Where's the cupholder? There is some law that requires all coolers on trucks to be equipped with a cup holder, and I think it also requires the cup holder to be empty cause the cups it was made for are no longer available.

Seems like there ought to be a Mr Coffy bracket too, the BobCat can run Mr Coffy. If yer buildin a Cowboy Cadillac, go all the way.

Fun project, Paul. Thanks.
I don't remember seeing anyone else mention HF's little roller, only the bender/scroller.
