Inspired by this post,,,, http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showpost.php?p=7770718&postcount=2 I put myself on a mission at the Rust Revival to find something to make a console/cupholder for the wifes Buick. While walking thru the swap meet I spy a 58 chevy marker light housing and immediately knew what its future would hold. Got it for ten bucks, bullet hole and all. When I showed the seller what it was going to be he replied "I love you rat rodders, you got some crazy ideas". Uh,,,,, thanks? Here's how it turned out. I notched the leg that connects to the fin trim to hold a voltage regulator cover, rounded the corners and made some brackets to hold it in place. (you'll see that better down below) I trimmed the flange around the cover back a bit and folded it the rest of the way over so there wouldn't be any sharp edges. In the background you can see a photo/pen holder from staples, the inner part is just about perfectly sized to fit the lens opening. Once they were shortened up and taped back together they fit pretty snug. These are fairly big in diameter but I always use a can cozy so it wont flop around. I ended up driving all over town and taking the housing into any store that I thought might have something that would fit. I could have made inserts but what the hell. Once I found these I walked up to the counter and set the housing down along with the pen holders, dude behind the counter scans the holders and picks up the housing, turns it over and says theres no tag on this. Yeah,, unless you sell 58 Chevy parts here your not going to find one. If you do have these in stock I'll take one..... He laughed. I added a 12 volt outlet to the other side as well, so you can charge a cell phone while still listening to the ipod thats plugged into the factory lighter. I cut the mounting stems down a bit and drilled/tapped them, made some straps to bolt it down with. You can also see how the VR cover is held in place. Here is it done and mounted,,, yeah carpets are a mess but its a droptop and we drive the crap out of it, leaves and dirt are probably gonna be a permanent fixture.... Hopefully this will inspire some copying!
