    Details here Cornwall RV

    See you there.

    I / We (Mark my cousin & partner in crime) hope to come up...Mark has Mrs and kids to contend with, so we may just select the days we want. I also thought it would be good to say Hi.

    Another good source of free leather is old settees, sometimes you come across them outside blocks of manky flats, or you can take a trip to your local council re-cycling centre or tip, the bit you sit on is 'Chromed leather', the rest is vinyl, I've made various things out of it
