Are you sure the labor is even worth it? Removing old leather, attaching new leather... might be cheaper to get a made-in-China Superklasse OEM-style knob.

I’ve never tried covering a shift knob.   However I did see a YouTube video once.   It looks fairly tricky.   But I love learning new things!

Not seeing any pictures. Potentially interested in a short armrest. Do you have a pic of what it looks like installed?

I’m still getting stuff transferred over from that “other” site.   Pics are coming....

“Im very interested.  How much in the same material as the arm rests you made me.  

BTW the first thing that people comment on when they get in my car is your leather work and after that its the tachometer.   “

Im sure I have matching material,  though I’ve forgotten what I made for you.   Price is $25 for vinyl,  or $35 using leather or “ultra” fabrics.

I will post a picture soon so you know the kind leather. Its the very smooth stuff that doesn't have grain.  What is your current wait time like.

Current wait times have degraded from "ridiculous" into "ludicrous".   I am trying to get things back on track.  On a bright note - I just had my seventh grandbaby yesterday!

You should probably rest and stay off your feet for a few days then...

Congrats!

Congratulations Paul. Im in no rush at all. Actually I asked just incase you are ready to take my order now as Im tied up this month with a new project.

Finally someone that is more popular than I for being in demand.  I will post a picture of the leather  and just add me to the list and let it takes its course.

Really great work! The short armrest looks out of place lol. You think you can make a long one but leave an opening for the cupholder?

I’ve never tried to stitch up a through-hole like that.  The pattern would be intricate.

That's some damn nice work. Sort of makes me wish I wasn't gutting most of my interior from my car.

I imagine it will be similar to a neckhole. I might try my hand at it.
