Default Seat Re-Upholstery Question

Hey All!

I have an '05 Saabaru and I have replaced the seats and doorcards with those out of an STi. I want to have the rears reupholstered to match, but I am pretty unfamiliar with reupholstery as a trade and want to make sure I get a fair price... So for anyone who is familiar or who has done such a project, I have two questions:

1. How much did you pay?

2. Do you have a material code/color code for the stuff you used to match?

Thanks!

You cannot buy the exact blue Alcatara to match. They no longer sell the exact mach. There is a similar blue, but it is a bit off.

I had a friend who used 2 sets of STi rear seats to recover his wagon seat. It cost about $350 for the labor and then there was the cost of the two sets of STi seats. Not cheap. Looked fantastic though.

I'm in this same predicament right now actually. I have the grey WRX interior and mint Ver. 8 front seats. I'm going to do door cards in black Alcatara and probably just do the rear seats black as well. Two shades of blue would drive me nuts.
