    Whilst we were watching everybody else picking up loads of raffle prizes at Stratford, I seem to remember one item was a cup holder for the Fiat Ducato that fitted over the drop down glove box, think they said it was made by the same people who make the wing mirror protectors.

    If my memory is right and I was not suffering from hallucinations from the gas and alcohol fumes, then does anybody know who makes them?

    I think it is Mirrorguards, but nothing about the tray on their websites...

    Can I just say those nice shiny mirrorguards from the raffle look lovely on my van :BigGrin:
    No.. I did not win, you just have to know the right people and cross the right hands :wink:

    I had one for sale, it doesn't fit a peugeot cab :( although I was told it would. Anyway I've started to modify it now (which means cutting slots and generally making a mess) to try to get it to fit.
    I'm also working on a very simple holder that will fit over the arm rest.

    Glad to hear it is working for you, I'm also glad to find I did not imagine it and that it does exist! I'll just keep my eyes open, it is such a small thing, but at times really irritating?

    Might see them at Stafford then, but at 30 quid and with rough edges it may not be the first item on the list of 'tat I have to have' that we seem to always acquire at shows

    I bought one too. Works well, not cheap and not particularly well made but very pleased with it. Sits on the pop up document holder which is otherwise not used.

    I solved the lack of drinks holders in the Ducato in 2 ways. I made a 3 ply plywood tray which fits in the central glove box which will hold 2 insulated drink mugs. I also fitted two cycle drink bottle holders that I bought from Halfords which compliment the aluminium finish on other parts of the dashboard.

    OK...... Ref these holders like the one seen at the Stratford rally / raffle.
    Definatly sold by the people who do Mirrorguards but are NOT listed on their website.
    Met the guy today at the Stafford show and he had them for sale. £38...
    Quoted Price is high due to tooling cost and small demand to re-coupe costs.

    The Mirror guard version is shite. I bought one at Peterborough and quickly took it back for a refund.
    It wont hold normal cups or mugs just costa coffee type cups
    The overhang of the dash prevents any flexibility.

    We saw it at Stafford as well, 38.00 a bit pricey, offered the cup holder and mirror guard for 135, saving 23 pounds. Almost tempted, but to be honest more by the mirror guards than the cup holder. Liked Abacist's version, looks smart.
