Race suit repair

I took a couple slides last year and one of them brunt through the leathers on my left elbow. There's a local shoe/leather repair guy that has repaired my gloves before. I'm going to see what he says about my suit. Does anyone here have any recommendations if he can't do it?

Barnacle Bill's Heavily used on the STT forum. Highly recommend.

Ask about leather cleaning while it's there.. He get's all the salt out and treat's the leather..

Nate Butler in Denver owns Bloodnickel Leathers, makes custom race suits and does tons of repairs. Give him a shout and check with him. Tell him Adam Bauer sent you, I have a suit he made. Really good stuff.
