Custom built leather interior - anyone done it?

So as part of Goldilocks restoration I will be rebuilding the interior, but the question I haven't yet answered is whether I want to keep it original, or scrap the velour + vinyl combo, and have everything rebuilt in leather as close to OEM spec as possible. Looking at the price of original velour compared to readily available dyed leather, the end cost for raw material is in favour of leather. Labour would be another thing though.

Anyone done this on their W116 (to OEM spec, or otherwise)? I'd be most interested in some pics :)
