Goofing around on the oval and trying to make some arm rests based on the original looking ones.
I started with this but got caught up with the carpets and door panels. My father took over the job.

One done, three more to go.

It ended up looking a bit puffy and bulky. Going to try and take some of the sponge out and try again.

Nice job D

My arm rests only had foam on top, not on the sides, if that helps.
