    Worn Out Upholsetry

    Anyone had their seats re-upholstered? The seats in my 99 TA are worn out, beat up, discolored, rough, and aren't very comfortable. I want to reupholster the front and back so they'll match. If anyone know where to get to order a kit let me know. Oh yeah, they're "leather"

    check ebay, runs about $500 for front and back,

    also consider just buying new seats, i bought a nice whole leather set out of a 97 for $150, yeah, theres great deals out there

    I've checked into it at a local place, he said he would do my drivers seat for, I think, ~$375, and if I wanted a seat heater that's another $150.

    I agree with new seats idea, especially if it comes with new power seat motors.

    That seems like alot. I guess it depends on the quality of the "leather."

    I think you can buy heated seat kits off of eBay for cheaper and just put them in yourself before you take them to the shop.

    I'd shop around alittle more, get them batteling against each other. Just make sure you see some of their finished work.

    I was quoted $1100 to do just my front seats. Then I found out that hawksthirdgenparts.com has upholstery kits.
