Now that you completed this project, is the harness that you tapped in to for power accessible from that front panel under the console? Or must the console be taken apart to add the power outlet. It would be nice if ran in that area and could just be pulled out a bit and power and ground wires connected and soldered in.
We am considering a 2010 since can get a bit better price than a 2011 but actually the location of the power outlets has been a big negative in our book. If we end up with a '10 I would want to do this.
You can buy those power outlets and cover alone from Lexus. I wonder if you could take the 2010 panel, drill 2 proper sized holes and add 2 outlets.
Thanks for any advice you can give

Reason: add question
I was looking at adding an USB style Aux. jack in our '10, without the Nav. package.
Turned out the head unit required changing as well so I let it go.
'10 RX 350
'71 Buick Skylark - Old School Torque SOLD !
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming: "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!!"
Looked up part number at Sewelll & Lexus of Atlanta: 58818A. There are 3 variations for the ivory, gray or black interior colors and there may be variations depending on if you have a Japan or Canada built car. I would call to be sure you have the correct one before ordering online.
You can ground the negative wire to any bolt or screw that touches the metal floor.
