Yeah, one reason I thought about just doing a crescent/ half circle patch is because the sidestashes are 108mm under foot, and I am dubious about finding 4 inches of 108mm width skin. I think I would glue first with a permanent flexible fabric glue to make stiching easier, but yes, definitely stitching. I will check with the shops and Dave has offered up some skin
. Maybe I can find some 108, otherwise, on with the original plan. Good to know someone else has done it. Thanks for the suggestions.
