Has anyone used faux leather for the interior?

You can but if you use it for the seats you will sweat like a fat girl in a sauna. A lot of so called leather trimmed cars are now Faux Leather with the bits you sit on real leather only.

You also need to make sure it's UV stable as it will breakdown & crack otherwise. You can buy automtive leather from Andrew Muirhead Link Not sure what the prices are like.

We use real leather and leatherettes in our book covers. Real leather wears better.

Good point - I'll send them a message asking.

Dear frantic_franc,

Hi,

No I wouldn't have thought so.
