    Aftermarket Leather Binnacle Wrap

    Has anyone seen these "in person" to see how the quality is?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/GREY-LEATHER...3D231973941937

    Looks like a company in the UK, but they seem to have leather covers for the binnacle, console, sun visors, Door B Pillar trim, door interior panels, knee pads and dash boards. It's just the new leather covers, not the whole item. I'm definitely interested in something like this. Could be a neat way to "two-tone" your interior with covers that actually fit.

    Binnacle cover

    Just received one before Springfield(didn`t drive my D) and I put it on without taking off the Binnacle.Came out real nice,but,I think it would have been easier and even a better look if I had. Of course I still can do that. So to answer the question I think it is a good quality item,medium hard to put on.6864.

    I would really like to see one of these installed. The add on eBay looks black almost. Has anyone received the one that is light grey? Definitely interested..... Although I imagine DMCH will start reproducing binnacles here pretty soon anyways.... Time will tell...
    You can't buy happiness, but you can buy a DeLorean and that's sort of the same thing....

    No not ebay, a coworker of mine has a custom upholstery shop at his house and I gutted my car and he redid everything to my specifications. Wanted something different

    It looks like the DMC California repros that Danny sells for $375. Personally, I like the look of the stitching.

    Oh i know but i got it alot cheaper by my coworker. The seat COVERS are DMC-H but he added 2 stage seat heaters, the dash and headliner is DMC-H also. Everything else he did and frenched in the lighted DMC badge on knee pad and made custom mesh covers over the rear speaker panels. He made new pull straps and a bunch of other little things. The stitching is idea i had for years to do to the car from seeing new cars done that way. Just wanted to be different
    This is a night shot.
