    I reupholstered my center console/armrest cover with black vinyl from the hobby store.

    I hope it holds up better than the horrible fabric that came stock!

    It's a little wonky on the underside of the corners, but I'm happy with it. It was only $12 for the material and the spray adhesive.

    I didn't spray the foam under the stock fabric, just the underside. I also didn't use the little staples that the factory did. Just went slow and held it down until it set. If you buy a foot of the bolt of vinyl you have enough to try three times

    Not really. I sort of winged it! You cut it slightly larger than the armrest, and then make slits so the vinyl can go around the ribs and stuff in the plastic under.

    Do the long sides first, and then practice the corners before you spray the adhesive on the ends.

    You have to pinch the vinyl together on the corners to eliminate wrinkles and then cut out the excess.

    I don't have any pictures of underneath sadly. I put silicone goop on each of the tabs to cut down on the creeking, so it'd be hard to get apart at this point.

    Italian tune-up. Ten minutes straight with my foot glued to the floor, not letting up once. Covered 20 miles at full power. Exhaust is clean!

    That came out pretty sweet. I was also considering this, but haven't gotten around to it yet

    The tire direction in backward. That tire should be on passenger side....
    You should check all the tires to make sure they are going in the correct direction. :)
