So I got me some 2nd hand leathers .....but....

  1. Bought some 2nd hand Dainese leathers ( two piece) for a very lovely $600 the other day but the main zipper is f#$%d.
    Walden Miller want three weeks & $120 to replace a metal zip with a nylon one. I think that's a crap idea. Your thoughts :?: :?:

  2. Local dry cleaners often do zips.
  3. Take some digital photo's and send them to Mars Leathers, Underdog, Black Rose and a few of the other shops that do custom fitting and repairs. Get a quote from a few of them and then take it to whichever you feel is the best compromise between cost and quality.
  4. If you're going to race or do track days, hold out for a steel zip, even if you do have to wait....
