New guy here.Vinyl questions

First off let me introduce myself. My name is Ben and I live in Mason City, Iowa.

I love this site and have been reading the forums for quite awhile. I'm building a 57 Chevy 210 that is competely smoothed over. I have a ton of time into this car.

For the interior I chose to go with some 2000 Dodge intrepid dark graty ( agate ) leather seats. I like the color of the leather and I'm going to make my own door panels and cover them. I bought a cheap sewing machine and have been practicing like crazy. It seems to sew vinly just fine.

Heres my design :

My question is.. what is the best place to vinyl to match my seats ?

Thanks.. I love this site and its helped me out a ton with interior stuff

The leather seats from the Intrepid (or any other domestic car) are not completely covered in leather. The seating areas are real leather and the other pieces are vinyl that matches the color and grain of the leather. The matching vinyl is available from Detroit Body Products, but they only sell to upholstery shops, so you will have to have a shop order it for you.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
