Fantastic! Love custom look and touches
Bottle top sits just in front of dash. Water bottle, tumbler, or can should be fine. This is the furthest back i can place the cup holders and have them symmetrically side by side without worrying about clearance from the diagonal frame under the cover.Those cup holders may be too far forward and will be under the dash.
Put the dash panel in place before you commit to that spot.

I didn't really take detailed measurements. I made a cardboard template of the tunnel cover and from under the tunnel, traced the 3/4" tube on to the bottom side of the cardboard. I then used a compass to draw a circle the diameter of my cupholder that would fit between the 3/4 diagonal tube and the side tube. I then drew another circle the same distance from the front wall of the tunnel and the side wall from the tube to make sure that it was symmetrical front/back and side/side. Cut out the holes and test fit the cupholders. Then I held the cardboard template over my aluminum cover and traced the circles onto it.Looks perfect! What measurements did you use?
should I be looking for a straight or 45*angled thermostat housing/waterneck?
I found a rotating 90 degree. For me the brackets I used would not allow for a straight housing. Rotating 90 seemed the most versatile. Also it's easy to put the thermostat in backwards make sure its facing the right way. The thermostat may or may not have a small hole in the the flange. If it does not you will need to make one. Lots of advise on the forum.
