It`s really hard to tell with a computer picture because it has backlight which real material doesn`t have.
I have never been able to get close with material color from a computer picture.
I don`t mind sending some samples if you like.
I`m going to go down to the local boat dealer and look into something like this.

I`m also looking into finding a way to attach the front of the cupholder because I think there might be a better way.
I`m not sure about using velcro tape as I`m not sure if it would leave a residue on the console plate if you wanted to remove it.

Now that looks really great...I've been watching this thread for a while hoping that there would soon be a way to integrate the accessory power into the cup holders like that. Even gets it right out from under my arm when I've got the GPS plugged in, and looks really sharp. Looks like I'll have to put back a little coin and order one of these real soon. How much extra for this option?

It will be about 15.00 more.
It works well because the electrical prongs on the back are the same as on the stock cigarette lighter.

Ok, guys here is the improved version.
The only difference on this one is the addition of the power outlet, but I have developed a new way of mounting the cupholder and it requires "no straps"
The picture below shows it mounted complete and it is very sturdily attached.
It may take a couple of minutes longer to mount but it`s worth it.
It attaches to the stock screw holes where the stock plate attaches.
You just remove the plate and remove the liners from the cupholder and use the same screws through an angle bar.

Thanks Tbone, I`m always trying to think of ways to change or improve something.
Some work, some don`t.
I think I just about have the cupholders and the console doors the way I want them.
Now, to try to work on my glovebox.

Here is Jim`s set going out, which I think is going in a chop-top.
I think the LSX emblem turned out really well.

Rick, I think the stock plastic piece would fit, but you might have to cut the bottom flange off that the middle screw goes through.
I think you would just have to run the screws on the sides into the ABS plastic backer.
I am going to try to install mine sometime.

Check your paypal but hold off a couple of days as I may want to order the improved version with the lighter socket.The strapless design is much better looking than before so I applaud you for your constant upgrades.On one hand the socket gives you the liberty to use your GPS but on the other I believe the armrest looks a tad cleaner without it. I'll decide in a couple of days.

I like the look of the your console door, and it solves the warping problem, but I really also like the built in holder inside the stock door. With the stuff I keep in it, things would dump out everytime I opened the door if it did not have the inner compartment. Keep me posted if you can get your door to work with the inner compartment installed.

How much to retrofit for the new mounting (if possible) and for the outlet?

Another option would be to buy another exact copy and put it in the other fiero, but I would like to see about retrofitting first

I have an Indy Fiero. Like the light gray cup holder. Want to know if you offer cup holder inserts in aluminum or stainless?

Ron, the dealer where I get my cupholder liners carries them in stainless steel.
They are a little different in size so I will have to get one and see if they would work.
It looks like they would run about 10.00 more for the pair.

I have had some inquiries about doing the custom lettering etc like Jim had done on his console door with the LSX.
In order for an image to be sewn on it has to be digitized, which runs 65.00.
If you are willing to pay that, then once the image had been digitized you could basically have that sewn on most anything you want.
If a club or group wants to get together and chip in they can get their logo etc sewn on.

Got my glove box door and cup holder installed today. I was able to use the factory pocket on the new glove box door. I had to trim about 1/4" off the top of it to get the door to close properly. I used the stock screws to attach it to the new door.




I need to clean up the trimming but it opens/closes great.

I decided to order my cupholder/armrest without the lighter socket. It looks good with it but when you have the lighter or GPS plug in it, there may be an obstruction to using the arm rest or grabbing the shift lever or the cups. My plan is to hide the lighter outlet at the bottom of the ash tray. Its out of sight there and I never smoke.

I don`t know about you guys who have bought these cupholders but I have found on mine with a large fountain drink, if I had one of those flex straws I could drink soda without even lifting the cup out of the holder.
I have a pretty tall charger plug for my phone and when I use it my arm rests on the passenger side of the plug kind of across the pad.
But, then I have an automatic so I don`t have to shift.

Received mine last week. The quality is Very Very good. I had a bit of an issue understanding a problem with the deeper cup holders, but Mike was able to figure it out quite quickly. They tightened down very nicely. The color matched up very well. overall, an awesome job. Thanks.

How about an option for a second outlet in the front, or an alternative spot to put the outlet?
