DIY Arm Rest Inserts KIT

I'm putting together everything needed besides the glue (3m90 available at any home store) for everyone to re-wrap their own door arm rests on the Double Cab. Included would be

4 - Vinyl covers cut to size (leather is an option but more expensive)
4 - Padding that goes between arm rest and vinyl
50 - screws and washers to re-attach insert to door

I could also offer access cab and 2 door versions. I just don't have the pattern for whatever the access cabs back door arm rests are.

I guess I'm trying to gather what someone would reasonably pay for this and if there is enough interest for me to do this.

Prices I'm thinking of are 30, 40, 50 , 60 shipped

It's possible that the 3M adhesive is classified as a hazardous material if shipped by air. Something to consider anyway.

I'd be interested in perf black since my CST kit didn't come with armrest inserts.

You know, for how long this mod has been discussed, I'm surprised somebody hasn't already done this. Voted!

30-40 will be the price. I need to do the numbers and calculate out the cost of everything. As of now I will be offering these kits I just need to go stock up. For now until someone requests otherwise I will work on a gray perforated and black perforated kit. If I can't find a black vinyl that matches a little better I'm going to look into actual leather in which case the price will be 40-50 more thank likely.

That's the plan unless someone beats me to it

Andy

OP - Just a thought.. There are a lot of folks on TW who have We Okole seat covers and center console covers.. Any thought on using that material to match the covers? or possibly a little denser foam to give the armrest some better cushion with leather or vinyl?

I don't think neoprene would be as easy to wrap as vinyl, I could be wrong though. Neoprene would allow me to get realtree ap if it was do able.

Edit: I stand corrected, I just purchased some neoprene from wet okole in realtree ap and will be doing this mod.

I'd be down for black neoprene to match the WO seat/console covers................would need set for RC. They are longer than the AC or DC fronts.

I think I saw on here somewhere where someone contacted WO and got neoprene from them. Might be an option for ya but I'm sure it will be a lot more expensive than OP and you'll have to get the rest of the stuff.
