Need to get a car seat recovered
I have a very good daily driver that the two front car seats need to be recovered.

Anyone deal with this before?

Any idea on costs?

It has been awhile, but I just went to a local upholstery shop. Wasn't crazy expensive if I recall. Quality of material will also be a factor.

Are you sure you can't buy them online? try searching online.. Custom Car Seat Covers - Seat Covers For Cars

Take it to an auto trim shop. They will replace the foam padding and recover the seat. It will feel like new.

Daughter's boyfriend is paying around $400 for front seats in a pick-up to be redone. Should be a ball park.

A buddy and I upgraded his seats to have heat.

steps: removed seats from truck, peeled off seat covers, added electric grids, reinstalled covers, ran wires, brought to dealer to wire to fuse box.

the easist part was the seat covers. I was shocked at how easy they were to remove and reinstall.

What is the year, make and model of the vehicle?

Look for oem seat covers online

It's a wide range depending on location and what you want done, you can get the seats recovered for $200 each give or take, if you want the seat itself re-padded etc you can run $400-500 at a fair place.

I can't say how tough it would be.

I will research some youtube videos and get back to you.

2003 - my mistake.

65K, mostly garage kept. Leather seats failed

If your 7 on a scale of 10 in handyman, contact

Awesome product, I have done several sets in our cars, last one being my wife's Lexus LX470. Under a grand for the front and back sets, includes armrest, headrest, console cover, back pockets, glue, hogrings, pliers. Took me 8 hours to do the entire package. Your fronts would probably be 350 to 400

A great company
