vinyl, but very soft , almost like microfiber/suede. Much better for this application than the marine vinyl I had on before.

Outstanding work.

Is this just a one off or is he interested in doing a couple of mine? :-)

And is he recovering your pod as well?

He is also recovering the pod. I have already spoken to him about possible other owners wanting this type of work done. I'm pretty sure he will do others if asked.

Using the original leather on center console and door cards, I'm hoping to match/ contrast the dash with a dye.

Did you find that this was more cost effective than using Budd?

This fellow is a neighbor. I don't know what Budd's prices are for this kind of work.

Looks great, and no seams. Please fill us in on the material you are using, and the technique used to get it around the contours without apparent stretch marks.

I'm in west Africa now until the 22nd. When I get home I'll post some more pictures. The supplier that redid my dash will do the work on dash and pod for $800.00. I'll provide an email when I'm back home.
