I just finished upholstering two bucket seats and a rear bench, and it was not easy at all!!! The seats covers were already made in fabric and vinyl. The foam padding was glued on also. Making the cover from scratch, requires high end sawing machine and lots of experience!!! I paid $450 for my kit, but I'm around $1,300 right now on the interior. I'm making repairs and replacing some panels. The headliner and the lower panels I'm recovering, and it's not easy...

however, that being said, the estimate to re-do my interior, in fabric and vinyl was between $5K to over $10K for leather.

Boy, that looks pretty good. It is tough.

Oh, and get a digi camera you cheap bastard. You'd think you owned a cheap ass Hyundai or sum um. jk :tongue:
She won't let me get one :redface: , so I used digi camcoder... sorry!!!

Actually it's better when you take things apart to have it on video. You can move around the parts and identify them by just talking... but yeah, I'm cheap :D

I'm considering getting custom seat covers made much like Katzkins, but in fabric instead of leather. Do you think this would bring down the cost? I wonder if I could but a set of Katzkin covers, have someone make the patterns using the katzkin ones, then sellt he katzkin covers.

Or maybe I should just deal with getting the leather covers.
The price for leather will be much more than cloth. I did not have any other choices. My seat kit was $450, but $990 was the regular price. I bought a returned set and had some customizing to get it to fit to the frames. Leather would have been more than double the regular price. You have many choices and check with an upholstering shop on what they can do. Some can get the pattern from your seats...
