how much fabric?

does anyone have a guess as to how much material is needed to do a 35 ford fordor interior? I'm going to a place that has some leather on sale and need to make sure I buy enough so it all matches.
thanks,
John

It depends on what you are planning to cover. A little bit of detail would help. Also what style. Tuck and Roll. Sew thrus? What style?

you could gain a rough estimate by figuring out the yardage. 1 yard of standard automotive materials is 36"x 54"
