The armrest MUST be very secure as it will be used to close the door. Attaching the armrest to just the panel won't work, must be firmly attached to the door inner tin. I would say two small areas hollowed out under the armrest (that won't show) is necessary. Attach two 1/4" x 20 bolts to the inner door tin that line up with the holes in the armrest. Once the panel is installed slip the armrest over the protruding bolts and secure with nuts. This will add rigidity to the door panel and be able to take firm pulls to close the door.
