I’ve not touched my car for 5 or 6 weeks as I’ve been busy on other projects around the home and garden, hopefully soon I’ll be back on it and push on to get it finished.

The only thing I have to report is that my drivers seat returned from the upholsterers, he had real problems matching the colour and we eventually agreed on one that is slightly darker but the same quality. He’s done a fabulous job of replacing the seat base and back faces. The headrest, sides and back are the original leather.

Back to garden projects for the time being. Stay safe everyone.

That looks so comfy!! Great work there by your upholsterer. You know you'll now have to dye the remainder to match :wink:

I’ve got the rest of the full hide to go at, there’s enough left to cover the passenger and rear seats but dyeing is much cheaper.
