    Hey,

    I'm looking for a place to take my leathers and have them fixed before the next race round. The leather burnt through on the elbow and the stitching gave way where the elbow pad connects to the forearm. Looking for advice on where to go. I'm in a bit of a time crunch and I'm looking for a place that is reasonable as well.
    Any suggestions?

    I had mine repaired at A+ tailors after round 3. Took 4 weeks but Sam did a good job; looks good, good quality leather. Don't know if the price was fair; 450 for new a@# cheek and complete forearm. A small panel should be 100?

    yikes. that seems a bit pricey. i would have debated to just get a new suit at that price point and send the crashed one to bickle in the off season as a spare.

    Thanks guys! DNR leather was able to do it in a pinch, so I chose to go with them. They seem to do good work. Have quite the history of working with racers over the years.
