What about rear seat armrests?

Did a search, but didn't find anything. Has anyone thought about this? If there were two, similar to the standard front armrest, that recessed into each of the rear seats, they wouldn't impede anything. I mean if it is only for two passengers back there anyway, why not give them some armrests? What do you guys think? And for those of you on the board even older than I, guys now refers to either gender, so don't punish me for not being P.C.

Re: What about rear seat armrests?

Well, I didn't say I was going to do. If that was the case I would've put this under the DIY section. I am just not that handy, but I would think someone good at upholstery could tackle it. And, I am not talking about the seat cushion, more the back cushion. It would fold down to be used and then fold up into the back section of the rear seat. Most rear seat armrest work this way only it would be two armrest right next to each other, one for each seat.

I was thinking of creating a cushion [you can get this from Michael's] and cutting it in half. The cushions are made of the same material used in sofas when you want to firm it up a bit. If you get that wrapped in some sort of fabric [for me it would be black leather or black perforated suede] and just put it there as the arm rest. If you want to pick it up and remove it you can. As for mounting, I was thinking you could just attach a T-shaped piece to the back and have it slide through the middle crack to the cargo area. This way it does not move forward or backward and is removable when you need to fold the seats either way.
