Cup holder is a good idea!

I haven't got the wiper cover yet cause I still may just delete the whole system, that and eventually going RHD.

I was thinking the other day about asking you to make a speaker holder to put 6x9's in the space behind the location of the power seat belt bs. I was thinking it would take a little thicker material then what you have been making things from though.

Silvia. IIRC from the article it's the rare cup holder option. Not sure if it was dealer or factory installed.

Harrypotter, I'm not sure what space you are talking about. Is it the space behind the console? Also the wiper covers are thin due to the complex shape and the fact that it's not a structural item. Making a speaker holder from something thicker wouldn't be a problem.

For OP- maybe something like this but with a closed bottom?

I decided to make one for the ash tray first since there was a lot of interest in that style and I made some progress on that today. Hopefully I'll be able to do some more tomorrow. I'll post a pic once I have something worth looking at.

A single cup holder that replaces the ash tray would be nice. I usually just take out the ash tray and use the hole but does not work well with styrofoam cups.

i dont like the ash tray loaction, that would make your arm awkward like s2k's cup holder while shifting, yeah you can get used it. But i say for the arm rest holder or the door panel one, but shit looks complicated, or maybe make the arm rest a flip back, strengthen the lid to support drinks etc so you can place drinks on the underside of the lid.

^ That's nice but I actually use my armrest for my arm... The ash tray is really the perfect spot IMO.

And you don't need two cup holders. Your passenger isn't driving so he/she can hold their beverage haha.

I don't agree with any beverages in the center console region, my arm is too active around that area and sometimes I like to rest my arm on the armrest (go figure).

That passenger side door panel cup holder is perfect IMO, but would only work for power window door panels. Manual crank lever would get in the way most definitely.

i would say the cup holder insert in the armrest(where you have the lid open) would be a good place to start. so you can have your armrest without holes on the top, and your drink wouldnt get in the way of your shifting.

the door one is pretty cool idea but i have manual windows =\ so iono if itll get in da way

No bottom... your drink sits right on the tranny tunnel > nice and low, out of the way of your elbow during shifts. I have a couple if you wanted to make a template, both 180 and 240sx out of 6061
