    Ever trimmed panels before?? Erm nope....

    I have never ever trimmed anything in my life before, until today that is

    Was handed a roll of sexy black alcantara (only Ł90 a sq/m) and the a-pillar trims from a Seat Leon and told to trim away.....

    Oh and the fact that it's going in to an ICE demo-car that's gonna debut at donny this weekend didn't put too much pressure on

    The finished jobbie, not bad for a first attempt


    Fitted in the Leon.....


    At least this one was nice and flat and fairly simple....

    It is down at LM, just been helping out a bit

    I made the mistake of popping in last wednesday morning for a chat, ended up staying all day rubbing down Lee's custom dash

    I been off work this week so I been down there giving a bit of a hand where I can, they've got 14ish cars going to donny this year so it's been quite a busy week
