Gauging Interest

Okay, I am thinking about starting my own "business" so to speak.
I have seen many threads about people looking for a hand brake cover and no one has one to offer, so I figured hey I will make one myself and see how I like it.

I have a CGM and black cloth seats so I don't know what material I would want it to be. But if I can pick up some black leather, black suede, or whatever color whoever is interested in wants, I would be more than willing to help that person out.

However, I have not yet made one for myself, but will here soon, I have no idea how much I will charge for one...

So if anyone is interested in this, please say so, and whatever color material and stitching you would like.

Try making one and let us know man. Most are going to want leather with stitching to match the stock colors and suede for ZL1's and 1LE's.

Yep I figured black leather with white/red/orange stitching. Or grey suede with red stitching.

I'd stick to the hand brakes just because anyone can just get a suede steering wheel by buying a ZL1 steering wheel. And most will go with OEM over aftermarket.

I was kidding. Would you be interested in a hand brake cover?

I believe the stitching is called stone, but it is a light grey. So grey would be fine too

Would you all prefer the stitching to be on top to be visible? Or on bottom of the hand brake?

lets see a prototype! for stitching, the thread size and pattern is what is most important, fabric dye pens can over the rest. buy some plain fabric and practice. you could do several prototypes with Walmart fabric before playing with genuine leather or suede

Already got leather and thread. Black leather, upholstery thread. Just need to figure out how to cut it to make it look best, not sure if stitching on top and bottom, or just stitching on top, or just on bottom. No one seems to be interested though.

Put out a prototype first. Then maybe you'll get more interest.

Glad I saw your thread - I already ordered a leather handbrake boot off ebay and was looking for a leather handbrake cover to match it. I would be interested in black leather with stone stitching. Make the stitching look like the one in this thread: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35425.
What price are you considering? You'll need to post pics before anyone is going to buy one, I think.
