Default New Upholstery 2.5RS

I like to change to a different material than the one that comes standard on a MY00 2.5RS seats.

Do you know any good Upholstery shop in the Greater Vancouver Area that do other material than leather.

Thanks.

i asked this before, and didn't get any answers either. i don't think many people on this board have done any custom interior stuff...you may have better luck on a local honduh board.

If you find anything out, let us know though.

ps. You can try the future shop in langley...the guy that runs the stereo install shop or whatever does a lot of car shows (check www.hzemall.com)...really nice work.

Well there is a shop right next to Specialty that do interior stuff like that. However, last time I was there they only have classic cars at the shop. Won't hurt to ask.

If money isn't an issue for you, there are tons of shops around town that can do it for you.

There are: Seat Cover Center (not sure is this the name of it) on Victoria & Hastings ( or maybe 1 block south of hastings); a seat cover place that does all the seat restoring for california cars in North Vancouver, Another one in richmond

I forgot most of their names, but on average, $1200- $1500 to have leather seat covers, Custom material may cost more like $1500+.

Why don't you just swap in a 2003 2.5RS seats? those are very supportive and nice ! I've a pair for sale, $300 and it's yours ! Like brand new !

Money is alway an issue. However, I did Phone a shop on Ontario Street, and they will do two tone leather plus the door panel for $1,395.00 plus tax, which I think is a good deal, but I do not want to spend that much.

Do you have the back seat too. and do the 03 seats bolt on?

I just got my car out of the body shop and I asked the guy about interior work, and he gave me the number of a friend that he said does excellent work.

Arnie Schwab
(604) 531-7812

Tell him that you got his number through John at Boyd Autobody in Kelowna.
