    Fitting X-box to astra G glovebox

    I'm wanting to achieve the above but don't really know about the fitment, i'e might be a bit big, if this is the case would chopping a section off the back of the glovebox work?also what would be the best way to fix it down?

    When I fitted my full size PS2 into the bottom half of my glovebox I choped the back of the glove box out so it would slide further in.

    You can't even fit a PS2 in an unmodified glovebox very easily. I doubt you'd get an Xbox in even if you did chop it up as there isn't much room behind it.

    Btw, an Xbox uses up about twice as much power as a PS2 so it's not really as suitable for in car use

    i dont think it'll fit, even with cutting the glovebox... but by all means try!

    if it does it'll be one hell of a squeese!

    I managed to get mine before, as you said, bit of a tight squeeze. Im in the process of builing mine into the centre console, i say im in the process, all i've done so far is extend all the cables inside. Need to get my arse in gear.

    I'm still not pleased overall I think while my centre console is in getting sprayed I'll have a play and see if I come come up with something better! TBH if I could free up just another inch I'd be laughing!
