      ISRTV Amazon Store   11/29/16

      Hi All, We created an Amazon store that's pretty basic and currently only for U.S. shoppers. If you purchase something from it and then other items through Amazon, we make a small commission. It won't cost anymore than Amazon normally does but will help support our show and website and would be greatly appreciated ! You can get to it by going here : http://www.isrtv.com/isrtv-amazon-store/ Thank for your support !

TS-PC Racer Leather Grips

4 posts in this topic

Don't like wearing gloves racing and my hands were destroying the felt grips so needed leather. Went red :)

Never done this before - bought leather that was way too thick (2.4mm - doesn't sound much but it was!) and it's a bit rough around the edges but damn it feels good. Makes the grips feel even chunkier which I like and the leather copes well with hot sweaty hands.

The original grips peeled off with some tugging and provide a decent template to cut out another material. While the 2.4mm thick leather feels excellent in the hands, damn it was hard to work with and I don't recommend it unless you know a bit about working with leather.

Yeah glued it on with THIS

Each section needs held for about 10 mins till it's set enough to move onto the next part so took a while. Being such thick leather I could only do one wee bit at a time but thinner leather should be easier. I soaked the leather first then moulded it around and held it in place till it was mostly dry - this gave it some shape. Then I glued it on.
