V Stitching and CTS console lid – Looks Awesome!!

I bought the CTS console from Lindsay for four reasons:

a) my CTS-V console/armrest was broken (internal metal brace was flopping around)
b) Everybody raved on how practical and comfortable it is
c) 5 minute install
d) Lindsay rocks

The CTS console it great, if you don’t have it, buy it now.

I had to take my V in for other warranty work, so I figured what-the-hell, I’ll put the broken V console lid back on and get it replaced for free. I can either sell it on Ebay or put it back on the car when I sell it. The console lid was replaced, the dealer charged GM $255 in warranty ($234 part & $21 in labor)!!!!

While I had the CTS console lid back out of the car, I realized why it did not look quite right in my car. The double white stitching was missing. So, I contacted a friend of a friend who has an interior trim shop. They cut and sewed new material with the double stitching on it. They also put an extra 1/8” padding under the top so my elbow doesn’t get so tired!

Don’t ask me what I paid, like I said, it was a friend of a friend deal. The shop would normally charge probably the same amount that I paid for just the console from Lindsay.

I think it looks pretty damn good. Whaddya think??:bouncy:

That DOES look pretty good!

In fact, that mismatched stitching is what was holding me up for so long in doing the CTS console (well, lack of bucks played a part as well :rolleyes:). It really isn't too bad, though. However, matching the stitching like you did looks great! :thumbsup:

looks good....but I like my lastss cover thingy's on the console....so I'm stuck with stock :(
Your Lastss hinge covers will work fine with a regular CTS armrest- the caps are the same.

(BTW, I know what you mean. I love my Lastss COMPLETE interior set. One of the few in existence, muhahaaaa! :D)
