Any reccomendations on a farir priced upholstery shop in denver? Have a set of recaros that would look great in the 40 but the side bolstering needs to be recovered.

Thanks

I was just about to post the same thing. I have a saab that needs some new leather and foam with recaro seats. Please post up info when you get it.

Any confirmation on the name of the upholstery place? I got a set of the 84-88 SR5 sport (lumbar, adjustable bolsters) seats from Squishy but Toyota doesn't seem to sell the replacement foam cushions anymore, the plan to replace the foam and get covers looks in doubt. So I need to have them reworked the custom route I guess. The driver's side is pretty worn out. I would prefer a south side place because driving up to 70th and Broadway would be a pain.

Dave,
For a Southside shop you could check out Colorado Car Interiors (1/2 block east on Chenango at Broadway). I have not actually used them yet but after talking to the guy I plan to have them do some work on the 80 seats.

I used Auto Interiors Plus on HWY 287 & Dillon in Broomfield for the 40 seats. He did a really nice job but was not too cheap IMHO. I'd go back there again.

Have you got an example? What is 'not too cheap', IOW what did you have done and what did it cost?

These are the guys that recovered my rear Conn-Ferr seat in my FJ40. They did a good job -- looks original.

I'll pull the receipt later tonight. He installed two seat covers (I provided), installed seat heaters (I provided), fixed broken springs, and used new matting. They look really good.

I think it was $4-$500 total.

Can you also give me more info on this? Did you use ones that fit over the existing cloth or replace it? Suppliers?

Other than the common edge wear on the outside of the driver's side the cloth is in decent shape. So I was thinking of having just a new panel sewn in to replace the worn one but otherwise just leave the cloth as is. So new foam and a repair, which I would expect to be a bit less.

I got new vinyl for the seats from CCOT. They were some replacement seat covers that went on in place of the original stuff.

I saw a bunch of seats the guy was working on and he cuts new foam if yo uneed it. prolly sews new covers and patches for old ones too.

I know a guy off of Santa Fe. Golden Needle, he did my Alfa top and leather seats, door panels also. Tell him Chris Davis with the red Alfa that he did the tan top and tan leather seats sent you, he remembers me.

Very reasonable, always has a couple of cool vintage cars he is working on.

One man shop.

Hey, it would be kewl if we started a thread in Vendors for recommended shops. Upholstery thread, bodywork thread, that kind of thing. Easy to find, one stop shopping.
