    Interior leather (fetish?)

    Last week I bought a deerskin hide from a leather place here in town. Black, of course, but I chose deerskin because it had a nice grain pattern and had a good 'hand' (their term, not mine).
    I am going to make a shift boot out of some of it but yesterday I covered the center arm rest with it. WOW! It turned out well. I'd post a pic but it wouldn't do it justice. I didn't remove the existing vinyl because the padding is attached to it and not the armrest lid.
    I used a spray adhesive by Elmer's that is made for porous material. 3M makes a nice spray adhesive too.
    I didn't stretch the leather because the deerskin is so soft that the grain pattern disappears when it is stretched.

    Now, I want to do the door armrests. Does anyone know if those come off seperately from the door panel?

    After the armrest perhaps I should cover the dash, and then the headliner, probably the trunk....

    Thanks

    Sounds like a nice mod, post pics!!. My stock armrest could use a nice leather cover on it.

    Well, I thought about pix but it wouldn't look much different from the stock armrest. I need a digital camera too...
