    Well the arm rest mod is complete. I was able to leave the stock fabric behind the leather to add some cushion. Sorry if the pic is bad, I had to take it with my phone. The wife has the camera with her in Reno.

    I can do a write up but I did not have my camera so I was not able to take any pics. Look in the mods section and you will see the mod where I got the idea. What I did was cut the melt points not drill them, use the #10 X1/2 screws with 2 washers per when you put them back in and remove the old cloth to use as a pattern for your leather but leave it under the leather for padding when you reinstall. I got my leather from a store on ebay called dangerous threads. Only cost about $20 shipped. Let me know if you have more questions.

    I can always get a mod or two (be it on the house or truck) done when the wife goes away.

    I wish I could send her to Reno. That would give me at least a week to get stuff done!

    Nice work on the leather.

    See build thread in signature
    What adhesive did you use? Did you use the same adhesive for the leather to fabric as fabric to plastic?

    Looks good!
