Will you be using 'double bodkin stitching' ?

/ I use the FL2 for what it was made for. I spend 6mths/yr on a single road trip adventure.

New Zealand 2007 Freelander 2 TD4 SE Auto Sumatra Black

Just did the wife's CRV with one of these. Looks good!

Few hints i'd have given to myself a week ago:

If you can, take off steering wheel and do it indoors.
Trust the factory stiching - it fits well, so dont try and adjust fit on the fly by multiple stiches through one hole.
It takes a while to do. Don't do it close to night time thinking "it'll only take 45mins", and then have to finish it with a headlamp.
Yes, you'll stab yourself with the needle.

If money was better, i'd throw it at a profesional referb, but for 15quid and a bit of time, i'd say totally worth it.
