: Bruce has the right idea here. I would LOVE to build a run of limited edition Dakar Armrests.
: A half hide will build about 15 armrests. I **assume** we will get pretty close to dakar with Spinneybeck's stock colors. I have never ordered samples of Spinneybeck's yellow leather. You would think one of the ~650 stock colors would be pretty close. Custom dyelots require 5 hides, which is about 150 armrests and over $3500. Yikes. Not an option.
: The good part is there is not any other dakar yellow INSIDE the car, so we don't have to try to match factory leather.
: At any rate, the magic number is 15. However, I am getting close to releasing custom leather shift knobs, parking brake handles, and 3-spoke steering wheel trim. This would use up some of the hide, reducing the 15 number. Roll Hoops - as soon as I can make them - would really use up hide space. There are alos some other items in the interior that I have my eye on, but have not gotten a chance to cover yet.
: If you have interest in a Dakar Armrest (Kathy Melby where are you?), post a reply here or email me or Bruce directly.
