Howdy.

Just interested to know if anyone has had their interior and / or seats re-trimmed?

If so, how much did it set you back (if you don't mind me asking)?

And would you be so kind as to post a picture of the job?

Thanks in advance...

Do you mean in a different material?
Or just retrimmed back to stock?
I had bolsters on my ED XR interior done.
Along with repair to a broken rail, it was 180.
Could not pick it from stock, guy did fantastic work, although he apparently had to go to one of his competitors to get the right material!

I'll have to speak to you about 'that guy' J Man, a little re-trimming wouldn't go astray down the track. So i'm keen to find out like DowningJ.

I've had my door trims, support handles & conole lid done. $800.

For a full leather interior, seats & door trims, your looking at $2.5 - $3k.

For just your seats your looking at about $2k.

Now this is the sort of response I was hoping for.

Did they do a good job?

Do you know what they would charge to re-trim seats?

Did an excelent job. Wouldn't have a clue what they'd charge for anything else.
I do know a bloke who does cheap cash jobs, wouldn't know what he would charge but seen his past work on doors and he does a good job. I'm sure he'd do seats aswell. I've talked to him about redoing my EL XR seats, I want to keep teh grey velour sides, but the grey cloth with black spots down the middle I want to replace with black vynil.

I would do it myself mate. Not too hard. The worst that would happen is that you would have to take it in to get fixed. Which u would anyways coz you have to payem.

I did mine myself.

LOL. Go to this website. They offer the seats and you put it on.

URL: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/LEATHER-SEAT-VL- ... dZViewItem

Then you just slide them over the top. I actually took my seats out and stuff. Makes it easier. Just depends if you have time or not. I took my car apart. Took me a week but got it done. Ended up spray painting half of the dash. Its really up to you fordzatmyplace!. How much u wanna spend?
