Hey Everyone,

If you own an EA-EB-ED series you probably know how annoying it is when you have a drink or esspecially a "COFFEE"on a long drive and yet you have no where to put it Well heres a mod for everyone who owns an early e-series.

Take a look at the pics, and tell me what you think?

PM me if you have any questions.

I will post up a Procedure in the near future.

Thank you. 8-) :lol:

That certainly will make it alot easier to eat my HJ's, light a smoke (i don't smoke) and talk on ya phone at the same time while driving HAHAHA!

That's great stuff right there, EA-ED owners rejoice!! What car is the cup holder out of?

Damn.. I wish I could do that, but I have a 5x7 inch split where that goes on my dash... part of the 5.1 surround..

perhaps I'll mod one into the center console somewhere..

Please post up the how to doc, as I was about to attempt to fit BA drink holder to my console, and this one looks much easier, and neater!

lol did this AGES ago :p its really simple the cup holder is just one off EBAY cost me 9$ or something plus a couple of $ for postage. simply cut about 3 cm off the back plastic off, and cut about 2-3 cm away from either side on the top (leave the bottom as a whole), it will actually wedge its self in really tight and wont move, as i said ive had this in for a fair while been VERY useful...

great work, and looks more reliable than the factory cup holder in my Fairmont which likes to collapse with every bump in the road :roll:
