    this is my challenge now.

    i have a taurus dash mount combo change and drink holder.
    in some of our cars, the lowest tier of dash stuff is a cig lighter panel or a cig lighter combo system sentry, and in others there is the pop out ash tray / cig lighter.

    i removed my ash tray / cig lighter and found the optional storage cubby could mount in that opening. it makes it really nice to have a storage bin just forward of the shifter, and seems to make ergonomic sense.
    the objective was to free up where the storage cubby "was" typically on the upper tier of the dash.
    problem,,,- the depth of the storage cubby OEM location is retricted by 50% because of hvac duct work just behind it.

    this depth limitation restricts the design options to use that upper space for something else.

    I just take my 44oz soda and set it in between the seat and the console.

    I've added cup holders. After I deleted all the power options in my 86, I cut up a broken console plate and made a filler out of a 44oz cup. I planned to fasten it permanently but never got around to it.it worked good, but it wasnt worth the trouble.

    Now I think I am just gonna make my own center console with some wood, then fiberglass it like I do with my model airplanes then paint it up nice.
