Looking for someone to do a refurbishment job on my seats. Anyone had this done or can recommend anyone for the job?

Yes they are looking tired now and the leather is coming away from the foam all over. Think it’s going to be a full refurb job

I would like this done - anywhere in Southwest?? That seems a really good price.

Standard response is Dave the Trimmer.  Charged around £750 for mine.  I've been back for another car since, his work is quality.

Does Ross do seats or are steering wheels his specialty?

Not sure - but that was my thoughts too.

I would drop him a pm and ask, his other work is spot on

That is a lot more than £50 a bolster! I contacted Dave for a quote on some interior bits having read good things about him on here, the quote was considerably more than I anticipated, I appreciate that may reflect the quality of the work but to me the interior of a VX is a very simple thing.

 

One very flat small dash, two very small flat doorcards and two basic seats which can be removed easily so wouldnt expect to pay large sums of money for a retrim.

 

Be interested to hear how others get on.

DtT is 'expensive' but top quality. I had him do my door cards years ago. I them had the rest of my interior done by a local trimmer. Both seats, dash and the black door parts in leather/alcantara and that was £1000 roughly...
