I would like to keep my small items ( digital tire gauge, tubeless tire plug kit, small flashlight, etc) I'm a row of small pockets/organizer that I can use mounting tape to secure to the inside, side of the pet carrier. I prefer this location instead of the dash. I have looked high and low. Most organizers are larger in size and not suitable IMO. I'd like something w/4-5 pockets about 3-4" deep. It would be more convenient than having these items in a zippered pouch. Any purchased, converted, recommendations or ideas would be appreciated.

Tool roll? Lots of options on Amazon. Wouldn't be difficult to through-bolt one in unrolled state around the periphery of the pet carrier.

Mounting tape adhesive, even 3M's excellent VHB product, will eventually let go in the heat and vibration of the pet carrier.

One of a bazillion:

Yes my wife sews very well. She enemies offered, but I wanted/was thinking a heavier vinyl over material. I really don't want to chance messing her quilting machine any, so was thinking it easier if I could buy something and alter providing it turns out nice/correct. I'm kind of anal as how the item comes out. If it's functional and looks good, all is well. If I alter anything and it looks off, I'm the trash it goes and maybe try again. I have a couple tool rolls. That may be a possibly to cut a section off both are canvas and I was hoping to find blk vinyl or the likes.

Check out "Bucket Boss" at Home Depot . They are made for use with 5gal drywall buckets, but should adapt well.

A fellow MV'er hooked me up with what was basically a 'handbag organizer.' it was a semi-rigid piece of plastic that would take the contour of the pet warmer and was lined with pockets.

Worked wonderfully. Pink polk-a-dots and all.

It was something like this, but not exactly.

I was thinking of cutting the leg off a pair of jeans and stitching up some "pockets" for the tools. I've made a couple of tool rolls that way. Not YSL or Gucci fashionable but it's just as functional.

Shebalba, that one you shown would be about perfect. However I searched the Internet and found none like that. A single row of small pockets is what I'm after. Know what site that pic came from ?

Happy to help. Not sure about the online retailer credibility as it looks to be from a Japanese online retailer.

I'm sure I can find something similar locally.

I am thinking the hardest part will be getting something to stick to the inside of the Pet Carrier. It's notoriously difficult to get anything to stick to it solidly.

This is maybe a different take on the idea: https://www.amazon.com/Vercord-Handbag-Organizers-Organizer-Pockets/dp/B075FQH7P4

This French company offers a matching bag for the Piaggio Beverley 400:
https://www.topsellerie.com/en-us/piaggio-beverly-400-2021_1460.html (click on "tank bag")

Maybe your wife can sew in dividers to create small compartments?

However, I can't say anything about the quality and/or fit of the bag.

Maybe snaps affixed to the top edge of the PC and along the top edge of the "something" at regular intervals, a pretty secure setup yet removeable when one chooses.

Yeah, I think that might work well. Mechanical fastened, instead of with an adhesive.

Of course, pop rivets would work too.

I appreciate all the replies. Great bunch of members on this forum. Thanks for all the great suggestions and sites w/these sort of items. I bound to find something that will fit my needs. And thanks for the tip about snaps. I actually have some. I also have pop rivets of various lengths and sizes. Right about the newer plastics used these days on things like the pet carrier. Vechicle dashes and plastic panels are the same. Almost nothing will stick for very long, so snaps and or rivets would be a good alternative.

I would think just a traditional tool roll would get the job done.

If you truly wanted to ring the inner surface of the pet carrier with pockets, take a tool roll, add some grommets to the closure flap, drill a pair of small holes with about 1/4" of vertical spacing that lines up with the grommet spacing, and use zip ties to attach to the pet carrier.

This one, listed above already, has the grommets needed. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CGZFXL5N/ref=nosim?tag=modernvespa-forum-20&th=1

Thanks to everyone that responded. I've found the normal tool rolls to have too deep of pockets for the things I want to carry in the pockets. However some of the Mini-electrical tool holders may have promise. I'm still searching. I can't take a chance sewing on my wife's machine. It's too important to her and I'm sure I'll find something somewhere that will work. Thanks again.

I use a Biltwell EXFIL-0 tool roll for carrying small items on long rides. Electrical tape, connectors, wire, loom, shrink tube, cotter pins, small parts that sometimes fail, extra spark plugs, multimeter, fuses, master link for drive chain, crimping tool, wire cutter/stripper, small wrenches, etc. fully packed and rolled this will easily fit in the bottom of a pet carrier. It might be overkill for what you need. You decide.

I have a second larger tool roll for carrying larger wrenches, tire spoons, sockets, ratchets, etc. This one is too big to fit in a pet carrier.

Yo! If you need sewing done I'd be happy to help you out. If the tool rolls are too long I can shorten them for you. Negative on using your wife's machine, I've got you covered. Let's make it what you want not something half assed. It'll be my pleasure to help, not looking to get paid.

Thanks to all. I already have a small zippered cordura tool bag. It sits on the bottom of the pet carrier. I think I may have found the ideal thing(s). (4) capacity small 22 cal auto magazine holders, black ballistic nylon. And there are larger sizes available but this size looks just about right .If I attach (1 or 2) of these along the side(s) I think I'll be happy. And thanks -Rajabob For offering your services on sewing.

I'm a little late to the party but here is my suggestion:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GZX873Z/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1

It is tough, has a good zipper, internal and external loops and both a zippered and open internal pocket. Great all-around organizer for small items.

When I removed the evap crap from my 500 years ago I modified the cover or the canister by cutting the top closed part off and then reattaching it to its original position. It was handy for putting small items in. Does the BV 400 have the same evap system?

The inside of my BV 400 et carrier does not have any protrusions. Everything is rounded and flowing perhaps a little lumpy, but for the most part very well laid out. I think the evap system is buried below.

I know on the MP3 400's the evap canister was located towards the front. Maybe the same on the BV? IDK.

This is what my pet carrier looks like. Nothing to remove for more room. Lumpy but smooth rolling bottom.
