A very good  customer is having us do the trim on a 50's GM convertible. (He comes up with some off the wall ideas sometimes, and we accommodate them).
So, you know how the cars have a fold down center armrest in the middle of the front seat?
Well, this character wants a hidden glove box in it. And like a fool, I tell him "Oh, that WOULD be cool."
 So he shat upon my idea of building something custom, and comes in with a rear center armrest from a 05 BMW something or other, ad I'm supposed to make it work. At first I wanted to quit my job right there, but then I started thinking.  (always a dangerous situation).
Pics on Tuesday.

Back in the 80's, American Express was a client of mine and whenever they got a new Lincoln Town Car, they would bring in the armrests to have a compartment built into it to conceal their car phones (of course, this was before cell phones). I love that type of work, ship the armrest and some fabric to me, I'll do it.

Everything's getting so expensive these days, doesn't anything ever stay at the same price? Well the price for reupholstery hasn't changed much in years!

Looks real nice, you did a great job.

 I once had a guy, who I had never seen before and he really didn't fit in with the normal looking guys around here and had a funny accent, asked me to sew hidden compartments into the upholstery in his car.  I declined.

From the sound of your first post, I thought you were dreading the thought of doing it, but it looks like you've done a great job!
