Center Console (Redneck Fix)

So I got tired of the broken armrest. So I grabbed a tent stake, torch and a vice and bent it to fit on the inner rim, and go in the center of the arm rest where you put pressure. Looks ugly, held together by tape and silicone lol. I ran out of my my "francy-dancy" epoxy. Pic explains lol (Please comment with a minimum one one Smilie.

(on a true note, dont talk to much trash, it works GREAT! and I can actually get into my cab and fully lean on it. )

Who cares as long as it works! I wish I had pics of the armrest I fixed in my mom's old Explorer. Used a u-bolt but at least it was usable again!
