Thats why in all the baja's with flame you see stitches running though all the main colors all the way to the end of the material. If you were %100 perfect you might be able to do it but i have yet to meet a trim guy that is %100 perfect ....the only thing i can think of that could do that so precise is a computer....prob why you don't see stuff like that on older boats we did have the technology to do it....again i could be wrong i don't claim to know everything....if any one else has any incite in to this i would love to here it

thats correct there is no seam, it is done within the top piece of vinyl itself. who ever did it actually had to map out the Zx and cut a hole with the 1/2" SA added in. Its very well done and looks tedious for sure.

heres a closer pic of the ZX

heres some pics of a skin from a Donzi Daytona i had in the shop recently. The existing cover was re done in white and the customer is wanting to send this out to be re produced and installed this winter. This looks like a tough one for sure, lots of intricate corners with that dark blue drop shadow on the bottom of the letters.

some detail of the inside of the skin. I imagine this is one of those things like big graphics jobs in that you have to think way ahead of the progression on the project. I would have to admire anyone that is capable of this kinda work

$50/hr is a good price IMO. Plumbers and mechanics are making $100/hr.

Are you wanting to do re-upholster jobs or complete interiors? I took mine to a guy that had made his living mostly doing aircraft interiors. He had nothing to work with so he constructed all of the seats from scratch and then covered. He way underestimated the time it would take and lost his a$$. I have sent him a lot of work since to make up for it. Just be honest up front and give yourself enough room to use more time. If you don't use it... great.
