Thanks for the offer RedSIBarron. I'll hit you up if I run into a snag. Do you work at a machine shop? Just wondering since that cup holder of yours is aluminum and fit's like a glove.
I worked all day and still am not there yet but at least I made more progress. "Make progress everyday" is what I always say. Making these sounds simple but this really takes a lot of work. But I'll pay off in the end cause these are going to be bad-ass!

I am actually a transportation designer (any form of transportation, mostly cars) and prototyper. I would be making mine out of plastic, not metal. I've worked some with vac forming and there are a few tricks that help a lot. let me know.

naw speed, That's really creative. I wouldn't have thought to put one there. You should definitely finish it. Slick that baby up with a skim coat of bondo and put some black texture on it. It'll blend right in. Very trick.

I'm so used to pulling out the ashtray if I get a drink I'm good with that. I like that arm rest dual cup holder but 250 for that is nuts the door panel ones are sick!

Here's a pic of what the "cups" of my cup holders will look like. I just formed them today. These are not the actual parts though. They are actually undersized a little because they are formed over the cups I made that are actual size. Also the finished part will not be made from white plastic. This is just what I'm using to help get my moulds made.
There is still a few back and fourth steps with pulling a mould off of another mould until I get the final mould that I can make parts off of. I'm still working on the framework that will fit into the ash tray and hold this cup. It will probably be at least another week before I can make a finished part.

I'm getting really getting close to having the cup mould finished. I just have to clean it up a bit more. I also got to make the mould for the ash tray insert today and I'm hoping to clean that one up tomorrow along with the cup mould. Then I still have to form a cup and an insert out of the moulds and combine the two into the actual part. Sounds complicated but it's really not that bad, just really tedious. If I can I'll post a pic tomorrow of the parts I make after work.

Here's a picture so you can get an idea of what it will look like. This one is still two pieces. The actual part will be one piece if I can get this plastic to do what I want but these are proving to be rather challenging to make with my current setup. Sorry it's taking me so long but I want the final parts to be really nice so bear with me as I iron out the bumps in this project.

The one pictured has a textured base and a smooth cup. The actual part will be either all textured or all smooth. Which do you prefer?
