Vinyl resurgence

Having said I couldn't be an upholsterer,  I may have to revise that following my latest efforts.

Needed to do the main tunnel panel,  so started by cutting and sticking on a thin piece of foam (I wanted a bit of padding) :


Bit of cutting,  lots of glue and voila:

 

I'm very chuffed with this bit of work - I really expected to screw it up and I would be stuck with it for years.

UPDATE: the spray can glue isn't great and after a few days, some edges were hanging off. I've resorted to using my scarily powerful glue I had from RC plane modelling days, which seems to have done the trick.
