Suede, Leather and
The best part about this
project is that it didn't cost me anything but $5.00 for
the piano hinge. The wood was already laying around my
shop while the foam and leather were left over
re-doing my interior.
The whole outside was covered in
1/8" closed cell foam to give it a little softness. This was
just glued on with the same contact cement I used on my interior
panels. You cover both pieces with cement and wait a minute or
two for it to dry to a sticky (not wet) feel. Then you line
everything up and press it together.
My next dilemma was what to line
the inside with. I thought about using felt or vinyl or cork
or........ well I decided to "Pimp My Ride" by gluing my leather
in with the suede side out. My wife wrinkled up her nose when I
suggested it but ended up liking it in once she saw the end
The foam's in place and
the inside is lined so it's
time to sew some more leather..........
