I am still with Vic on old sofa leather for a seat, although appreciate it's not easy to stitch together and you know what you are doing anyway.
Personally I wish I had found a right type of aged sofa at the time, I used new soft leather with lots of texture, but it's my least favourite part of the car. Can't wait for it to age!

Just my 5p.

Kind regards
Vitaliy

As I've grown to expect from you Vitaliy, gorgeous, simply gorgeous. Nothing wrong
with having something that looks showroom fresh. That's the way I like my old trucks
to look. Not a big fan of "patina".
Who did the stitching on that upholstery??? Must have been professionally done, right?

How did you roll the wire edge in the cockpit opening? I've seen Lazze do it with a set of
dies for his bead roller. Can't imagine any way to do it with out one.

Hi Denny

Cyclekart diet presumes good sleep, what are you doing online at 4am!!!

I am glad you like it because without exaggeration I barely tolerate it, only because leather stitching is the only things I had to pay somebody else to do for me and I have no money to redo it, believe me I would.

Now that you said it I will try to see it in a new light...

Kind regards Vitaliy

Down at 8:00, up at 3:00, walk the mutt, put the coffee on, get the wood burner
fired up in the barn, take a few metal working lessons on the net from Lazze,
get some ideas for a few more roller dies, finalize my drawing for the Radius
attachment. Five hours is good till noon, then short nap, good till 8:00 and
the whole thing starts over again......I hope.

Leather stitching is one of the talents that I've long wanted to squire. But.....
it is one of those that seems to always be just out of reach, like playing
the guitar has always been. I've bought a few old used machines over
the years but never could bring myself to spending big money on a
"real" leather stitcher.
