Isn't very useful when I have a passenger in the car, but when I'm driving it by myself (most of the time at the moment) it works pretty well. I think I got it at Big Lots for like $5- it's pretty similar to this from Autozone.

    When I have a passenger in the car- they get to be my cup holder. :P
    Hahaha, I laughed because I use the same thing and feel the same way. I hardly ever drink anything in my DeLorean with the thought of spilling things inside my car. If I ever do, I buy a screw cap type drink so I don't spill. But if I can't avoid that, I do use the wedge type 2 cup holder unit on the link and I love it. It also fits in the storage compartment when I don't use it.

    Proto where are you at with your "prototype" holder?
    Ummmm, errrrr, ahhhh, welll.

    I've got a great prototype. Will mount same as original tray (just two screws), removable cup inserts (easy cleanup for spills) etc. etc. But right now, the prototype is smooth. I wanted to be able to cast it with the vinyl grain so that all it would need is to be dyed black or grey and would match the console. Haven't found a good way to get the grain on it though. Casting it smooth, then wrapping it in vinyl would be a pain so I haven't cast the mold. Open to suggestions.

    The easiest and cheapest way to make cup holders in the D is to use the stock cup holders that came with the car - that everyone has.

    The space between the seat back and the pontoon near where the seat belt bolts to. It easily holds one or two 20oz screw on cap bottles. It can also hold the drive thru cups as long as you don't get the "super suck" size. Normal aluminum cans fit as well but are not tight so they may spill.

    Made some progress on the cup holder mold today. Best of all, I think I resolved by texture issue. Stay tuned.
