If you were going to cover the whole seat you might get by with four dinocrocs, depending on size--one for the main part of each seat and one each for the margins / sides / tuck unders, etc...

Full disclaimer though...this is not my field of expertise...I'm guessing and only because you asked .

No, I was thinking of doing the whole seat, yes - I thought you meant if they had backs. Theres no visible back, so it can stop at the wrap around. Im not explaining it right but I think you know what I mean. Behind that picture is the engine.

4 dinocrocs (that match) are now on the radar....

If interested, the store has shoe trees specifically made for Bonafes's lasts, made by Spring Line in Northampton.

I would think you would slide around a bunch. Better to do suede of some sort for some grip and just replace as needed.

What about "suede" gator?



Personally I think gator interior is a bit (a bit?!) over-the-top. However, were I in a position to put alligator or croc in a Ferrari, I'd only do the seat inserts (the stitched seat and lumbar support in the picture) and keep the regular leather on the edges. Just my $0.02.

Ummm... it is a Ferrari, you are already over the top.

Can you suede gator? If I saw shiny gator in a Ferrari, I would instantly think it was a garage queen that was never driven hard at all since you would slide right out.

Love the suede gator.

And want to keep it subtle, do like the idea of the trims. Hmm.
