Yes, except it won't exactly be "new" leather but leather in new places. I'm hoping to do most of the interior with leather including the dash, center console, and door panels. It's a lot of ideas and not a lot of action yet, but I'm planning on playing around with these pig hides and seeing what can come of them.

Coming along nicely. Would like to cover my doors, dash and lower inside bpiller panels in black leather. Just can't find any descent leather for a descent price.

Yes you are.

I'm hoping to be able to make my own leather which should cut way back on the cost. I've never done it before and have no idea how it will turn out but it's worth a shot.

Ditto but 80% of those new things tend to end in disaster.



The new O2 sensor is in. The old one came out without a problem and the new one went in easy. Took less than 10 minutes.

True. But not a complete disaster if you learn something.
Thinking like that makes me feel better about my epic fails. Lol

Wait long enough and you may be able to get both, but that probably wouldn't happen for a few year if at all.



I really wish I had my hides back right now. I've started work on the back compartments again and have so many ideas how to use the leathers. Waiting is the worst part of any project.
