    So one of the cool things about the Engl Retro is the fact that the face comes off so you can change how it looks. Well, the only color it came with that i ever use is the black. Then i had the idea to re-upholster the other 2 panels and see how they looked. I have never re-upholstered anything before so they are certainly not perfect, i have a little tightening to do in places, but i think they came out pretty cool. My inspiration for the looks are from the Conan the Barbarian movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger, my favorite of all time. i Give you the Engl ' Barbarian' and the Engl 'Doom Rider' IMG_0083 22.jpg IMG_0085 22.jpg

    That looks sweet! I’d be too tempted to do orange snakeskin or something!
