Online Upholstery Kit Companies

I am looking into some options for the interior of my 1954 Chevrolet 210 Deluxe 2 door car.

I have some local price quotes and I would like to use one of the local guys but, it is hard to beat some of the pricing I have recieved for the upholstery kits I have found online. My only concern is, I don't know anyone who has used one of these companies.

My question to you is: Have you, or anyone you know used any of the following online upholstery shops:

Fryers Auto Upholstery
15025 22nd Ave. N.W.
Marysville, WA 98271

360-652-4794 or 1-888-205-4659
website: www.autoupholsterykits.com
e-mail: rcfryer@hotmail.com

Factory stich patterns, vinly material and will do custom colors. Seats and door panels
----------------OR---------------------------
Online Upholstery and More
Chris
Phone: 716-870-4406
http://www.onlineupholsteryandmore.com/products.aspx

These are the only online companies I have found for reasonable pricing.

Aftermarket stich patterns can do custom colors. Custom makes door panels as well.

Remember that your car's seat covers are as simple as they come and are extremely plain Jane. Simple seat covers would not be expensive. They also are probably not going to be what you really want. You will also have to put the covers over the old padding, which is also probably not what you want to do. Check out this thread, it is the seat out of a '53 Chevy 150: CLICK HERE

Dan,
I have read almost every thread you have started

I went and talk to a local interior guy he was $800 just for labor to do the front seat.

Buying one of these seat covers from one of these online shops is the cheapest way to do things so far. I was thinking I could buy some of that foam padding from you to replace my worn out stuff and install the seat covers myself.

The company that can do the factory stitch pattern in custom colors wants $650 for both the front and rear seat covers.

The company that does their own stitch pattern, very similar to the one Dan posted a link to, wants $450 using their colors and I would assume $550-$650 for custom colors.

Everyone's door panel pricing is about the same... Confused Confused ;(

Your local interior guy wants $800 to put on the front seat covers? Does that include re-padding them and checking for broken springs, etc.? The stock seat covers are simple enough to do yourself, but covering the trim pieces along both sides of the lower front seat is tricky.

The one local interior guy I talked to said, $800 for labor but I think he meant to say labor and materials. But honestly, he does work on high end cars like Porsche's Ferraris and range rovers so I think he is being a little arrogant. I should really go by one more shop and show them the seat covers.

I dont feel comfortable sewing the seat myself, but I am willing to try and install it myself.

So back to the online suppliers, Anyone have experience with these companies? I asked on thehamb.com but I think these company owners are the ones replying

Yes, they should. The Bel Air just had more chrome and options than the 210 and 150.

Well thats an option for me then. because Many of these companies sell the Bel Air seat covers but, not a seat cover for the 150 or 210. So, the only thing I would have to do is get someone to remake my door panel, unless I want to use the belair door panels too!

Decisions decisions.

The Bel-Air seat covers are a little fancier than the 210 or 150 seat covers, but that's the only difference.

You would be wise to use new Bel-Air door panels. The door panels have a goofy way of attaching to the door with metal strips attached to the panels and a corresponding lip attached to the door. If you can get panels that have the metal strips attached, you will be way ahead of the game.

Could someone please recommend me to a supplier for vinly material that I can use for my upholstery? The two shops I contacted to do have a color to match the paint sample I am sending them. Any websites that would carry what I need? I have already tried those that were posted in this thread.

Im looking to match the Fiesta cream color of my 54 chevy 2dr. sedan

Thanks guys,
I have seen all of these sites except the SMS autofabrics page.

What I am going to start doing is calling these companies instead of simply referring to their webpage.

I am going to make a bunch of paint swatches to send to these manufacturers and see what they come up with. Since I have so much other sheetmetal work to do, I'm not in a big rush.

Thank you for all your help. I'll let you know what I end up doing
