CUSTOM ARMREST

bought an oem zl1 armrest off a guy on here and decided to customize it


ordered some alcantara from relicate leathers and had it wrapped and added some 1/4" foam to it to make it a bit comfier on your elbow then had them match the oem stitching pattern what do you guys think?



i have a 1ss but have most of the oem zl1 parts steering wheel/shift knob/knee pads and dash pad so this should match perfectly!



going to install it this weekend and if anybody else one wants one pm me may make some more !

Does look great! Add some custom stitching and I think you'll be on to something! I'd def be interested in that!

What's the overall cost? Can they color match the Kalahari stitching?

Thread to be blue and maybe 1LE SS stitched in. I think there are arm rests with SS, but they are not the alcantara that you show there.

I believe you bought the stock armrest from me. Wow, that looks amazing! That's how the ZL1 should have come with that armrest! Nice Job!
