Dupe...you really need to purchase a new camera because the pic you took did the armrest absolutely ZERO justice!
You all know that Dupleman has become my lifetime buddy throughout this journey, although, that does not give him any leeway for mistakes. My car has become strictly used for show which leaves no room for error. With that being said, I am SOOOooo impressed by the work he recently completed on my armrest. For those who don't know, here's the history:

Functionality: When I drive you'll usually find me leaning on the arm rest. As previously stated, suede is delicate so the leather being in place will hold up for ages. Also, the front being leather will allow for opening and closing of the arm rest without concern of damage.
This thing is amazing! It's so complex but looks as though is was fairly simple. I'm sure people will mistake this as OEM since it flows so well. Without further adieu, here are some VERY detailed pics:
I want you, the community, to know that The Dupleman and I are doing this not only for my Tib but also in support of those seeking show quality and enhanced looks. This isn't just for me...but rather a gift and option to everyone! Thanks Dupe!
