Great work Tyrefryer.

I would also be potentially interested in a group buy

@Tyrefryer:

What part needed to be "modified"? I have read your posts on the German forum but I do not fully understand! (#237 etc here: http://www.fiesta-ka...8-post237.html)

Thanks/Danke :)

That was only a bagatelle: the small vertical plastic-cover at the back ;)

You also mentioned you needed to grind some pieces?

You get the armrest and two "cups".

One you glue into the original tray, the other is then attached with 5 screws. (The armrest is finally fixed with a big bolt)

And this second cup had some sharp edges, which I grinded.

Got my armrest two days ago. :D (Ebay ~60.-)It is only attached with 3 small adhesive tapes, so it can be removed without leaving any drill holes B) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImageAlso replaced those plastic dowels (which hold the central console) with something more stable (had to cut a thread first) ;) Posted ImagePosted Image




I NEEEED one of these in my life but cannot find it anywhere?! :(

Any help would be deeply apprectiated.. thanks

Works out at about 50 all in - which if it's reasonable quality doesn't sound too bad.

The 50 armrest seems reasonable and does the same job as the armster ones which are 80 to 100, which I am not spending on a armrest. So we are not organising a group by for this one

Armrest

Gazza, im interested in a group buy mate i prefer the 50 one over the armster due to the retaining the cup holder let me know how it goes, maybe we should start a new thread and ask for it to be stickied so everyone can see it, you could possibly email them and ask how many they have and how much they want for a X amount.
