Here is a quick way to add real leather accents to your racing seats. There is nothing like having the feel and smell of real leather in your vintage and classic car. After looking endlessly for replacements seats with the right look and feel, I went to TechShop San Francisco and made my own

Step 1: Make a pattern

Get some cheap material and simply rough cut a big square of it. Drape it over the part of the seat you wish to cover, and mark where the wrinkles are so you can cut corner reliefs and the like. Be sure to leave enough material for tabs and to wrap around center cushions. The side tabs should be long enough nearly join each other on the underside and back side

This is truly awesome, I have always wanted to do this. Thanks!
wow amazing i love how it looks
