    It cost $125 for me to have it covered. They just did what you can see since doing more than that would have been wasteful....it goes down about 2-3" but nothing more

    Glad it sounds better!

    a regular car upholstery shop....they might have to order the vinyl and if so it might take about a week, but otherwise it's pretty simple for those guys.....a lot easier than a seat...lol

    sure you can buy it, but chances are if you just go with the stuff that the upholsterer prefers it will look better....seeing as it's what they work with all the time....

    yeah - it's one of those things.....if you do it at home and don't know what you are doing it can ruin the ENTIRE job.....but if it's done right and it looks good.....it can make a ****ty job look killer....

    lol

    Ok well here is some photos of where it is now primed. Tomorrow I am gona go to some upholstery shops and see if they can vinyl it since the black paint looks like so cheap, the exact opposite look I want after spending days working on it. Iím thinking its smooth enough for vinyl.
