    I once used a vent mount, not very good in the winter. The phone actually overheated. A none issue for me now, as my Si has wireless charger and Nav so the phone just gets thrown onto the charger pad.

    Prototype is done! So I 3D printed the front piece which actually captures the phone, I then bought off Amazon molding plastic and used it to get the shape of the center console pillar. Here's a link to the plastic. If you've never used it you gotta check it out for your next project. This stuff is incredible. At 150° it turns soft and you can mold it however you like, once it cools down it turns harder than hell. You can then drill it, sand it, do whatever you want to it. And, if it doesn't work out you can heat it up and try again.

    Here's what I came up with.:

    The way I have it mounted is Velcro, this way in case my leg does bump it, it'll just "break off" and not damage my interior.

    My next goal is go back down to my old college (go Bobcats) and 3D scan my design so then I can easily print a clean, on piece part that'll be ready to install in any civic with the same center console.

    I LOVE THIS placement with one minor grip... Can this design be reversed and placed on the passenger side of the console? I don't want to have a phone right next to my steering wheel like that and I don't touch my phone other than to put it back from sliding around the center cubby area...

    Kinda sorta. I got the piece I'm mating the holder to 3D scanned. The file is a PAIN IN THE _______ . But I hope to have it fixed/healed soon so I can get something going next week. Below is a picture of the file

    Nice... Can you please make one for the other side of the console? I have a Type R which is of course 6MT and the position you have would be in the way of the shifter...
