I just read thru the entire post and you are doing excellent work ! Great job cutting out the door , I don't have the patience to do it that clean .
This should be a beauty when you are finished !

thanks Bob.

i use the back of a #11 blade to cut stuff open, it takes alot longer, but gives you a really nice sharp cut...it took me at least 90 minutes to cut that one door open, and another 30 to make the hinge.........but it worth it, a little patience pays off in the end.

cheers

Buddy, cut and done correctly, this material would make great cushions to bomber style seats. Or the seats you have are perfect too.
