Leather Dash

I had a dash crack in the usual spot.  I debated about finding an uncracked specimen but thought there is no guarantee a crack wouldn't appear in that one also sooner or later.  So I decided to have the dash, glovebox and console covered in leather.  I'm pleased with the result and like the stitched premium look.  And it smells amazing too!  I'm looking forward to breathing that in every time I get behind the wheel.

I did contract this out to a professional upholsterer. He also recovered my 911E dash.  He is semi-retired and works at his own shop.  I can ask him if he'd be interested and send you a PM.

Thanks for the comments.  The gentleman who did this is Don Thompson and he is located in Northern Ontario which makes getting pieces up and back a challenge.  The other thing to bear in mind is that he works from home in his own shop at his own pace.  that means you have to be patient as he gets to these projects when is able between fishing trips.  His work is excellent if you can wait.  If anyone wants his phone number, send me a PM and i will send it to you

Yours looks great, Dj.

 

As a reference point, mine came from here:

 

I wonder if Chris can be persuaded to facilitate if there's interest.

 

 

Cheers,
