    Gonna have to try that when I get around to cover a couple seats. About how long would you suggest leaving it in the hot water? And do you glue it before you put the wet leather on or after it dries?

    Decided to use the low rider Springer with the twisted pieces so the reason for the name change. Scuffed up all the parts with some 35 grit and primed with some self etching primer and hanging everywhere in my shop. Need to order some new spokes for the front rim and a couple other things. Hope...
