Do you think she will make me some? I have done the same as yourself - removed all the old cracked and ripped seat covers and now need to try and get some more made - but I don't know anyone with a heavy duty machine

Hi Steve. Lets see how the covers turn out, and also how long it takes first. I'll post pictures when they're done.

filling polishing the jockey

that was very satisfying . rubbing down with 500, 800, 1000, then buffing . Not a bad job if I say so myself!

I had a used 3m headlight restoring kit (7.5mm drill disc, Velcro 500,800,1000 wet and dry disc, and buffer.

took me about 1.5 hours starting with the 500 grit working up to the buffer.
