LEATHERED COVERED INTERIORS

02 March 2010 - 06:31 AM

Seems like this thread got "Sorta" side-tracked last week Posted Image , but GOD says to forgive and forget, as HE'S done for us.

Won't post anything tutorial on this for a while as I think it takes time for dust and feelings to settle.

SOMETHING TO REMEMBER ABOUT ME.
When I post a topic, it's not because I think I'm the best builder out there, or the best at any given discipline.
Lots of builders on this forum are just as good or better than me, it's just not everyone shares how to do it, especially for the new builders, and I enjoy sharing.

The other thing is I'm pretty independant, and like functioning that way. I'm a research person and don't need anyone to tell me where to get something. Anyone who wants to do anything bad enough, will find what they need to do it, AND THEN I'LL SHOW YOU SOME WAYS TO ACCOMPLISH THAT.

That's how I do it, if you want something different, you'll have to check in with someone else on the subject.

Complaints will be ignored like the last time - I DON'T ANSWER COMPLAINTS Posted Image IT'S JUST PLASTIC AND A HOBBY.

One last thing.
Am I boastful or arrogant about my skills, or proud of my accomplishments????- ABSOLUTELY Posted Image .

For some reason in the modeling world, it has it seems, become a sin to "BOAST AND BE PROUD Posted Image Posted Image .

I THINK BECAUSE WE ARE MEN, AND WERE MADE ARROGANT TO A CERTAIN DEGREE, AND THAT WE SHOULD DISPLAY AND ENJOY THAT MASCULINE CHARACTER TRAIGHT PROUDLY :rolleyes: .

AM I ANGRY? - NOT AT ALL - NOTHING TO BE ANGRY ABOUT Posted Image .

LEATHER COVERED INTERIORS.

Like in painting or anything else, I think you should be able to have some sucess and experience at what your sharing, and be qualified to show others how to do something.

So I'll start out by showing some finished examples of my previous work.

Several of these have won awards at major shows in the past, in Calif., Oregon, Washington, and at the GSL in Utah, as well as being in many magazines, inluding a cover shot and a feature article.

In the next few days I'll discuss such things as the tools and supplies you'll need, the various leathers, where to get leather, how to apply it using some very easy basic steps, to get some experience and grow from.

The biggest challange for some will be the "PATIENCE" it takes to do this and make mistakes, and keep going 'till you get it right - THIS IS NOT PLUG N PLAY Posted Image - MISTAKES AND FAILURE ARE PART OF LEARNING Posted Image .

Here are some of the cars I've built with scratch-built leather interiors.

I've has several people ask me about doing a tutorial on doing leather covered seats, and door panels

Is there any interest in me doing that??
I would include where to look for materials, the process for adherring it properly, and design techniques and considerations.
