    Has anybody removed the covering from a soft comb and replaced it with a new cover? This one is vinyl, not leather. Is this a do it myself project or should I send it to a pro?

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    It will probably need new foam as well, really no sense in doing half the job when you already have the cover removed to recover it anyways. The foam is fairly expensive and not easy to come by. If you were going to do a few, it'd be worth investing in materials, for just one, I'd pay someone to do it.

    I you decide to send it out, I get $50 to recover the soft comb. This price includes replacing the foam. Add $10 to the price if you want it covered in leather. Larry

    I recovered mine in thin, soft black leather using an adhesive product called Barge Cement. It's held in place just fine for over a decade.

    Guys,

    Thanks for all the input. Mine just looks a little scruffy. I will shoot it like it is for a while.
