Does anyone have patterns in a digital format? I was just pondering playing with a laser cutter. I know it wouldn't be hard to make some off some seats, I was just wondering if someone had done the work for me and was willing to share.

I second that. We have a shop here in Austin "TECHSHOP" that has all kind of shop equipment , woodworking, metal working, sewing machines, injection molding 3D printers etc. You purchase a membership and you get to use all the tools they offer with training available. I have been buying older couches/sofas at thrift shops for very cheap(under $10 each) and salvaging the leather. Each couch/sofa will do a least 2 seats. MR Mike does great work, but I have 3 Fieros. I could use some patterns also. Otherwise I am just going to take out the seams and do it that way.

I also want to do the dash and consoles and the whole interior, but ideally would like new and different (updated) consoles and dash. I would settle for just doing the 2 1988's (1 is a T-Top) I have and leaving the 1986 stock since it is a 4 cylinder.

Any patterns would be a great help.

FYI i would never use couch leather as car leather due to it not being uv resistant.
