    Hi.

    Best way is to have a sheet of clear plastic put over them then sew them both straight in, that way they won't get dirty and look crap.

    Steve,

    Seeing as you are in the business of retailing leathers etc... do you know anyone who can sew these buggers on with the clear plastic coats?

    Second question: How much does it cost?

    I have some patches on my leathers and when the plastic cracks (as it does) they look crap.

    You reckon it's best to let them get grubby and clean em up then?

    Hi.

    Andelle motor leathers in Bolton do all mine:

    www.andellemotorleathers.co.uk ask for Michelle or Dave

    Not sure on the cost as they usually do mine in bulk bt mention my name and you will get a good deal.

    Deffo not, they don't really clean up that well as the dirt gets inground into them.

    And ruin your leathers Most of the glues avaliable will take the colour out of the leather when it either falls off or you take it off beacuse it is filthy, I have seen it loads of times.

    Cheers Steve, will see what the quality of the patch is like before I consider sticking it anywhere.

    Thinking out loud now, would I really want to go sticking things on my leathers that could damage them - No not really!!

    Reckon I may get the patch and stick it on my paddock jacket instead.
