Need pricing estimate

i am tearing down my '90 ss truck to the frame and when the time comes after the frame,rear-end, A-Frame gets finished it will be time for paint and body and upholstery. I have never had any upholstery work performed and i kinda want to know about ( a close range) on what it might cost... hears what it looks like and here is what i have in mind ( not exactly but close) .... Would anyone know about what this might cost.....

Are you replacing the carpet and headliner? Are you doing anything with the dash? How about the console? I need to know what material you want to use and how much of the prep work you are doing yourself.

Types of material???

I dont know what Material im going to use. Some type of vinyl or leather for seats, dash, doors, and the back of cab. carpet on the floor and a nice head liner. No, it will be all new. what would you/yall recommend for price/quality life?

What do you think about using these...Lipstick Red Ultra leather and red suede

I also would like to hide the power window/locks maybe on the side of the seat or under the dash...

Red Ultraleather would be a good choice. Red suede is expensive because it is leather, but if it is only an accent, it would be cost effective for your interior. Because you have a truck, you are looking at about $3000 to $4000 for your interior, depending on how fancy you want it, what grade of carpet you choose, and how much prep work you do yourself.

That's pretty much it. Anything I don't have to remove saves you money, like old carpet and padding. Leave the headliner in, though. If you've never removed one, or the trim around it, you can make more work for the upholsterer. You don't have to take off the door panels either.

My shop is in a small town, so I don't get as much auto work as I'd like, but in the recent past I have done a 1948 Ford street rod, a 1953 Chevy street rod, a 1970 Olds cutlass, a 1966 AMC Marlin, a 1949 Packard, a 1977 Corvette, and enough old Mustang and Corvette seats to choke a horse. This winter I expect a 1941 Chevy convertible and a 1946 Ford. I'm also hoping to finally get some work done on my 1948 Chevy 5 window coupe street rod.

Enjoying the years of fun...

Dang, thats alot of cool cars/trucks.... Other than the income, just getting to put a piece of your work into those riggs, i bet is a nice payoff. getting to see and enjoy the fun of those old pieces of art....

Yea, I have recently took out the dash and all the carpet/head liner. so yea, it is a bit tricky but if it wouldnt really help the upholster than mine as well leave it in. lol..

And is there any pro's and con's to putting the door/window controlls under the dash or in the side of the seat... probably under dash.. would be more stable..

or somewhere else thats hidden to give it that smooth custom look...

and good luck on your '48. I'm sure you cant wait to start sweating from that one.

Just put the controls where they're easily accessible. You don't want to have to stand on your head to open the windows and doors.

If the finished interior shot is from a black SS454 PU (which I bet it is) It was done by a shop here in Tulsa, OK called CARS (Chucks Auto Reupholstery Service). He's a 1 man show and does only high-end work. His quality is fantastic. But.... the owner payed right at 10K for the interior. While it looks simple, EVERYTHING is one off custom.
