    Very cool Q. That red and black go great together. Any plans on the rubbers, or are you just keeping them black?

    This is the second pair of custom Mar's I've seen, saw some denim's in another thread. Must say, these take the cake! Best looking pair I've seen, to be honest, I would prefer this to the leather originals. Great work sir! By the way, those have a very "Chicago Bulls black with pin-stripe" jersey from the 90's feel! I can see them with red ear socks....veeehhhy nice.

    I was planning black all around. I think the red would be too much


    A buddy of mine did them. We were thinking of make the service available to those with craters.

    And you're right about the bulls feel. I didn't see it at first but def there. More Jordan than the Leathers!

    its glued down on the original leather mars, but i've used something less permanent - blu tac. i'll probably change it to what Q is using.. carpet tape or a strong double sided...

    It's black suede and just regular old thread. Everything's held by tape and stitches. Glue is too much

    great job man, and i totally agree with the no glue policy. everything is completely reversible/removable to factory. you gonna leave your other ones or custom them too? you can make a Home/away matching set with... white suede?
