Anyone ever had their leather dash patched up?[



My car was broken into a few weeks ago and the dash got torn up a bit in the process. Insurance gave me a check to get the dash replaced but my local shop says he is having problems getting the part.

From the pic above, there really are a few scratches and two small tears. Everything else is still mint. Would patching be a good idea?

A place that does leather interiors should be able to make that look good as new. There was a place on Ogden and Ridgeland that used to specialize in custom interior, I don't know if they are still there.

Not my cup of tea. State Farm sent me all new Alpine MP3 HU and MP3 6 disc CD changer. I may just sell the stuff, not sure I want that stuff in my car anymore.

My shoulder is fine thanks for asking Larry. I only feel a little pain when my elbow is raised above my shoulder or when I put a lot of weight on it. My right shoulder is probably at about 80% right now so I hope to be back to 100% within a week or two.

Bike runs like a champ, although it is rashed up on the right side but not too bad. The FedEx guy should be dropping off an entire F4i front end (upper cowl, headlights, both signals and wind screen) today. Once I get that, I will have enough to get my bike back to running shape again, with some custom rash of course.

Are you sure that's leather? Looks like vinyl. If it's vinyl, it can be repaired easily and look like nothing ever happened. I've done my own vinyl dash repairs before and they were pretty darn good, so an experienced shop should really make it look perfect.

Come to think of it, I'm not 100% sure it is genuine leather. It might be vinyl. I just assumed it is leather because my car came with the leather package. Hmm, I'll look into it. Thanks.
