I paid $600 in 1997 to have two bucket seats redone. This was pretty much the going price in the Central Jersey area. They supplied the covers, buns, and the labor. Also, they replaced some of the springs which were bad.
Great info! Does anyone have experience with PUI covers?
Darren... I was also looking OPG catalog and was wondering if you remember what the brand name was.
I think Ground Up sells the ICP brand I know PUI cost more I just don't know what the difference is. Seems as if they are the only two manufacturers that I can track down.
IMO- PUI makes the best stuff.
OPG sells "Distinctive Inc" Brand covers... I ordered a set of covers for my 69 from them, and was less than happy with their apprearance. The quality of the vinyl & fit was okay though. NPD and Year One sell PUI, I beleive. Your best bet is to always ask- don't assume!
Also, from what I understand PUI & Distinctive are the only two repop cover MFGs... I thought ACC(auto Custom Carpet) was repoping them, but after checking a bit it looks like they are not.
I paid $500 to have the front/rear bench recovered/springs repaired, covers installed, and door panels "assembled". Thought I got a pretty good deal. BTW this was not including me supplying the covers and door panels!
