    Lightbulb DIY! Eyeglass holder? No problemo!

    Hi There!

    Because i wanted to have an Eyeglass holder or even for my Shades but it'll take time before i could get my hands on the item so i managed to DIY instead!

    Recycle is the way!

    First use a flat screw to remove the tabs from the upholstery driver side. Since i dont have a handle on this part.

    Then you measure as to where you'll put holes on the plastic.
    I only used the Circle hole to measure because the plastic is a bit short.

    Lastly for the cover,

    I put the blue string on the cover as a handle.

    And i cut the part on the plastic holder cover because it will not get through since the tab at the back of it is blocking it.

    Nice. It reminds me of what forum member Alex1a1f did with his:

    Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/361679577566

    Here it is installed. I like it a lot.
    I like reusing & repurposing items rather than throwing them away. This kind of thinking can lead to some pretty creative solutions.
