Ride: Falcon

Location: Aberfoyle Park
SA, Australia

Recently my dad was driving the falcon (gone up a step from the VY, LOL). He had a an of coke in the cup holder and hit the brakes. It threw the can of coke all over the dash and carpet.
My question is, what can i do to fix up the cup holders in the EF/EL?

ok here's what i just did and it works like a bloody charm,

heated up the locking arms just enuff so i could bend them in slightly, then i grabbed the trusty old Dremel and just etched in the grooves a bit more aggresivly so it "LOCKED" into placed well.

the pic with my hand in it you can see i have applied a heap of pressure and it still stays up.

i think even my X-drilled and slotted with braided lines are gonna have trouble gettin 2 large cokes from maccas to tip.
