home made cup/can holders?

My 46 willys obviously has no cup holders. I'm thinking about making something, I've got an idea for a basic simple cup holder, but I'd like to see if anyone else came up with some slick ideas. Anyone make some cup/can holders for their jeep?

I'll probably be mounting it on the roll cage or lower part of the dash instead of the floor space between the seats, due to heat from the transmission.

^^Funny^^

You could try a marine/swinging cup holder and weld or bolt to a split shaft clamp sized to fit your rollbar. The benefit is they will not be as likely to spill on the trail. I bought a NOS Tuffy consloe off of ebay that had the optional cup holders but they did not fit my CJ5 were they were supposed to be fit, front or back. I stuck some velcro on the bottom and now I can use it on either side of the rear wheel wells and I even have one of those cup holder fans that fits good in it.

Looks like 16 or maybe 14ga? Clever idea.
