Ever since my son bought his '05 Elise, I have teased him for spending so much money on a car with no cup holder. Recently he drove his DD to work and left the Elise at home. So... I thought I should show him how a cup holder could be installed very cheaply. Jim

You should drill another one, in a new location, for 'cold beverages'. (Not sure exactly where that would be though).

And that's how Patricide was born... Some practical joke on a son's chariot thousands of years ago...

What's with the cushy seat pads? :shrug: :eek:
After 2600 miles in 5 days to the ToTD and back I felt a $6 Wallyworld racing dept. cushion may help tired buns. The same trip a year later proved me right. For long trips it is THE best improvement possible for this car. Jim

Pretty decent implementation, but that hole saw would not produce those curly-cue shavings.

Jim - that is one of the better practical jokes that I've seen... what was his reaction?

P.S. With a father like you, he is probably always on high-alert for pranks?

Great for hot coffee and hot beverages - not so great for cold drinks though. :eek:
Can't wait to see your solution too, to that one. I'm sure it will be interesting. ;)
