Hey guys,

 

Just picked myself up a Minivation cup holder and planning on fitting it to my 98 MPI. I want to mount it under the dash rail by the door on the passenger side. But with the fuse box and bonnet release, it seems I would have to place the holder directly behind where the keys would hang. I'm thinking of cutting off the bonnet release mount and moving that somewhere else under the dash and putting the cup holder in it's place. Have many people done this before? What did you do to remount the bonnet release cable?

 

Cheers

I quite fancy one of these too.

 

I'm thinking of having a solenoid to operate the bonnet release, that way there's a button instead of a cable...

 

just a thought..

Manual override somewhere that doesn't interfere with your cup holder.  Rear bin would be where i would put it
