So, I cut the pieces to size and then use a bit of contact cement to glue the leather onto the part... not on the frame itself but the part, including engine mounts. This works very well, protects the paintand no doubt helps a bit with vibration and noise.
Good one.......and yours has the added benefit of keeping your girl warm!
