If you bring a stout tab out from the inner door in a horizontal plane you can design the arm rest so 2 screws will go down into the tab through the bottom of the finger pulls of the arm rest. That way both the vertical weight of your arm as well as the force exerted by closing the door is transferred to the inner door, not the door panel and armrest. Hope this helps.
