What's 3.5" in Diameter? (half door question)

To start off, I don't want to hear how big around your cock is.
I spent a half hour in Home Depot today trying to find something that was about 3.5" in diameter, 4-6" deep so I could put drink holders in my new half doors. Why 3.5"? Because hot beer sucks and a coozie is mandatory in AZ. No, I refuse to drink them faster for all of you thinking that. And I don't want to wear my beer either.
A 4" pvc pipe cap is too big, a 3" is too small. I'd love to find something like a closet flange for a toilet so I could have a little lip to screw the holder to. I suppose I could always make one out of sheetmetal the right diameter and rivet it one, but I figure someone out there can recommend something, preferably plastic for easy spill cleanup. Let's hear the recommendations.
Again, I don't want to hear about how much bore your cock has!

I probably have some nice pieces of stainless kicking around. 200% less heat transfer than regular mild steel - it'll help keep your drinks cooooool.

I might just have what you are looking for. They are plastic cup holders out of a boat. They can be glued or riveted in place and fit a coozie perfectly. They also have a recess to hold a can if you lost your coozie. Let me know if you are interested. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">

1. Check a boating supply place - they should have what you need as was said above.

2. Check the junk yards and find a vehicle you can rob some out of that are the multi-fit kind of drink holder.

I made a custom cubholder for my pickup console, I designed it to fit a 16 oz soda bottle, but it is also tall (deep) enough that a regular 12 oz can will drop in it and not wobble around and spill. The only drawback is that I can't use most coffee mugs that have handles on them.

I took a 4" PVC pipe coupler, sliced about an inch off it, then cut a segment out of it, with my bandsaw. Then made some "legs" out of 16 ga aluminum, and screwed it to the console. Works great, even on the trail at all angles (except upside down... <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> ).



I'm still looking for the ultimate commuter coffee mug. It must be plastic (microwavable), hold about 12 oz insulated, sippable, and WILL NOT SPILL A DROP if inverted. <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

Thanks for the ideas. I'll check out the marine store when I pick my boat up this week. The flat area of the half door is right at 4", so it needs to be equal to or less than that OD.
Primer is on, latches are done. Just need to final paint and carpet the tops and insides. I should have them done by this weekend.
