    Just saw some threads on this....crazy! i have to do it! My only question: what are you guys using for a "pray adhesive"?

    Also, is it hard to strech the leather so there are no wrinkles?

    Looks good!

    In response to the original post, I think 3M 77 or 90 should work just fine. A nice contact cement would work as well but might be harder to find in a spray form.

    Please read this before attempting to replace your fabric arm rests. The original poster states to use a 3/8 drill bit to drill out the tabs. I tried this and ruined three tabs. The problem is by the time you reach the point of where the tab will break loose its too late. The rpm of the drill bit breaks through and catches the back side of the plastic stem you need to re-install the sheet metal screws. I tried every speed I could to not have this happen and it didnt matter. I finally realized I had a dremmel tool and used that to carve out the tab enought to take my fingers and break it loose leaving the plastic stem intact. Another post says to use a utility knife, I tried that also and unless you have gorilla fingers good luck. Maybe i just have some brittle plastic tabs but anyhow the dremmel worked great.
