Interior Modernization Project, Part 1. Finding the Craftsman

After rejecting pre-made leather covers, I thought that maybe I could do the work myself. Order a bunch of leather, and then use some kind of glue. After all, we humans have been working with leather for thousands of years, surely it can't be that hard for a modern man like me??

So I did some more research on aftermarket leather applications to cars and eventually finding several videos on youTube.  And that is when I found a guy whose youTube handle was cechaflo, and his channel showed lots of different types and techniques of leather application. More importantly, he had a few dedicated to leather in cars, and after viewing them, I realized that there was no way I could do this job myself. I don't have the time, nor the space, and certainly not the years of experience it would take to do a neat clean job.

After watching more of his videos, I decided to try my luck and ask Cechaflo if he could help me...  few days went by and he came back with a "I would be honored." And with that, the project began.
