Coral red interior overhaul $220 gamble

Hey guys,

I wanted to keep a log, see what anyone thinks of my latest project and hopefully get any tips from anyone with experience in leather repair.

SOOOOO... I drove 7 hours to walla walla Washington to pickup a full coral red, sport interior for $220 - the interior is torn up pretty bad but I'm open to a challenge.

Here we go!

How in the world did someone tear up their interior that bad?? Was the previous owner a Grizzly Bear?

You paid 220 for that?
Are you re-upholstering everything?

UPDATE

Sorry for the delay, I gave up at one point and just got back into it.

Finally starting to see the results I wanted... took lots of practice and I'm just beginning to understand how to attack this project.

Check out some of these before and after photos.

P.s. The white on the seats is me filling the leather to blend and smith before I dye it.
