I expect just prep work to take me 2 full days, we will see how fast I work though.

i wonder how cinnamon would look in a sedan??
I think Alec is going to do it, someone already did it on their door panels with another product from leatherworld and it turned out amazing!

Tanin my friend, not Imola unfortunately. Let me finish my project first then I'll help you with yours.

Thanks to everyone for subscribing! I appreciate all of the comments very much. Stuff starts coming in next week so expect a few updates and then the fun starts Saturday the 18th. There will be periodic updates throughout the day and I'll post photos as I take them. I've never done a progress thread, normally I just do all at once DIYs so we'll see how this one goes

Regards,

Neil

Very insightful, I didnt think darker leathers could be dyed to a lighter shade.. and now Im thinking AW exterior with a two tone Cinnamon/Black interior could look awesome.. thanks neil1138, looking forward to seeing how this goes!
