Yes, having seen the leather it does seems that is the way to do it.
If I was building a track racer the bare metal would have to show.
The good part for me is that both my nieces are increadible seamstresses and can sew anything and I lived in Johnstown/ Gloversville NY.
That may not mean much to most people but Gloversville was the glove making capital of the world at one time, and both towns were full of tannerys.
I left with six full cow hides, upholstery grade, but they are all brown. Thank heavens for leather dye.
