Level 2 seats

Has anyone has their seats redone? The previous owner tore my seat on the far left from getting in and out so much, im wondering if a repair shop could match it to factory, they are the red/black seats, it is also a bit faded from sliding in and out as well.

we have a shop we deal with that does awesome work, we get so many vehicle back with the tear on the edge and they replace the panel of fabric & it is always a perfect match, so basically just find a good seat repair shop, and they should have no problem matching it 100%

we can get oem material assuming it's still available. that means it's the exact same material that is in it. just a few panels on the outside bolster area usually runs $150ish.

where are you located?

our cheapest ever bill from the company we deal with was $80.00 our most expensive was $250 (CAD mind you) but the average bill looks to be $100 and that is typically what we need fixed.

I have that bunching problem too! I hate that, level2 seats are too hard to find i guess ill just wait until it looks really bad then take it in. How long does it take the normal place to fix the side bolstering and the bunching up? Thanks for the help.

took Troy about 6 hours to totally redo the inserts but that's because we where bull ****ting and helping some one else install A OHC. It really should have taken a hour or two to do
