I use it to store my wallet, perfect size and once the flap is closed on it most people wouldnt even know there is a storage compartment there so i guess it is pretty safe too. Hope i havent spoken too soon, if my wallet goes missing i know who to ask
my ipod sits in there nicely, wired up to the dension kit and no one knows its there. i had to drill a small hole at the back for the cable to go through but that was easy enough. now the ipod site there charging and hidden away - perfect !
I keep a pair of sunglass in there - definatly need the flap/door thing, a couple of times I have not put it down , then accelerated resonably hard & ended up with sunglasses flying out & ending up in one of the front foot wells.
your right i dont really put much in it but the screw isnt rusty, its off the battery cover when i had a problem with the battery goin flat a while ago and just left the screws out for speed incase she didnt start. but shes good now. she needs a good clean anyway, oh and incase your wondering the hair clip isnt mine either.
