This might be the coolest or dumbest mod yet, but I was sick of flicking my cigarette ashes all over the console because I couldn’t see my ashtray at night. My wife was storing some leftovers the other night and putting them in Tupperware. I asked her if she had any more of those lids and she said that there were about 20 of them in the basement in a box that she had no idea of what they fit on.

I took a few out to the FJ and found a couple that fit right into the cupholder.

Next I traced the size of the bottom of the ashtray onto the lid and cut it out.

Fitted the cut-out around the ashtray and made sure it fit in the cupholder.

See more in next thread...(LED, Ashtray and Tupperware Part 2)

Removed the front console section, drilled a hole and wired and fitted the LED.

Installed some foil on bottom of ashtray and cupholder for reflectiveness and put some spacers in the bottom so the ashtray wouldn't sit on top of the LED.

Put everything back together and tried it out.

Pretty cool mod to do to the FJ, but not much of a smoker or drinker.:simmadown:

The ashtray's the other part that goes in the cupholder.

Tell me if i got this right. You installed the led on the bottom then you covered it with the removable ashtray? Or are you using the cupholder as an ashtray?

The last picture, the one that looks black..., is the picture at night. It just glows, not exactly sky rockets or anything.

I guess one more picture might have helped. You didn't get to see the part where the ashtray went into the cupholder.
