I was going to say that your upholstery would have cost you a lot less than mine which I had produced 'commercially' but then, of course, I realised that probably isn't the case...

Excellent job.

Are you going to put down new anti-slip on the deck around the seat base or just flo-coat? I've used Marine Fabricators in Stafford before for a custom light-pole so can recommend.
