Hey, not to be obtuse, but why pay an upholstery shop to glue on some leather/suede/whatever? Go to the hobby store, buy a small piece of leather and a glue stick, and in ten minutes you're done. Do you guys not have girlfriends to tell you about this kind of thing?[/QUOTE]
It is more than just glue and some leather, It was time-consuming to find the correct grain and finish of leather to match the Evora's. There is also some thin foam padding under the leather as well. And lastly, you con't just wrap the leather over the edge of the plastic handle. Because it would be to thick. It has to be skived (thinned down).
