Anyone have ideas on how to fix cracked and broken arm rests? I feel I saw some where a guy who made aluminum plates to reinforce the arm rests. I was thinking of repairing the cracks with some 2 part epoxy or something similar.

So I ordered a reinforcement kit from a guy over at the Impala SS forum. That will help stregthen the arm rests and hopefully prevent future breaks.

I am thinking of either using fibergalss to patch the hole and then use JB Weld or getting some spare plastic and a soldering iron and plastic welding the cracks. The passenger side is a thin hair line crack, so JB Weld and some SEM should do. The drivers side has a large hole though, big enough for a nickel. That will require some plastic welding. I will post pics of my progress. Stay tuned.

On my driver's door panel, there was a crack starting that was visible going from the door handle cup to the switch plate. I mixed up JB Weld close to the color of the gray door panel and filled it in. Wasn't perfect but looks decent for now.

I will take a picture of the drivers door. Its been bad since I bought the car and its getting worse. I have even dabbled with the idea of getting a new door panel, but they seem to go for $200 for an SS one.
