    Default A couple of small mods

    My front armrest was looking pretty tired and was a bit shiny on the front edge as well as having a few bobbles.
    I found a leather armrest cover on ebay and while i was at it i got a leather gear gaiter as well, Both ordered with silver stitching to complement the bits of silver trim already in the car. (you can get what ever colour stitching you want)
    Im pretty pleased with the outcome as i was a bit worried about the armrest looking out of place as i have a cloth interior but it turned out better than i imagined and looks factory which is what i was after.
    Oh and it only cost £15 for the gaiter and the armrest cover.

    Thanks mate. The pictures don't do it justice to be honest, The interior looks greyer than it is because of the flash.

    Those look really nice, I always pulled away from buying the leather bits thinking they wouldn't match and would look out of place but that may have just changed my mind

    I got the gaiter from the same guy. The armrest is not for the faint hearted as it involves cutting and glue. But actually was not as bad as i thought it would be.
    Took me half an hour to do each of them.
