Leather or Vinyl (leatherette) ///HELP\\\

OKay... since you clicked on this, mind helping me out?

Do you think the Center Console Arm-Rest/Lid is covered in
Leather or Vinyl (leatherette)
I have it apart & my guess is VINYL, but I would have thought it would be leather..

What do you think...?

Only the seating surfaces (that's where your butt and back touch) on the first and second row are leather, everything else is vinyl (or maybe the hide of the extinct nauga).

Was the aftermatket expensive? I was thinking of maybe just doing the front in I think they call it gathered. I checked out Katzkin, but didn't see any pricing.

What shop did you use in NorCal? I have seen the Katzkins kits on ShopSAR for around $1100 two tone with leather and suede, just considering my options...
