DIY leather interior bits

Just playing around with some leather and thought I'd document it.

Shifter boot...











More to come...

It may be a bit much, lol!
I'm thinking that I need a white console to pull this off...oh well. It only took about 45 minutes.

I plan to do a few more pieces(e-brake handle, some door pieces, etc.), so I'll wait to see how it looks with them before going back to black. My stock boot is fine, so it'll only take a few minutes to switch back.

Ahhhh...boredom

Certainly is quite the contrast... perhaps the entire interior in white would look good.... you better buy a few more cows

Yeah, I photoshopped my interior first to see if I'd like it...and I didn't.

Looks pretty much like it did in the photoshop, so I'm thinking this little project is a no-go. Nice to know that I can make my own shifter boot if the stock boot ever wears out, though.

I switched it back to the stock black boot already...

Nice work, but, yea, you would need some more white to pull it off, and then, where would you stop?

Not necessarily. Not everyone has the gumption to make a whole new shift boot. Now you know how to make shift boots,you could make them any color you wanted to match your taste. Shoot, I am sure you could sell a leopard print boot to JD!

Wow the contrast! I loved doing leather work for my old 924/944's. If I had proper sewing machine I would get back into it. Keep it going!
