I am starting now the restoration of my 1950 split, I was very lucky that I found another 1950 split body in a vw workshop for around 29 years, I am using this body on my chassis as the last body have no title
I found this arm rest with the body it looks original but without a hole in the D shape, also the previous owner drill the bottom part to attach it with the arm rest body, I need to know how this bottom part originally attached to the arm rest body?

West Coast does nice work, but their restorations are not necessarily 100% correct. As with any shop, ultimately it comes down to how correct the owner of the car wants it to be and how much money they have to spend.

Uh, sorry for the q:

Does this bottom of the armrest have upholstery or just the plain "plastic" material?
