Does anyone make a taller center console lid cover?

As the question states, I am finding that the center console lid is a little lower than I like, as I like to lean on it. But it's just an inch or two lower than I like. Or I just have short arms.

There are the leather ones from Australia. They are about an inch taller I believe. Seen them for sale on here a few times, but not sure where to tell you to go find one.

Another option is to just got to an upholstery shop and ask for them to do make something.

The console lids that I had up for sale are no longer available at that price. If any were to be imported, the price would be significantly higher than what I initially sold them for. If you're interested, I can look into it but a local upholstery shop might be a less expensive option.

I'm using the black with red stitching version. It's about an inch taller than the stock lid. It's very nice leather and 1,000,000% better than the stock lid. I think the black with red stitching version is the same one that comes on the 2016-2017 Chevy SS sedan.

I paid $200 about 1.5 years ago for mine from a guy on FB.

Thank you all.

For now, I may just roll up a towel or something until I spend for that. Not that I'm complaining about price. Just that for that amount, I have other things I'd rather purchase first.

Could maybe see if a local upholstery shop could do something for you. I gotta imagine it'd be less than $200, even with quality materials.
