looks better than the WRX one). I originally dealt with the DCCD switch, but it bothered me since it wasn't functional. Originally I intended to put a phone dock in its spot, and had a mock up done..but after using it for a week I removed it (couldn't shift over the phone). I've been doing a lot of Alcantara wrapping so that was ultimately the goal, but first I had to make something for the DCCD switch spot. I ultimately decided to go with a change holder tray like the one on the WRX console.
Here's what my friend was able to make with a rapid prototyping machine (3D printed):
And how it fit in the switch spot:
The console has a little contour to it, so I used body filler and filled in the gaps and smoothed it all (made covering it easier anyway):
I picked up some genuine Subaru all-weather coasters and cut it to fit in the bottom of the tray:
All wrapped up and piecing it back together (note, the heated seat switch normal sits flush, but I shaved the mounting holes so it would stick up a little higher than the alcantara):
Also did the shifter surround to match. I didn't cut out the STi logo, but may in the future:
And all assembled back in the car:
