I can't find them on the site anymore, anyone know where I can find these?

They insert in the spot on the door handle pull where the two screws go, to hold that piece down and keep the screws from pulling through.

I think I know what your talking about and you can find them on ImpalaPerformance.com Home of the RAISS.

Do you mean the inserts that go in the armrests? You could probably make those. If people used the actual door pulls they wouldn't need those little inserts that really don't do anything anyways.

Well Heres my idea, If Chevy would have made different armrest for the cars without pulls without a cutout, they wouldn't break.

Mine did not work that well and cut into the arm rest on the sides, those things dont fit perfectly in there.

Somebody needs to make something to fill up that hole entirely so people wont put a hand in there.

(Thinking)

I’m thinking you just fill that area up with thumbtacks, that’ll keep people from putting their grubby fingers in there. Or Toadhaul just needs to make us a piece that works out of billet.

I made some out of a corner brace that you can buy at Lowe's for less than $2. The holes match up so all you have to do is cut it into two pieces, round the corners, sand them down and rattlecan them black. I'll take a picture this weekend when my oldest son is home from college of them in his car. His friends/brother broke two different armrests before and so far none since. Definately not worth $40 bucks.

They actually make these and sell them, lol. I made my own years ago using clear plastic that fits the entire area with no shtty gaps. It works and since its clear you hardly notice it. Im toying with the idea of doing some sort of etching in the clear plastic.

Not worth 35.95 IMHO, but here's where you find them.

Here is a picture of the ones that I made:



I bought one of these that had the correct bolt pattern at Lowe's, cut it into two pieces, rounded the corners, sanded it down and painted it black. Total investment approx $2 and 2 hours(Paint had to dry and it was humid out).
