Sunday - Part 2:
There then followed a prolonged period of trial and error, with the emphasis on error.

I looked at the option of cutting the cover and making a small extra section to cover the box…



Considered how to ensure the gaiter could be fitted over the thickest park of the handle...



Eventually, I ended up with something like this.



Which is mostly make from a single piece of material, with just a small insert in the front section.



In the end, I had to tape the mock up material in place on the inside of the alloy…



To ensure I was able to properly mark up the shape I will need to cut out of leather.



Note: I still need to tidy up the overlapping edges for both sewing and fixing into place.

By now it was 4pm and with the sun shining I headed out for a quick drive.

This may be my last day in shorts and a T-shirt as it was definitely chilly when the sun went behind a cloud.

Just stopped for one quick photo on the way home.



Until next time, take care, Paul.

PS
I will make an effort to catch up on my replies to other threads tomorrow.
