I'm thinking of giving this a try with an old Concor. I've read up a bit and I believe I understand the basic process but I'm wondering:
1. Where do you source leather? I was thinking of an upscale upholstery shop.
2. Do you request a particular grade or weight of leather? Obviously it can't be too thick or it won't lay down as it should. It needs to be durable, and color-fast would be nice.
3. Do you replace the padding, and if so where do you source that? What density do I want? (I think I can re-use what's on the saddle, but I'm trying to be thorough, and heaven knows what's going to happen when I try to peel the old leather off.)
4. What kind of contact cement do you recommend, or not recommend?
Answers to questions not asked are of course welcomed as well. Thanks.
