    Here's a pic of my boot and armrest.

    I ordered it in alcantara leather with baseball stitching. I'm gonna get them to change the color of the thread to more closely match our stock threading but overall I like the quality and look.

    Hardest part of the install was trying to get the silver piece out of the reverse lockout.

    The door arm rests are being worked on.
    Just trying to come up with the best way to add stitching so it will look good.

    Love the baseball stitching!

    I have my armrest, just trying to figure out the best way to adhere it. The instructions on the site say to use glue or staples, but the process therein is not clear at all.

    After unscrewing the top of the OE arm rest.
    I would just use spray contact adhesive.
    Put the new leather over the OE cover as stated and wrap around the edges.
    Re install the cover with the 3 screws removed earlier.

    That's what I was thinking. I'll have to get some adhesive this week. Any suggestions?

    I like 3M #77

    3M #90 is better. #77 will remain tacky for ages. #90 will completely dry but remain pliable.

    That doesn't make it better, just dryer.

    I think the middle sample is the best match (the other two are too yellow/orange) but would like to see a better comparison like Dave said

    It is still difficult to tell because of the lighting.
    How does it look next to the thread currently in the seats?
    I am afraid you will have to decide as it is hard to see in the photos.

    Definitely not #3. It is too light. Or is that #1? Can't tell if you flipped it upside down or not.

    I am sure we can agree that #1 is too yellow.

    I have to say that they all still look too yellow.
    Look at the samples next to the OE stitching.
    need more red.
