Rear Cup Holder Repair

I know there are a bunch of threads here on replacing cup holders, and those custom ones are pretty cool. I started this before anyone posted anything cooler, so those are worth checking out (Kyle's are cool for sure).
Anyway, here's what I did for a refurb of my existing one, pretty cheap and it came out great to match my dashboard work. Started with peeling the vinyl off the plastic and sanded off all the vinyl glue.Then I filled all the existing holes and cracks with black Plastex, primer and body filler to smooth out the imperfections, and re-drilled the mounting holes. I used the cover for a pattern, cut a piece of aluminum, with a center gauge hole, and sent that to the same guy that dipped my dash panels, so it would match.
