Just haven't been happy with what's avail arm rest wise for our Element. Used some 1x10, 1x2, and 1x8 to fashion one that would hold my coffee cup and both my wife and my own arms! Right height too. Looks like it could really be added to if one has the right amount of inspiration.

I built it to set in the recesses in the little console already there as I have leased this Element and don't want to mess up the interior.

Used some carpet found at Walmart though I seriously considered using foam for padding and Naugahyde for a covering. But the vacation was coming up and I used what I had.

I also used the same type of carpet 'cut and fitted' for floor mats in the front. They don't slide around and didn't run a hundred bucks either :)

Pictures can be seen at:

Would love to see what some of you 'inspired' owners can come up with in the DYI area of arm rests. [/img]
