The armrest and pedals look great.
You met him, so you know how big of a guy SO is. After hanging out here, you know how, um.... picky and what worry wart I am. Now, imagine the two of us doing my split armrest.
Me: "Honey, don't sit there you'll scratch it."
Him: "But sweetie, I have to sit here or I can't get enough leverage."
Me: Well, okay, but watch out where you point that screwdriver so you don't gouge the plastic."
Him: "Yes, I know, but if I don't push here the pin won't release."
Me (with hands over eyes but peeking): Okay, if you must, but please don't force it!"
Now you know why I have nominated him for sainthood.
 ps: If you're going to do the reflector delete, do it now when you have 95F ambient temperatures on your side. We did mine in February and it was also a hair raising experience.
