Do it a few more times and we may have to do mine.


Looks great, bro. Keep at it.

I kept the original and I plan on making a leather cover once I’m finished with the other parts of this build.

I like leather and just recently put a pair of buckets in the front from a Subaru. Spent some time in an MG when younger and the seat molds to your ass shape (over time) just like a baseball glove. It's resilient, easy to clean and wears well. Most of all it's 'organic' and recycling a left over by-product from the production of steaks, which taste really good. Secondary... it's a 'bite me' to animal rights activists and vegans.

The canvas, batting, and jute I used are el naturale. The foam isn’t... but I couldn’t find any that was. To offset that I’ll see if I can import some chromium tanned leather.

And some mercury set felt... just for effect.

Thanks buddy!

That site is a gold mine. I could recreate the stock vinyl cover basket weave style in brown for a few hundred dollars.

Or I could do a green croc skin... either way I’m leaving the canvas base I have on there now. This build could be fucking crazy.
