So I don't know if there is supposed to be a cupholder insert for the rear of the center console, so with an extra driver insert I made one. Its not perfect, but ALOT easier to clean if the kids ever use it:

A razor blade and about 5 minutes, trimmed all the tabs that are vertical and used scissors for the rest of it. The console has a "slope", but overall I am pleased with it. When I asked my wife about how it looked, she said "You mean it wasn't already there?" So it must look pretty good.

Exactly! She is a very observant person as well. I had to deep clean the car when I got it 2 weeks ago, and the slob that owned it before me had no idea what soap and water was!!! The inside of that cupholder got the pressure washer treatment when I took the console out of the car!!!!

Well after taking out the seats and the center console and using a shampoo machine with a upholstery attatchment, the inside literally smells and looks like new. Not a single stain anywhere. Took 2 days but it was worth it for sure.

I tired and it still has the smell on some days....I gave in and got some carpet out of a parts car...The swap will be soon.

Good idea, my next thought was a new headliner and new carpet, but I was lucky and 95% of the smell is out, I shoot some Ozium in the clean air cabin filter with the blower fan going from time to time, it does wonders!!!

I'm a firm believer in Febreeze or febreeze like products. I used it in my Focus a lot when I smoked and you can barely tell it was smoked in ever.

O.N.A. (Order Neturalizer Agent) as a liquid works well and is industrial. I put some in a pump sprayer and spray the infected areas. Turn the fan on high and close windows for a few. Then let dry with windows down.
