Best place to buy armrests

Thinking about getting some passenger armrests.
The only ones I can find would come from USA.
Anyone know a supplier in Australia?

G'day Brian,
I don't know of any suppliers here in Oz for armrests for the LT, but I did meet a bloke up at the sunshine coast who had made and really nice set of arm rests as well as a backrest for his LT.

I remember at the time he said they'd cost him around $180 to make both the armrests and the backrest. So maybe if your handy with a welder, and can do a bit of fabricating, it might pay to fabricate your own set and have them chrome plated like the fellow I ran into did.

If you can get a good photo of the style of armrest you want, your halfway there to making your own design.

Cheers

Barry

I got my set from the states, Bruce got his from the same supplier. They had a problem with the bolts that they were using but have now resolved that issue. Supply was very prompt and very easy to install.
