    I had mounting holes and rubber trim around it too but it didn't fit in the tight space that I had so I cut out most of it and epoxied it.

    I used a Dremel Stylus for the main part and finally a knife to make the edges. The top of one got a little scuffed as the dremel got away from me for a bit and went into my finger. So not just effort went into this but also some blood . I stuck the port with some epoxy and finally put some bondo in the back for additional support since you really need to push the USB cable into the slot so i didnt want the port to get dislodged.

    cheers.

    Haven't seen it anywhere else. Anyone used it?
    I haven't seen thie device before but I was going to try the same thing with my extra cigaret lighter. put a usb extension cable in there and fill the surrounding with hotglue or epoxy.
