Rib Upholstery - Scotland

Can anyone recommend an upholsterer to recover the seating on my rib?

Ideally they would be based West/Central Scotland, provide good value personal service......

Thanks.

I can't recommend anyone from experience, but a new trademember, ScotSeats, recently joined here from that part of the world. They supply seats to Redbay. I assume they can do re-upolstery too?

Might be worth talking to Owen Sails, Benderloch. I got some vinyl off them a while back. They had loads of shaped foam for jockey seats etc. and said they did a lot of work for RIBs.

Depends on where you are but Sally at Jessail does a very good job, does good covers as well. Her number is 07771 970 578.

I provided the bit of wood and a local upholsterer near Lochgilphead did mine for around 20 each. Been on a year with no problems.

I've used Sally at Jessail to recover RIB seats - she's very good and reasonably prriced, but she does get very busy, so it can take a while to get the work completed.
