Recently, I accidentally carved a nice gash in my Eldo's front driver seat. I would like to either replace the seat or get the leather repaired along with a slightly worn arm console.

Now is the chance to plug anybody that repairs leather seats at a reasonable cost.

Any recommendations would be greatly appriecatied...

Thanks!

They did all the upholstery for the dealer I worked at, and also they did some work on my boat. They do a GREAT job.

I went there for a quote, $650 bones for the seat and the console. I thought that was a little high.

I'm looking for the guy working out of his garage that needs the side cash and exposure.

someone put a nice, big scratch in the passenger side of my leather seat in the Saleenamobile...I need someone to fix that also...let me know if you find someone that will do the job inexpensively.

Unfortunately with seat repair, this kind of stuff is going to be expensive. It's an art to replace and/or repair these items. I don't think you'll find anyone willing to fix these inexpensively, and if they do, the result will be a repair that you will not be satisfied with. I had to pay alot too when I had my boat cushions fixed, but the repair was well worth the money.

Just my .02

If you have the patience and time, there are repair kits that you can buy fairly cheap. I repaired my snowmobile seats and my car leather seats for a big fraction of the cost and I was pretty satisfied with it.

Bobrob, I used your recommendation and couldn't be any happier with the result and the quality of craftsmanship.

Tony replaced my entire lower leather drivers seat and leather console for $250.

Tony's Convertible Tops and Custom Upholstery. "We Sew Anything".

Page him at 313-840-9707 if you need any work done.

A C Trim on 9 mile in Eastpointe between gratiot and kelly. Maybe give them a try. We send our stuff over there every once in a while for burns and top repairs. Kinda a backyard lookin place for sure. Its closer to gratiot and on the south side. Theres a raggy lookin sign that has their name and I-94 service listed on it.
