Welcome to the board.

As for your question...

I'm not sure I understand 100% what your asking?

There have been many posts suggesting that the drivers side armrest needs some padding, perhaps our new friend is suggesting that something similar also be done with the centre console armrest using leather to cover whatever padding is used.

Welcome ABF to Caliber Forums!!! The LX platform suffers the same problem with it's hard centre console. James at 22Elite, a supporting vendor at www.300cforums, has done tons of these padded consoles for the 300, Charger & Magnum and is highly regarded for his quality workmanship.

No guarantees, but it might be worth a shot to ask him if he'd consider this for the Caliber as well. You can either fill in the "Contact Us" information HERE, or send an e-mail to Erica at [email protected]. Please let us know what they say.

Thanks everybody for your answers! excuse me if I don't explain very well my question, I'm from Canary Island and english is not my native language.
Really I want to upholster the centre arm of my car (only the cover of the centre console), I did the same work with my steering wheel and it was very well.
tTe centre arm (centre console) has a problem, it slides ahead and back and to upholster it with skin, can stop this movement… (this say me the upholsterer that made my steering wheel a few weeks ago).
I'm sure that if you make carefully this work, you can upholster the centre console… only the cover, this is the thing that I wish to upholster with leather.
Thanks again… Mr. Medic, I will contact with the person you indicate me.

in my mind the fact that its MY car is the exact reason why to make it the way i like it. When you buy a car its seldom exactly down to the last detail what you would invision as the perfect vehicle. You can get pretty damn close though :) but there are always improvements to be made. To some a car is a tool to get to point A to point B, but for me its actually part of my hobby.

This is the answer of 22elite:

"If it is possible we can do it, let me run by a Dodge dealer and see if they will let me check one out. Or if you know of any forum members in Dallas, TX they could stop by for us to check it out. Let me know"

When I have more news, I'll tell you them, and those who are interested in this mod.

Thanks everybody ang good evening.

Sounding like good news ABF! James also does custom work too. Here's a recent pic he did for a Super Bee SRT8 console cover. Notice the colour match is perfect.

I think the only problem (at least for srt4's) Is my center has a flip up for an ipod or cell phone. Don't know if it can be worked around.

But I like the idea, I want my doors done as they scratch or blemish very easily and impossible to remove

Simple solution,
Make a tightfit fiberglass cover/hat
Upholster with the material of choice
Slip it over or double stick tape it to the console.
I won't bother with mines but a project like this should go really fast.

hey! i use it (for an expired parking pass that i keep forgetting to bring inside with me) :rolleyes:
X2...I can't stand those stupid bluetooth earbuds and everyone hates my car plug in bluetooth set (echos on their end) So I just throw my cell in that little holder turn on speaker and auto answer after 2 rings and talk as I drive/shift.

Very handy (to me) since everyone seems to call only when I'm driving
