Very nice item! 
Thanks Gabriel, the detailed pictures will help me to reassemble the arm rest I purchased  few week ago who came disassembled (the screws where missing too). I didn't invest a lot of time so far, but at the first view, I hadn't any clue how to put these parts together. Now I see it better... ^_^ Thanks again!

Is there any way the pictures from the eBay add could be reposted here on this forum so we can have them for posterity ?  I think the pictures disappear shortly after an item is sold on eBay ,,,,,, GREAT PICTURES  !!! 

Is the upholstery from Clarks on that armrest ??

thanks guys !!!!!

 I have some pictures from when I refurbished a rear center armrest from beginning to end. I can post them for you if you would like. The upholstery I used was from Clark's. Let me know and I can dig them out and post.

But remember, the base does not have the replicated vinyl coating on it.

I suppose the seller might benefit by restoring one of these to sell it at a premium, but it makes little sense for most buyers to pay that premium.  The new vinyl is nice and all that, but unless you need a black armrest, you end up paying twice for the same job.  You're far better off to find one that needs restored than to pay for a restoration you can't use.

I wouldn't call it a restoration. The prep and paint looks terrible and there's surface rust visible under the padded part.
