the footwell storage is not a bad idea, but I'm having a hard time thinking of items that would really benefit from this setup outside of a rare occasion.
How often do you drive with a passenger? Or should I say how much % of the time you are driving with a passenger?
what do you do with though when you do have a passenger for the big version? would be nice if it could store someplace a little easier. i guess you could throw it in the backseat if you have one, but something more clever like flipping around and hanging off something would ne nice.
If you click on the link to the project I did before, I had a floor mat sketch somewhere in the ideation section where it folds up to become a storage compartment. So when you've got your date to drive around, you can simple unfold them and turn it into a regular floor mat.
Also, that project, eventually, uses the seat back as the storage compartment. I just had to make it more complicated than it should be you know.
Actually, I was thinking that the rack can just be placed in the trunk as a trunk storage organizer when there is a passenger.
