When I first got my '95 Corvette, I purchased a cup holder from one of the aftermarket suppliers.  My wife was never completely satisfied with it because it stuck out too far into her leg room.  After seeing how the aftermarket model was mounted, I decided to make a new one from some 22 gauge sheet metal, sticky felt material, plastic door edge guards, and two folding cup holders that I have used on my 1990 K-Blazer.  You can see the results in the following photos and how it mounts without any drilling of holes in the Corvette.  I mounted the cup holders to the holder with pop-rivets.  I also used a metal bending brake to bend over about 1" all along the long edge for added strength to that smaller supporting part of the metal that goes all the way to the floor.

Nice Job!

We had the same problem. I purchased the same cup holders, but I didn't like the spacing on the passengers side. If I moved the holder to far forward, you couldn't get the beverage out of the holder!

I've purchased some sheets of black acrylic plastic, and was thinking of making a cup holder that clip onto the upper dash pad, and the cups would be in front of the upper AC ducts.......... Looks like it's going to be one of the winter projects......
