A proper cupholder

Yesterday's project: a proper cupholder for our MB SMB. The cupholder came from the local auto parts place for $10. The base is cut from a piece of the floor that I removed when I took out the original crew interior. Works much better than MB's poor excuse for a cupholder.

Hi, I just wondered if you have any idea what these beds/ mattresses weigh? I want to replace my tiny couch with something of this type ( mine is the original and very heavy!) Id also like to reduce the weight by replacing the plywood base with something lighter but strong. Any thoughts on this? I have to lift it up to get to both water and batteries!!!
Thanks,
ConnieKat

You might want to look at this site for some ideas. This guy uses foam for building light weight cabinets. Maybe you could adapt some of his ideas for making a light weight bed frame.

Hi jage,
I would like to do something to add a bit of extra floor space. What I have in mind is a section of flooring that I can put on a hinge, and drop down from the side of my kitchen cabinet ( at floor level) to cover up the well where the step is. I plan to install a swivel on the passenger seat, so I thought this would help in making the use of the chair more comfortable to use.
Likely safer as well!!
Has anyone else done, or thought of doing this? If
so Id really like to know what your approach was.
Thanks to all,
ConnieKat
