Default Re: Tinsmith's saddle how to...

Understood. The first seat I rebuilt is on my Panther and the upholstery job is kind of rough. I was trying to cover it in the same way it had been covered at the factory instead of using my own instincts. Their material was much thinner than the Elk hide I was using so my attempt was on the boochy side. Works fine, but very obviously was done not quite right, so one of these days when I get around to it I'll do it again and try to make it nicer. That's the good thing about our builds... they're never really done and we always have opportunities to make them better.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
