Default 92-99 Cupholder idea

I'm gonna produce myself a cupholder thursday/friday when i'm in the cities.

One piece, plexi/acryllic sheet, It'll require no drilling, cutting or anything.

I hope to be able to hold a 32oz, without problem, under good manuevering. I'm not saying you can autox your slurpee, but who knows

Any other recommendations, ideas, or requests? I may produce these and sell them to those who are interested.

room for a 2liter? I'm a caffine junkie and I often have a 2liter of dew in my hand but when I'm driving I only have a can since I don't want to have a bottle in my lap, lol.

"Hi, my name is Ed I have a problem" (everyone) "hi Ed!"

Mine will hold the biggest of cups, and they don't come out on sharp cornering maneuvers. And all I had to do was slightly modify a store-bought cheap part that matches my interior.

slightly visible in this pic.....looking for more.....




The bigger they stretch to hold a big cup, the tighter they hold. I don't even look. It'* an instintive reach to use them. They've been on there 2 years with big gulps, and never came loose, and never dropped a drink. I have them in my Honda now, too.

I pulled the rubber strap out that normally hooks in the window channel, then cleaned both surfaces and used 3M Body and Trim tape to hold them on. For the Honda, I trimmed the top edge so that slot is gone. The weight of the cup actually rests on the 'hump'. It'* also naturally positioned so if it DOES come loose, it hits your leg and goes nowhere. But it'* not so close that your leg rests on it.

Used to run my water injection. Current version of water/methanol injection doesn't use them. So the switches are now Gtech, front radar, rear radar. LED'* on when switch is on. Beats fiddling with little switches on components, or tryhing to reach the rear radar.
