My buddy and I were swapping cupholders between his EM1 and my 96 DX because he wanted to put his radio down there and I wanted the larger cupholder found in the 99-00 cars because it holds a 32 ounce gatorade perfectly and I drink them pretty often.

While we were at it we figured we would swap the part of the center console that goes over the ebrake as he has Recaro's and the armrest doesn't fit fell with them.

Because of the brackets on the rear for the screws to screw into are there the armrest delete panel from my car doesn't want to fit.

Without unbolting all of that stuff to swap that bracket off his car is there a way to make it fit?
