    I have to agree with you the custom Teak cup holders add that extra touch. The pylon cup holder is a much better option than the small cup holders stuck up next to the windshield on the 190.

The engine started right up no water or fuel leaks I ran it for about 20 minutes here is a picture of the gauge readings they all look normal. The next test will be the Lake test.

    Thanks for posting the picture of your Limited with the domed graphics.After looking at looking at your boat and Chuck's boat I have to agree the Domed graphics would be a upgrade from the flat ones and would fit the better than new concept that I have been working toward.

    Here is a picture of of my prototype engine cover cup holder. we are going to curve the top sides in another 1/4 inch on the upright to give it a more contoured look. I am open to any suggestions and yes the final one will be made out of teak wood. Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_1287.jpg Views:	1 Size:	58.6 KB ID:	2699737

    RD, been following this thread and really enjoying all your updates! Let me know if you need help with that teak cupholder. Seems like you probably have that covered, but if not, I've got a full woodshop with CNC capabilities and can make pretty much anything out of wood. I'm guessing this would be a flat piece to defined thickness with custom cut profile.

    93 190 - The domed letters are not fluffy or soft. Merely a raised format that is all one-piece. A tougher product than the flat vinyl. I was skeptical but tried their product. Top notch now that I have them on.

    When I mentioned one-piece, I got a set of flat letters with the shadow (show below in the last two sticker photos) a few years back. Those came in two parts; the red letter as one sheet and the shadowing effect on a second sheet. Not user friendly for installation...actually a pain in the rump. The domed letters are all on one sheet, integrated with any and all options, etc. An easy install.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	Flat Letters02.jpg Views:	0 Size:	105.7 KB ID:	2699580 That's all I got. I think you will like the domed product. I am not crazy about their web site and if you don't see what you want, call them (they take only one to two weeks to answer or return an email). Once you get in touch, they will do most anything you want. Other than their lack of immediate availability, they are good to work with. I have sent several things back to them that I did not like (for a re-make) and they did not hesitate one bit. Good customer service in that regard.

    Custom made teak holder. Does not get in the way of anything (rope, barefoot boom, etc.). I made two of those with one stick of teak from Teak World ($68 per stick). Rock solid with the mounting setup I used.It is there until I remove it or until the cows come home. One is still in a box somewhere in the shop.
