    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.

    Did you reset trip A or B before the drive for measurement?

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