The string is tacky, so the first dozen or so holes are tougher than the rest. Line up the string with one hand, as you draw through with the other so you minimize friction and slight tearing of the lace holes. Draw the string very tight after lacing the first couple of holes, as it really looks best when pulled tight. Clamping your thumb or finger on the lace as you re-insert through the next hole keeps the tension. I love the look, the feel and quality. Plan on putting a good quality leather conditioner on it to soak overnight the first night, as the leather is pretty dry. These will become standard on my vehicles as they age, and even new vehicles without leather grips.
