Jenkins Interiors?

I'm looking for some feedback aboutthis company. I'm coming into some cash and want to redo the seats in my car over. Anyone have anything to say about them? Secondly, when one gets the seats done over, do they automatically replace any sagging springs, etc? I have s springs in the car I'm thinking of doing.

What are you looking to get done? If you are trying to get a restoration done, that should include seat spring repair. If you just want new seat covers and you don't care about using authentic fabrics and materials, they don't automatically repair the springs. A good upholstery shop will call you to report any spring damage and recommend that you let them fix them before they continue. Naturally, this will cost you some more money, depending on what's wrong.

Well, my goal is to have seats that are just like day one. Jenkins told me 4500 bucks for new covers.

Just make sure you have them write down exactly what is included for that price. If I were you, I would ask them for the names and phone numbers of 3 of their recent customers and call them to see what their experience was like. If you get glowing reports from them it should set your mind at ease. What car are you talking about, and are these leather seats?

It's a 1970 Coupe DeVille. I've had it 15 years. I won two national titles with it. But now the leather is starting to show it's age. I'm never getting rid of this car.

Jenkins gets rave reviews aboutthere work. Everyone I''ve seen online say they are the best out there.

I hope the reviews are legit.
