I admire your determination. I do not and cannot build them myself. I outsource them. They are one of the most difficult pieces you can cover in the entire car. The shape is quite complex if you study it closely. We use 3 panels of leather and have to double up all seams. Ours have padding inside to eliminate wrinkles like some other roll hoop covers on the market. If you send me an email, I will tell you what I pay a professional for the labor. The first set took them 16 hours to get right.

Speaking of other hoop covers, I have a pair of black HMS leather hoop covers in stock. I bought them so I could compare them to mine. I will sell those for $100 for the pair if anyone is interested.
