I have been recently quoted a price of $390 to redo my front buckets and rear seat in my 70. I am providing all materials including the seat buns. This is from the supposed best place around milwaukee. Does this sound reasonable?
I did my own and they turned out perfect! Save lot's of cash if you have the time. I have had people offer me money to do theirs but I try to tell them, it's really not that bad to do!
I think you can see them in my picts in my sig.
Just a thought
That's about right.
The place I've used for the last couple of projects charges $150-$175 labor for a front bench, $100 for each bucket, and $150 for both rear pieces.
I supply the covers...usually have them dropped shipped to them directly from the vendor.
Price is very reasonable. In Chicago I was quoted 2 hrs on rear seats and 8hrs per bucket from several shops. I ended up recovering mine myself. Not an easy job at all. The rear seat was a piece of cake done in an hr. The buckets were a total bear. becareful with the new seat buns..I am a tall guy @ 6'2-6'3 and now with the new foams my head just fits in with the top up. So as not to vendor bash in here email me if you bought a "kit" I have a very poor experience mine are aztec bronze and within a year they are now a cranberry color. my car is garaged and covered and driven mostly on weekends and even wehn left out i keep the car cover with and cover it and the color faded and they would not stand behind the covers.
