Hi guys,

Just after some feedback from anyone with experience in upholstery. Just got a quote for $275 + GST to repair some stitching on the passenger seat of my ute. Thought it would be a straight forward re stitch so thought would be less expensive.
Thoughts cheers in advance

Depends on how much of the repair you want done by the trimmer. No side airbag ?
Seat has to come out of vehicle, disassemble to get base cover off, and whether it is OK to just restitch it as it may be frayed and let go again.
Or do most of the hack work yourself and just take the cover in. Could mean the difference between a 15 minute job, and a > 2 hour job.

2097 ? postcode, or year.

OP's seat looks like Z Series which has leather bolsters.
Yep has the leather, I've looked but can't find any with the leather.

Could you just use contact to glue it back in place?
