    Not quite sure what you are asking but I got those cupholders out of a damaged console at the junkyard that looked to be about the correct size.

    Yes, I did do a write up a few years back when I fabbed it all up. I was just going through my picture library and for some reason I am missing a few pics from the build up, go figure.

    Correct, I cut cupholders out of a broken console from the JY and then cut out the ashtray section and grafted it in place.

    I honestly don't know what vehicle the donor cupholders came from, I got them from a broken console they had laying around, it looked to be about the right size and the price was cheap.

    Shakerhood nice work. Where do you purchase the fiberglass?

    I used the factory ashtray door and shaved off the lip that opens it. Gives it a nice clean look.

    You can buy Fiberglass in just about any parts store, you also need to buy fiberglass mat which is a tight weave cloth, it gives strength to what you are fabbing.
