The belt kit was great! I enjoyed making it and the belt turned out nice. I had a couple of issues though. First was the color of the dye. The image from the website seemed to show a light tan, but once I applied the dye and sealant myself, the belt appeared a bright red. Luckily the color wasn't too crazy though. Another issue was the screws. The instructions said that there were 3 short screws and 1 long screw. I received 4 short screws and no long screws. I put together the buckle assembly, but not all the screws have engaged.

Overall good father's day gift
The instructions for dyeing and assembly were clear. There was more than enough dye and dye sealant solutions for the dyeing process. Very long belt length to accommodate larger waist sizes.
My only grievance is that my DIY kit did not include the "long" Chicago screw set. This means that the assembly for the belt loop could not fit. I wish they had a contact email or phone number I can call to request the correct length of screws.

The leather is VERY durable and good quality. The buckle and screws are also very nice and compliment the tan color. However, I received 4 screws of the same length and had trouble attaching the belt loop due to the thickness of the leather. I thinned the leather where it all met and it allowed the shorter screw to work properly.
