can my race leathers be repaired?

well my pants arnt bad at all just some smoothed out leather, no cuts or nothing.

jacket same thing pretty much but a few leather scores here and there, and then the elbow of course can this be repaired, and if so does anyone have a few #'s or links.

i am almost positive this can be fixed.

"The Leather Smith" near Rt. 59 and Roosevelt Rd. in West Chicago (630 231-3399). Great reputation. Give em a call and see what they can do for you. I don't think he is close to you, though.

EDIT

In the link to the thread, Anna mentioned them.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

+1 on spyderworks,
Alexa did some alterations on mine,
You're welcome to have a look if you want,
many of the racers go to her for repairs.
I drove there and back .. think its just past Milwaukee wi.

Alexa is on the southwest side of Milwaukee. Bit of a hike for you, but she does take shipments. If anybody in northern burbs can get them to me, I head up to Milwaukee at least once a month.

Those do look pretty bad though That hole is huge, can it be patched? May want to bring the pants in too, sometimes the seams get pulled and it's tough for us mere mortals to catch all that.

I'll probably be bringing mine into Spyder after the next race weekend. they need some serious TLC. Pants are really worn thin in the butt and knees are down to the padding. Guess it's time for a new set.

well called and talked to Alexa, and sent off the pic she is sure she can fix me up, and it will work just as good as the suit its self.

hopefully while i am up there get alittle custom lettering done to my SEASONED race suit.
