Covered arm rest...need opinions!

Post by supertrick_05 » Fri May 09, 2008 8:10 pm

I just recovered my arm rest in the same silver carbon vinyl that are on the inserts of my seats. I'm trying to decide if it looks good or if it's too much. I'd like some feedback from you guys/gals. Thanks for lookin!

It's official...my wife and I both think you should do it! It keeps the two tone theme going nicely with the dark quartz on the bottom and the silver on top :rockon:
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

I guess I'll be the first to say that I think it's a little too much. I think it would look better covered in the dark leather that your using on the steering wheel.

Your car is a prime example of both the "less is more" and "subtlety is key" theories, and I just think that the silver on the armrest is pretty loud compared to the darker leather. It works on the seats, but I think it's just too much with the armrest in silver as well.

I think do it in black. And do it kinda like the stock leather ones are done. IIRC, they have a top and two side panels, stiched togather. Do the stiching with silver thread like the seats.

Yes, there are vinyl protectants. This vinyl is some nice stuff, and will clean up easily. If not, I'll just go to a junk yard, rip out a stock one and replace it. Easy as cake!
