Re: Car Interiors

I thought about that myslef but I was thinking it must be hard to (once youre pulled them all off and made up new ones) to get them back on the seat and to stitch all of the sides and to the backrest. I would assume that the old singer wouldnt be up to the job? But I will have a look at it again and I might have a go at it.

Re: Car Interiors

if you do it yourself it might take a few tries to get it right but you may well save yourself some money and if u are a perfectionist about it you may even do it better than someone who does it for a living - after all it's not their car...
