Recent pullapart trip looking for Seats with built in armrest, but all either electric or too heavy.

Found this armrest, wife recovered and installed with 4 screws, 2 on each side of center hump as in picture.

Also found a cupholder for an empty double din slot, but dash breakdown was a little time consuming

What did the arm rest belong to? Cup holder looks factory! Nice

I like that the armrest doesn't cover the transmission hump.  My mechanic advised letting the hump "breathe" to help keep the hard working tranny cool.

Can't recall the vehicle I pulled it from, a Subaru or Kia maybe? Also pulled the lid from a 94 Celica which has the undersurface pull out cupholder times 2. It is wider and added 2 layers of foam padding on top and the wife is recovering it with same material as the seats. I will switch the lids when done. Why I will need 5 cupholders i don't know.

Also did the overhead map light switch from a 95 4runner, 2 instead of 1 light. Nice upgrade.

The previous owner left behind this little cooler.  It's 12V and fits a few beverages and snacks inside.  The cup holders are uselessly shallow and small, but I like that it's stable, movable, and at the right elbow height.

That looks like the much sought Sharper Image cooler

I like to leave the walk way open so let me look into 2002 thru 2006 Honda CRV foldable tray to see if it can be mounted directly on the transmission hump. If anyone owns a CRV model, please check. Thanks

Does anyone use a Black & Decker cooler as an armrest? Those are still sold and easy to get.

12-can/2.3-gallon

8-can/1.6-gallon

Finished product.

Wife also recovered the headrests and a pillow with leftover matching material from the back jackknife double couch/bed remodal that we did.

There is a double cupholder pullout under the lid. I also swapped the front fascia from s 94 4runner sr5 so I would have 2 cupholders in the dash instead of just 1 and that fake cupholder that was on the original fascia. Don't know why I need 6 but better than 1.IMG_20171015_155624029.thumb.jpg.7bcd5bd1859ba37561bb8c4ce5b39939.jpgIMG_20171015_162928160.thumb.jpg.8d39f28bb19e936817b9e102bce2f793.jpg
