The MDP van has been great to haul furniture, boxes, full sheets of plywood, as well as our bikes and the greyhounds. What it lacks is a center console with cupholders.
It's a small thing, but after spilling full cups of liquid including hot coffee and water, it was time to fix the cupholder situation!
This project is very unique to this vehicle, but it might spark your imagination as to how you can customize your own car or truck to make it function better for you.
Plus, this build features some really cool adjustable cupholders that you just may want to get for your own beverage transportation.
Before the MDP van, we would either have to have the plywood cut down in Home Depot to where it would fit in the car or bring the trailer. It's hard to believe, but we can fit a full sheet of plywood in the cargo space of the van. With the plywood home, we made all the cuts with our Makita track saw and track.
This custom build has made so much of a difference in the functionality of this van. It works even better than I thought it would. We now have the essentials at our fingertips--trash disposal, tissues, beverages and a place for my purse plus a place to stash less frequently needed items.
What would you customize to make your vehicle, or even your home more functional for how you use it?
