Default Adding an armrest to a stock drivers seat ?

I have a base model 2005 van , it did not come with an inside armrest ,

Anyway is there a simple way of doing this , maybe with parts from a junkyard seat ?
if so are the brackets or mounting holes on the stock seat frame ?

If you happen to have pictures that would be great

Thanks

Get the brackets from the junkyard seat and if the mounting holes aren't there, use a drill and make them yourself.

Forget that. Just change the seat. Four bolts.

I'm sure there are 2019 model year vans getting written off by insurance companies this year. The problem is shipping. Expensive. I bet if I go to ebay I will find a seat.

In craigslist, there is usually a van or two getting parted out where I live.

I did some seat swapping in the Camaro. Most years are interchangeable as long as they are GM. Only problem w/boneyard seats, they almost always NEED a good cleaning. Assuming you find one in good condition.
