I've never had it myself, always prefered leather as I think it would mark and stain very easily. Just my opinion, but I reckon leather is going to be easier to keep clean.

I agree with Archie. I would stay with leather. I am sure he and Pete use nothing but leather on their restorations.

On our restorations we use leather made from the skin of a rare animal found only in Sumatra called the "Nauga" evidently this animal, unlike other animals, can shed thier skin without harm to themselves so by us using this "Naugahyde" we are being animal friendly. All our work comes with a guarantee that no animals were harmed during the restoration of the car.
