What do you plan to create?
Thanks man. This guy on youtube has lots of great videos

I got a Singer Fashionmate on ebay for $100.. just a standard home one. It said it could do jeans, so it handles the faux-leather just fine.

One of the best sites is www.yourautotrim.com.. click "Faux Leather" Vinyls

They're also one of the only places that carry the best glue, Dap Weldwood HHR. Most others will fail in the summer heat.

Within the month I plan to do the dash pieces, knee panels, speaker panels, gauge cluster hood, and three vent trims. I'll post pics as they happen

After our track day, we ran through AFH to LA. It was glorious.

I used a precision knife to cut it perfectly and i guess i fcked up and thats what happened in the first pic, i was gonna fix it but i only had enough vinyl to do one more and i used it to wrap my other mirror.

Finished joining the dash pieces.. then did a trial run on sewing the dash piece tonight.

The actual sewing is a PITA. No wonder JPM makes the big bucks. I probably sat and planned my attack for a good 2 hours







Just taped it on to see. It would lay flat with glue.


My problem is the corners. Need a lot more practice.. Feed is terrible too, making my stitches too short. Not bad for a first attempt!

Next attempt this weekend.

Made a video with the mic mounted on the bumper. Pretty great sound from a $2 generic mic!

The time consuming part for me was figuring out exactly where I was going to mount the post. Once I figured that out and used the post to create a "mark" on the bumper cover by pressing in on that spot, the rest was easy. The 2nd side took me about 20 minutes. I'll do a DIY since I have more pics and measurements.

Got another glowing UOA report back from Blackstone-- ran my oil for ~7000mi this time and they said everything looks excellent and to try ~9k next time. Also I got some fancy brushed aluminum boxes for storing my maintenance records (full-sized box, kept indoors) and short-term upkeep notes / vehicle documentation (a lil' tin that fits handily in the glove-locker):







You can

them them
