I have a similar setup as WillWren'*. I never velcroed them or anything tho, so the one on the passenger side is usually rolling around on the floor after The Missus hooks her purse on it....

I only use the center cupholder now when I need one.

I got a cool idea from this thread since I suffer from the sad 96-99 door design. Wont' get to work on it soon...but I'll get back soon enough.

I have tried a 44 ounce cup and it works pretty well. The down side is access to the shifter
is not so good. But seeing as how it is a lazymatic this is not a big deal.

thanks, although the flash distorted the color a bit, it matches in color a great deal beter to the natural eye. I just need to finish the details and put a bit of a shine on it and I think it will be fine.

About 2 bucks apiece at a local store. Most auto parts stores will have them. I removed the strap that tucks into the window channel, and attached them with 3M body and trim adhesive tape (gray tape with the red backing). They've never come loose.
