Picked up the hides yesterday and soaked them overnight in a Borax solution. Now they are sitting out to dry, and tonight, they will get coated with salt to help the drying process.

I know. lol

It's really not all that strange when you think about it, however. I'm doing the basic process that leather goes through before it is manufactured into cars (at least the ones that have real leather). I have no idea how it will turn out but we will see.

I know. I don't care for the interior nearly as much as I should right now.

The floor carpets are really worn so no matter how well I clean them, they still look like crap. Between the north country winters and the dirt I track in don't do carpets any favors.

Yup, finally took the plunge. lol

However, if worst comes to worse and I can't stand not seeing out the back this winter, it only takes about 10 minutes to put the wiper back on. I really love a clean a$$ though.
