Thinking about doing the simple bench seat myself in the Bantam to match the door panels, 1.5 sewn vinyl pleats leftover from a past iteration that don't look too bad. I have a machine and some experience. Ebay has pleated vinyl but it's heat seamed, not sewn. Good, bad? Then I got to thinking leather would smell good. On Craigslist there are 100 black leather couches for sale for under 50 bucks, probably some free ones. Would that leather work? Would give me enough material to practice sewing my own pleats. Or is this also a bad idea?
