Cubby box

Hi, Does anyone know of an easy way to fit a cubby box so that it is secure
, I have a 1990 defender 200 tdi . if i remove the plate underneath the
middle seat the box sits into this recess quite nicely but i don't want to
leave this plate out as all the road dirt will be hitting the bottom of the
cubby box, hope this makes sense, cheers Ian.

Re: Cubby box

Cheers Peter, I thought that it would have to be mounted on that plate just
wasn't sure so thought i'd ask, only thing tho is that once it is mounted on
to that panel screwing it back into it's position will be a tad tricky due
to lack of space to get a screwdriver in .
Cheers for the help and a happy new year to you and your family, Ian.

Re: Cubby box

Fitted cubby box today using wooden battons underneath then screwing in from
the sides, had to remove both seats to get at screws but it is in nice and
secure now, thanks for all your suggestions, Ian.
