Convertible Arm Rest
Convertible arm rest covers hide all the hydraulic top lifting cylinders and have been made in metal and plastic with a vinyl grain. Our covers are from a 50s Caddy and are steel covered with upholstery. As seen we have covered them with a pad on the top section first to allow a comfy arm rest base.
Metal covers usually have a lot of irregular shapes and are in need of heavy padding. We often need to have water proof 1/8th thick cardboard sewn to the back sides before installing. The pleats are traced with a straight edge and sewn right through the board for strength.
The ash tray was fitted with relief cuts sliced on the leather to allow a tight fit. Carpet was then glued down on the bottom as per the factory style. This cover is ready to go.
