Hey Ray-man, go to www.copycatcovers.com, that'll get you started. I have no idea who's there now, I'm sure anyone I worked with is gone outside of the manager who I wound up with at one point.

You need to stay on them, though. They will quote pretty fast, usually with an incentive to buy sooner.
Good luck,

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.

Rear Cup Holder Repair

I sprayed the cup holder assembly with textured paint, then sprayed with hunter green paint to match the interior green, replaced the cup holders themselves, and added an Alpine remote control for the stereo I just added. Came out pretty good, matches my dash perfectly, and the ONLY downside is that the air temp option in the remote control picks up the engine temp, not the air. But I never use that feature anyway...

Mounted one Alpine SWR-M100 10" sub in the closed bow area, and mounted my Alpine PDX-5M 5-channel amp directly beside it on panels I fashioned out of marine plywood, left over from my interior side panel replacement. Added a new refreshed cover in the dash and placed my new Alpine IDA-X100M into that, and I am done for the summer (so far)! The remote control for the back seat works great, ran the wires under the floor and added quick connects to the area for the engine cover so I can take the cover off easily. Great system, and even better for those areas that have only one station you can pick up over the antenna - the iPod/iPhone connector gives you full access to your music library from either the marine head, or the remote, with great scrolling and search features. WAY better than my old POS stereo.

And oh yeah...

Since I had the engine cover up for the remote wiring, I had to touch up those Corvette signs with some fresh paint...was bugging me looking at C E T T E as the only red letters on one side...I think there is some anti-anal meds I could take, isn't there?

I went with 3/4" marine plywood, but even with that, you'd need some type of center support to keep it from cracking if someone stepped on it. So far, so good for me, it might be heavier than the aluminum honeycomb, it's been solid and works great.
Good luck!

Great out come...did you have to send the dash panels to them or did they already have the measurements?

Hey Powerhouse - the dash panels were all original, I just shipped them to have them dipped. I didn't build any panels except the cup holder panel.
