    Has anyone bought one of the Mirrorguard's centre glove box cup holders/trays for a Fiat Ducato?
    And if so, are they worth the price of £40 plus postage plus vat?

    I'm thinking of getting one and can't decide on whether to buy one or make one.

    It's rubbish Gav, won't fit most cups
    If you must then buy at a show where you can take it straight back once you realise

    Had one for nearly 3 years. Great bit of kit, holds travel mugs no problem. Got it at a show. Would recommend.

    And it were me that won it:D

    Pretty handy, had to put some foam tape around the edges to stop the rattling, but other than that it been well used(y)

    Check the edge of the centre box for knee clearance and sharpness before swing the chair round....ouch

    This is what I made from a seat drinks holder bonded to a cut down paint roller tray, it cost less than £10.

    The picture on their website shows it holding a normal ceramic mug and an can of Coke both of which look like they're a pretty snug fit. I wouldn't hold out much hope of our travel mugs fitting.

    I like the idea though so may have to pinch someone's DIY idea (y):D

    Looking at the photo of my central drinks holder it might not be obvious but there are two large round holes in the wood! You could size these to suit whatever cups or mugs that you use. The cups are not just sitting on the wood surface as this would be useless when driving along! We use the cycle holders for water or squash on each side of the cab!

    @Techno Sorry it's taken so long; here's the photo of our cup holder. Also, if anyone is interested & has an X250 with the fixed clip board, I made up one with a cut down A4 (plastic) clip board pop riveted to a piece of guttering down pipe & velcroed to the defunct one. At least it's now seeable (y)

    Yes you takes your choice but you need specific shaped mugs or costa coffee cups

    Thanks Chris, when it's removed it looks like a miniature starship enterprise, what doesn't show in the picture I packed the sides and rear with a strip of black pipe insulation,

    John.
