Saw this mod on a ruckus forum website while searching for tasteful solutions:
http://youtu.be/WZ_OMk4thdo

Found one on eBay to give it a try. It's a Saab/Subaru cup holder. Found mine for $35 shipping inc.

In the final paint and install stages. Here are some pics to get an idea of what's involved.

cup holder opened


areas cut out

That is a great mod!

That cupholder is straight out of my Saab 9-5. It will hold a 20 oz bottle very securely (especially the contoured Coke/Diet Coke bottles), but it has a hard time handling large cups. I haven't had any issues with drinks tipping, but this is in my car.

Report back to us with your findings. Others will be looking at this closely I think.

Just a note, when looking for black silicone if you ask for black caulk they'll think you said something else...ask my wife.

How does one embed youtube video for future reference?

That's why proper enunciation is important.

(I'll go with this reply though so many others came to mind) 😝😳
