Cup Holder LED rings
I know this topic has been brought up thousands of times, but it is my first attempt at cup holder rings for my Malibu....
Can I see peoples build pics, or diagrams they used or some ideas or suggestions of the best way to do it...

Thank you guys, your help and knowledge is always appreciated.

Bottom of the page - it took me a few tries to get the pictures to work, lol;

I used Ian's method to try it out only I used a router table and it works ok. I've heard from someone else that you can possibly get a local acrylic shop to make the rings in the .375 thickness for under $10 each. The .220 plexi/acrylic/whatever you personally call it is ok but I think I want it thicker.

That looks good! The problem I had with the thicker rings is that my back seat slides over the cup holders when I remove it. All personal preference I guess :)

Thanks Ian, couldn't have done it without your thread! I bought those same lights you did, only in white, and man are they bright! High quality stuff too!

Here are the jigs that I made for the router table and the drill press (not necessary). I cut the acrylic down to 4.5" squares first so I needed the jig for the drill press to make sure the holes were centered.
