If they actually do what they say they do, their quality is probably pretty good. $650.00 for a vinyl front bench seat is not inexpensive. Why not let a local upholsterer do it, it probably won't cost you any more?

What car are these seats from? Do you have the old seat frames and any of the old seat covers? If you do, re-pad the seats, and do not buy the seat re-padding kit from them. There are much better ways to pad a seat than with cotton batting and burlap. CLICK HERE to see how to do it with modern materials.

For $700, I'll do a front bench seat in 100% polyurethane (like Ultraleather) any way you want and re-pad the seat in the process. Then it will look like this. The first picture is the rear seat. The front seat cover was almost nonexistent.

They are telling me they can do the original back seat ( 57 ford fairlane ) and the 2 bucket seats 90's mustang for around $650-700.00...

That is not very much for all of that. I would be a little leery as to the quality of the vinyl they are using. There's really no way to know unless you try them. Have you gotten a quote from an upholsterer?

Dan's correct about contacting a local shop. I own 2 cars with interior from one of the "leading manufacturers" & it is splitting down some of the stitch lines after 10 or 15 thousand miles. Some of that "wonderful expanded vinyl". :rolleyes:

You guys have convinced me, Ill be calling the local stitcher in town here , I actually worked for him , and I know what his quality is like ( Top Shelf ) he is the best around here ( Lehigh Valley ,PA ) I'm just afraid of the price , abut theres only one way to know .......ask. ThanksI'll let you know how it goes

So offer him some type of barter involving your own labor. Tell him you'll take it all off the frames and take it apart for him. Tell him if he lays it all out on the fabric that you'll cut it out for him. You should be looking at around $1200 ( $375 for each bucket and $450 for the rear seat) using good fabric. He may knock off a couple hundred if you do enough labor for him. Yes, that's more than EZ Boys, but I'll bet you'll be a lot happier with the finished product.

I bought a kit from Ezboy Rod interiors for my '51 Chevy. entire kit, ( headliner, windlace, extra vinyl, door panals for a 4dr, and 2 bench seat covers ) cost $1,650. I have not installed it yet, but everything was put togther very nice, shipped well. and Joel is nice and helpful. I'll have to check my paperwork, but the warranty is pretty good too
