pull straps Vs arm rests

Has anyone found a decent replacement for the arm rests using straps from another car ?


I never use mine and will be in the way of my door bars.


help me out

How about the grab bars on a Deluxe interior door panel or the ones from over the glove box? IIRC the grab bars on the deluxe door are higher then the armrest. I'm sure you would need to use the standard door card because the deluxe will put an even longer arm rest in your way.

Re: pull straps Vs arm rests

I'd have to see in person and figure our what/how to mount I guess. Was looking for something to cover the stock holes and kind of lays flat when not using I think ?

Like this maybe ?

Something similar to your picture was available in late 70's early 80s Pontiacs. IIRC Lemans, Grand Prix were fixed and stuck out a little and the full size cars had one that was slotted and was almost flat. I think they would all be longer than the standard first gen Camaro arm rest.

Maybe I'll re-think the door bars ?

Maybe rethink a roll bar/cage etc in a street driven car. A little dangerous imho. Smack your head on it in a collision and its game over. Should really be wearing a helmet with a cage.

Has had a 4-point since before I bought it, now to be legal at the strip I need door bars.
Not much fun going to the strip only to get 1 pass and told to slow down or go home.


BUT, I do agree, hitting that pipe with my head hurts.

Re: pull straps Vs arm rests

This would be a repop door pull for deluxe interior if it is low profile enough for you

If its just a strap type function Doorman makes a generic pull strap

Will need to look at the Doorman part a little closer, seems they have options.


Thanks.
