The saddle is oiled with 100% neatsfoot oil and only 100% neatsfoot oil. I will use some saddle butter on the back of the fenders so sweat does not bleed though. Oiling the saddle can takes a couple days to finish. One heavy coat is applied, the oil is heated to help penetrate the leather. Then another coat or two to even the color out. Once the oiling is done the final assemble is done. Not to far away and this saddle will be done.
