    Question Putting Some Leather On My Seats

    Ok, I have been thinking about this for a while, and i have done a quick search for any previous posts about this. It didn't come back with any results for what i want.

    Basically i am not really looking for buying a full set of seats, i want to re-cloth my original seats with some leather. so if anyone out there, anyone atall, knows any good places to get this done or if they know anyone who can get hold of the material so i can get my sowing machine out and have a play! I would be Greatful!

    I will also be so kind to do step-by-step if im doing some DIY, also would appreciate any ideas of what colour leather to go for, (I don't want any stupid ideas like Pink or Purple or any other colour that you wouldn't have on your seats!)

    Thanks in Advance guys, im thinking a possible black/cream combo! or Black/White combo

    i suppose i could try sheepskin!

    P.S. Please give me a slap if you think i am doing the wrong thing.

    I just got a quote for cream and black stiching with embroidered logos at 1400pounds from d-class that would do the seats and doorcards pretty pricey though.
