    I am looking for suggestions re: a quality shop that works on leather in the lower mainland.
    My tan tonneau cover requires a repair.
    Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Are you looking for someone who does dye work or fabric repair?

    I've used a gent named Sean (VLC Upholstery Repairs 778-995-3409) who is very good with fabric dyes and he can do small repairs. I had Sean touch up my seat bolster without discolouring the stitching which matches the exterior paint. Sean has worked on my Fcar and Pcar in the past and is also mobile.....

    Cheers

    Sadly, living out in chilliwack I haven’t seen a lot of anything these days. Hopefully that changes soon now that the weather is getting better

    Sorry to hear Niklas. I've been out and about quite a bit over the past few weeks with both cars.

    I live in Yarrow. You're certainly more than welcome to drop by, just send me a PM.

    I might have to take you up on that offer, Gary. Perhaps I can free up some time this summer to drop by and admire your beautiful cars. I’ll bring the beers!


    That aside, finally spotted something worthwhile on this gorgeous Monday: a beauty McLaren parked in Brown’s

    Very nice. Is there an upgrade or perhaps an addition to the garage in the near future by chance?

    F8 Tributo is a little out of my price range, unless I want to be living out of the car :D. Oppenheimer or Strathcona Park, homeless with my Ferrari parked on the street? Optics might be a problem :eek:.

    Love the F8. Great combination of GT and track.

    Dark red Aventador SV 152/24th in South Surrey. Was late at night and the driver was being extra polite, keeping the car very very quiet. Those things scream.

    max, are you in South Surrey/White Rock area?
