Printing a prototype cup holder to fit in my center console.  I'll update when I know if it fits properly or needs modification to the model.  I only have blue material right now, but have some black on order.

I bought my 14 year old a 3D printer last week for his birthday, he's been trying to print out starquests ever since.  We had to put it together and calibrate it but it was quality time.  Send me your file!

I can send anybody the file that wants it.  I had to make a groove in mine to clear the shifter mount, but a stock StarQuest won't need it.  I can remove the cut from the file.  Also, I did a version after the one in the picture that I put the Mitsubishi diamond logo in the bottom.  Need to take a picture of that one...... :unsure:

I went to the Tuesday night Cruise-In last night in Tulsa, OK. and saw a white wide-body with '83 hood leaving the opposite exit.  I was stuck behind cars on 91st Street and couldn't get into the parking lot fast enough...........

Oh well, I guess it's cool knowing there is another running StarQuest in Tulsa.

Actually started it and drove it a mile since bypassing the ignitor with the 4 PIN HEI unit.  Didn't backfire, pop or hesitate!!  Need to finish up the engine on the 740iL before I can get back to the Conquest, but at least it starts and drives....
