    Arm Rest Bolsters

    When I'm driving any distance, I can never find the sweet spot to put my left arm, right side is fine the center console lid is there. The driver side armrest is too low for me and end up with my forearm along the upper edge of the door panel, ends up putting a crink in my shoulder and neck. So, finally went and ordered the elbow bolsters from Geno's Garage a couple months ago and finally when it warmed up the other day, installed one. Oh boy, finally have the comfort for the left side, no more cranky shoulder and neck. They are a gel pad, no hard spots, easy to install with velcro and super sticky fit 2 way adhesive. Should have done this a long time ago.

    Is that the standard or jumbo size?
    Edit: Nevermind I can see it's the standard size.

    Yes, I went with the standard 8 1/2" ones, didn't want to cover up too much of the grab recess.

    Every time I tried to glue things to my dash with sticky velcro adhesive, the heat got to it and there was both a failure and a mess.

    Wife found some "Sticky Pads" from Ecoss, Inc. 5128 Le Tournesu Cir. Tampa 33610. She got maybe four of them about the size of your open hand, fingers and all. You can cut smaller and to size. Placed my Garmin dash pad on one maybe a year ago. PURRFECT! They can also be re-used. To this day If I touch an exposed part of that pad on the dash and in the horrible heat that does turn off electronics, it is real sticky without losing a thing or drying out.

    If your velcro glue-job falters, check for these. I see now they are called "Anti-Slip Mats and come in a five-pack.

    So far after 5 weeks the armrest is still in the same spot, knock wood, it will stay there.

    I've had the same bolsters on my truck for the last two years, holding up well and haven't moved yet in either the Tennessee heat or Connecticut cold.
