    Look around for a local fabric store. Best place IMO.

    Real leather isn't going to be cheap though

    know.

    Anything of that consistency is going to be a real pain to work with, so expect to use lots of heat and patience to get that to stretch uniformly...

    great place.

    http://www.yourautotrim.com/duratouch.html

    go to your local upholstery shop. we have a clearance rack that is always stocked with full hides of leather for $89 a hide. Get it in leather and get the box done up in double-stitch with a contrasting thread color. would look pretty dope.

    Under old S/N SATX210: zachzchw-bought, lowlinc-sold, ksin291-sold
    got quite a few good refs on diyma, caco, and ebay under Quest51210

    Leather does not stretch...fake suede....but use several beauty baffles to hide unwanted seems.

    Vinyl looks pretty good when done right. Pretty cheap and easy to use too.
