Sewing machine
#11
At home I have a Sailrite LSZ-1 (quite useful since it's portable - I use it during my work trips, at home and at the garage when needed), at work I have a TechSew 2700. Won't recommend Singer or Brother since they're quite fragile to deal with leather. Industrial ones are way much better, but they will cost you a sum. 
These guys have great recommendations for upholstery: http://www.get-up-and-go.com/upholstery-forum/index.php
And for sewing machines specs you can check some reviews like this: https://wisepick.org/best-sewing-machine-for-leather/

Fabrice i got chatting with a 76 year old upholsterer who has done the job since he was 16. He showed me his sewing machines. He has one for normal stitching and a second machine for sewing the piping. The shape of the foot on the second machine was obviously designed to go down each side of the piping. The machine that does the piping runs at a slower speed to the other one

You should start your own thread and post more info. Please introduce yourself and what car you are working on. This forum deals mainly with 1971 - 1973 Mustangs. The struts in the pic look like maybe a Fox body. Most any of the automotive parts houses can supply you with the struts. You just need to take the Year, model, engine, transmission information and they can look them up. You can also go to their web sites and look them up.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

aah, that brother brings back memories, my mum used to sew at home part-time work using a Brother like that. sadly she got rid of it, could have come handy for retrimming...

You need a heavy duty sewing machine. For example - SINGER 4423, I found the best list here
