Arm rest base
#1
runninpony 
All,

We all know that the default arm rest base, standard door panels, matched the door color. Many moons ago, I found a set of Ford LTD chrome arm rest base. The really looked good and added just a bit of class. They are a bit worn. So I researched the forum to see who had a recommended plastic re-chrome vendor.

I found the thread by [b]bkdunha[/b]   https://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-plas...tic+chrome 

Here is the LTD chrome base.

So, I emailed the vendor to see what was the most cost effective way to get the chrome plated bases. Here is their quote.

1971-73
Armrest 11 3/4 Front (Chrome Strip Required) Price each
$77.00
 
1970-71
Armrest 11 3/4 Front (New Plastic ) Price each
$45.00

It is $154.00 to do the old ones. The new parts plus re-chrome came out to be $120.00. The new ones are on the way in.

I got a 72 vert parts car and it had the chrome bases on it also. I had heard from a member that they were off the big Ford and not Mustang.
Good find on the new ones with chrome.

Hello David,

I did look for NOS bases. None to be found. So, I am going to send off the black ones to the chroming vendor.

Thanks,

mustang7173 Thankyouyellow

Ok Peeps,

I have received the new arm rest bases back from the folks at Vacuum Metalizing. Your Dash bezels, and console clock bezel maybe a good candidate to email them about.
