Handbrake Gaiter – Part 1
After looking back through this thread, I realise that I started work on this back in March 2019.

But it took me until July to make even a small bit of further process when I test fitted the base panel.
( While I was fitting the alloy panels to the cockpit walls . )

After a bit of trimming and hammering I was left with this.

This panel will be scuffed before final fitment, as this looks way too shiny here.

It was then early September before I restarted the process and mocked up this.

I know this mock up material looks a mess, but I just needed a pattern to mark up the leather.

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

Then folded the top edge and added an extra layer of leather to hold a pair of zip ties in place.

I will be using black zip ties with fixing this to the car.
This was the ‘Take 2’ version of the second piece compared to some of the photo below.

Folded the top edge of the small connecting piece.

Then joined this to the main section on one side.

I then finished sewing the front section in (inside out).

Which now looked like this, when pulled the right way out.

End of Part 1…
