And the best part about it, isn't this a few hundred dollar option Scion offers? All this cost was literally less then $10 in LEDs, and about an hour worth of labor.

I'll see if I can't get one today. The LEDs are not obnoxiously bright without a bottle in there, either. It creates a nice soft glow at night, but the LEDs aren't bright enough to grab your attention away from the oad. Came out a lot better then expected.

It's not my style, but I have a suggestion for you. Instead of butchering you cup holder inserts, why not leave them in place when you drill out the base for the LED's? This would locate your holes and you could always redrill them a few sizes larger if you are concerned about alignment issues. Just a suggestion.

Yea, I realised that after I cut mine all up, but oh well, still holds drinks fine.


And I used the cheap little black LED holders.
