I just wanted to say thanks for the advice. I tried an armrest first since it looked like one of the easier pieces:





I was hoping the flames would be a bit more prominent, but the amount I had to pull on that leather, there wasn't much left to dip into the contours. I haven't wrapped it around the back since it has to attach to another panel first.

I'm glad I went with the right glue, it sticks like nobody's business! The stuff I got from the local trim shop didn't need any thinning and was a bit more than I expected to pay. But still half of what the super 90 would have cost.
