Cheers man. 

Yeah, after not being in the civic for so long, and driving the accord, the rediculousnes of the armrest was really noticeable. Got one coming from the bay of E so I'll see how it goes.

Wheels on     I can change the front and back by jacking up the front   all on...      

Little pic from today... Crap quality though      

it all just adds weight to the re spray argument.

Done! Can actually use it as an armrest while driving!

Moved the hinge forward about 30mm on the armrest to move it back a bit so it wasn't interfering with the handbrake as much.  Also, to hide the hinge when looking from behind. 

 

Ended up using some bigger spacers than the ones on this pic, and used these ones to help support where the hinge sits on the centre console.

This meant that the tray under the rest stuck out...

So chopped out the same amount as I moved the hinge forward.

Then glued it together and strengthened it with some wooden bead.

Could do with finishing it to hide the joint

I'm going to add the catch and the little rubber feet off the old armrest so that it sits in place nicer, but for now I've just popped some draft excluder tape on to support the front a bit more. 

 

Have to slide the rest back to be able to use the handbrake, but I don't think that will be a problem.

Lined it with some felt from when I lined the glove box about 10 years ago

Been out and about quite a lot today, and have to say that it's great! It's usable, and didn't notice any awkwardness using the handbrake. 

Nice cheap mod.

Feel like I'm getting there slowly but surely. Seat swap today, and feels like a big step. Love the difference these seats make - hold you in so much better, and even seems to make the ride less harsh / bouncy.

hi there nice seats, i also have that metal door sills i found incredibly lucky in Portugal, although the driver side one was a bit busted but all inall are acceptable and man they look nice.

Good ingenuity adapting the armrest, that is a proper armrest not just a storage space like the oem one, neat. is this from any accord of wich years?

cheers

Nice one. The armrest is from the 03-07 accord. 

 

Out of interest, here's some pics of the accord one in an accord.

The accord console is a much chunkier piece of kit.
