Default Secret Hiding spots/ storage compartments in Impreza?

Where have people been installing extra cargo areas, or hiding spots in their cars? Ive had my impreza for about 5 monthes now, and one think i noticed, compaired to my last car (MKV GTI) is the lack of storage space...
I was thinking about constructing secret compartment in the door panels that can be accessed from the small slot compartment at the bottom of the door card...(front door cards).. anyway if anyone has come up with good spots to store stuff, post it up! b/c i need to get some ideas on how i can expand my cars storage capacity

The IC spray tank is hidden in the trunk through a little peel back integrated cover that has extra room and you'd never notice it.

i hide my nug in the shifter boot area, my buddy got rolled on his way to Arizona in his wagon though with a half o stashed there... canine came into his car and started biting the **** out of his shifter nob and scratching at it. cops know where your "secret spots" are. I suggest buying a airtight space case.

OP, the door panel idea is neat. I know in my bugeye there is a lot of space in there.

I saw someone do a custom gauge install where the passenger side airbag rose up on command, exposing the gauges. If you made a pocket under there instead, it'd be super sneaky.
