I could never find anyone that had them either in NOS or after market. I had considered doing them in carbon fiber at one point.

Why not upgrade to SS cupholders?

They are like $10 each last time I looked.

Then add this little upgrade for good times:

I took mine off and took it to some friends that do fiberglass work. They built me a new one out of fiberglass with the vent. Looks good and I just added stainless cup holders that a sporting goods store sells.

Would they make another one? I need one too.

I doubt it. They can't make any money off of them with the time it takes to hand make. They built me a dash and the engine vent/cup holder.Would they make another one? I need one too.

That engine box drink holder doesn't look THAT hard to fabricate.

Y'know, if you could get all the dimensions on paper, that cup holder looks like something a sheet metal shop could bang out in a couple of hours.

I was thinking the same thing. I could waterjet one in stainless or aluminum if I had a CAD drawing. You would have to then take it to a sheet metal shop to have the bend put into it. At that point you power coat, paint or cover it in vinyl. Another option would be to do it in luan and then fiberglass it. I've seen the local stereo shop boys make some pretty impressive enclosures this way.

The problem with all these options are that they cost a ton to do if you're not doing it for a friend or for yourself. I could CAD one up and do all the other things needed to have one ready for you to drop in but you'll never want to pay me near what I'll have into it after my labor and material.
