there's some leather on the door panels . he used leather and vinyl on them. color doesn't match well enough. plus it was not suppose to have all that carpet on it.
i guess the only right way to do it is find a decent stitcher and just start over. of the last 4 cars i had done i got screwed on all but one. just really getting tired of excuses to why it does not get done.

thanks dan

That it was Dan. You and I both know that the seat would end up like an old Indian shrunken head.

well the 37 is at the stitchers shop . being redone. will save the trunk but he said the rest was garbage and he would not even try to save the seats. they were cut and sewn wrong in the first place . don't blame him one bit. gave a solid price and delivery date. i may let him do the 56 210 depending on the outcome . the other shop has a rude awakening coming as he will get the bill for it.

I hope you have better luck with this shop than you had with the last one.

he is aware of what is going on. if he wants to join the law suit then so be it plus he was told the first sign of the job being shoved aside we will come get the car. i will not tolerate that. i don't do it in my shop and don't intend to be done that way. there is no excuse for it. if you cant do the job don't take it . there will also be no up front money .

Anything would have been an improvement over what the first guy did. This looks much better.

I just love the white and the stitches look great also. Much better looking than the piping cord in the defect seats.

it is actually light gray . i don't care for contrast stitch cord either. not too bad considering he was working over the padding someone else did.
