Default leather seat repair

The bottom half of my drivers seat is in rough condition. I just got off the phone with a leather repair shop. He said I'm probably looking at $225-350 to replace it. Anybody know if this is a average price or not?

Just about normal. Start taking better care of your leather, mine is 9 years old with no wear. Use saddle soap and lexol twice a year to keep this from happening.

To repair your leather seat you will need to call a furniture repair shop.

I'm not sure if a furniture repair shop would work on a vehicle, I've been calling auto upholstery shops.

Default RE: leather seat repair

go to leatherrepairkits.com. They have a selection of automotive colors and LR is in there.
I used it on a couch that was cat scratched and it worked pretty well for only $50. You just
have to take your time & follow the instructions.

I'm sure that anyone who works leather will do the job if you just bring them the seat leather cover.
