Covering plastic with leather

Does anyone know where I can buy a few yards of leather to recover some plastic parts?

I bought some small pieces on eBay. Others have bought leather jackets from secondhand stores and cut pieces from them.

Any chance you could get a door panel off eBay that would have the right leather for you to salvage? Maybe call a Porsche salvage yard to see if they have anything that might work?

I was looking there, but its likely impossible to find graphite gray. I may bay any old gray and dye it.

Try Joann Fabrics. They're nationwide and if they don't have it, they can probably get it.
