    What do you guys recommend to cover cloth door arm rests with. Does katskins do that. Pics would be helpful. Want something easier to clean.

    You can get covers from Katzkins but they are vinyl. They do look good.
    If you want leather covers checkout www.redlinegoods.com.

    Those two tone redline ones look good. I'm not big on that red/grey but light and dark grey would look good. I can vouch for redline, I've got their center console cover and door pull covers.

    I did the katzkins on the seats and they came with some vinyl swatches for the door arm pads. It's not a super easy thing to do, but not real hard either. You need to take off the door panels, remove the little plastic melted mushroom head pins then remove that arm rest panel and recover then reattatch.

    The hardest thing about it is finding a glue that will stand up to vehicle temperature swings and then reattatching those panels without poking a screw out the surface or coming loose.

    The glue I used started letting go so I need to redo mine.
