Where would I be able to buy vinyl? I'd like to get the same vinyl material/colour that a trimmer used to do my dash. I would use this trimmer, but he is charging me something like $60 for the door inserts when it's something I could easily do myself.

Try going to the market and see if there are one of those old people that sell rolls and rolls of carpet...they may have vinyl there. I bought myself black and white vinyl from the market and they are pretty good quality...just never had the time to utilize them with my trimming.

phong =P~

Most trimmers are the same. The fact that they are charging money for work I can easily do.

The only reason you get quoted a s**t price for an upholstery job is the upholsterer dont want to do it. So if he quotes you a high price, chances are you will go F**k that and go elsewhere.
On the other hand if you say yep thats cool, he has to do it, but gets more money for the job anyways.
