    I hadn't even realised aytheeee had updated that thread. Many thanks to him.

    How much did it cost you to get yours retrimmed? Mine could do with a tidy too...

    Ask him if he'll charge less for two and how much. If it's not a lot I'd be fairly interested.

    Your armrest was a steal tho! Well done!

    the hole you have to cut only has to be big enough to accommodate the baseplate. the plastic at the bottom of the armrest should cover up any potential mishaps so you've got a fair bit of room for manoeuvre

    failing that there are a lot of people who've done the job on here and i'm sure someone local would be willing to cut the hole for you if you're scared.
