Handbrake Gaiter
Cut out the two sections of leather from what remains of my old sofa left overs.

Folded the two edges that will joined on the underside of the lever at the front.

Then folded the top edge, where I will be using a black zip tie when fitting to the car.

Put a second zip tie holder a bit lower down.

As I look at this photo, I realise this needs to be the full width to pull the cover over the lever properly.

So it looks like I will be re-doing that piece later on today.

Folded the top edge of the small connecting piece.

Then joined this to the main section on one side.

As always, it needs a bit of forward planning to make sure the joins are the right way around on the 'sunny' side.

With a bit of luck, I will be able to finish this today.

Because tomorrow, I will be atů.

Goodwood Revival 2019
In a last minute changes of plans I've just arranged up to volunteer at this.

I will have to do an unpaid six hour shift on each of the three days, although I'm not sure what I'm doing yet.

But at least I will get a chance to drive my car to Goodwood, which was always a dream while building it.

The weather forecast looks good, which is just as well, as I will be camping on site.

More news when I have it.

Until then, take care, Paul.
