i noticed a while ago that the early arm rest was leather,but they tend to wear a bit on the seems..the vinyl is a bit more hard wearing.

another thing that was deleted was the strap to pull down the rear centre arm rest.

Yes agree the Vinyl/Leatherette does stand up to wear & tear for longer, before looking worn & shiny!
I lean on mine while driving most of the time.
I think you will be hard pushed to find tidy looking leather rests in the scrappers.

i salvaged a leather arm rest,not in bad condition and once fitted i decided against it..looked shabby.

the vinyl version are a good comparison to leather really.

How interesting!

I recently discovered that my 20th of December 2002 registered Connie. was actually built on the 8th of January 2001. This fact had depressed me a little until I read about project drive, as it seems I've missed out on all the deletions I'd have had had the build been nearer to the registration date
