I got an email from cruiser corps that my replacement front and rear seat covers for my 40 are being shipped today ( Ordered end of Oct when they were having a sale)
I need the seat foam redone and the upholstery installed.
Can anyone recommend a local shop that does good work?

I bought new foam and covers from SOR for the 45 and it wasn't difficult to install. I can give you a hand it you take this route.

What was the quote? If you don’t mind me asking?
I use to work at an Upholstery shop and thought about doing some side work.
“If your supplying the material it would be approx $300 to repad, repair the seat cover, and re-install.”

My seat has the typical 60 series split from sliding in and out. I was going to provide material (a good condition seat back) but not the foam.

Just let me know. I don't recall it being a particularly hard job but that was about 7 years ago and I'm old and forgetful.

It’s not a hard job. New foam, slide new covers on, screw and hog ring them on. What year are the seats?

I had BZ Auto Upholstery replace the carpeting in my Avalon and they did a great job! They also had a nice E63 AMG they were doing upholstery work on, along with some other luxury cars parked out front which made me feel better. They are in Lorton

Real happy with their work and great price.
