Default Front USB on a Pioneer 5050UB

Some minor mods can be done on any car's centre console and a front loading USB can be made for any car, this is for some people who dont feel comfy with the dangling extension USB thing.
The steps are below on how to do it,

A cut has to be made just about big enough for the male USB jack to pass, and so that the Female USB jack does not come out.

Couple of holes have to be made so that cable ties can be passed through, and it has to be reinforced on the plastic body using a Glue Gun.

Nice modifications! By the way who did this modification & who suggested?

For some days some innovative approaches/modifications are coming in TeamBHP.

Nice job satya. A little bit of finishing on the console would make this a terrific 'must do'.

yeah, this was a quick effort without precision tools of that size, I have bought a needle file set for the job now.

Excellent! How I wish you were in Delhi, Blueraven!! I would have sooo much more ICE... but on second thought, it's probably a good thing for my bank balance that you aren't!!!
