Re-covering jockey seats

Hi

I have just been quoted 65 to re-cover a 3 man jockey seat in black vinyl.

Seems quite a lot?

Where's the best place to go in the Southampton area for this type of job?

Thanks

It is piped at the moment, but doesnt need to be.
I want to keep the bboat 'up together', but reluctant to spend too much, as it's not a fancy rib...

I paid 100 a year and a half ago for my 2 man jockey and i redid all the wood and dried out all foam. Granted I am in a captive market but even so it doesn't seem like too bad a price.

Just my 2p worth.

That sounds like a good price to me. I just had a large cushion re-done. Plain grey fabric with blue pipping and new foam, cost me 185+vat

I just had 2 jockey seats and 2 seat pads done, plus the suicide seat.
It was 160 - had it done up here in the north east by a local auto upholsterer.
Before and after pictures attached !
65 for your job seems pretty good price.

This little job cost me 25, It's only a Two man seat, but I am dead chuffed with it. It was Black Vinyl originally, but over the years it had split in several places, and the foam was saturated so it had to go. I just binned the foam and Vinyl, cleaned up the base board, took it down to a local upholsterers told them what I wanted, and the result is in the photos.
