Hello Everyone:
I have taken down my original front split back front bench and the two flippable halves of the back seat to the springs and removed all batting etc, made new edge springs and am rebuilding the original spring sets that are bad. I want to retain some shop in the Phila Area that does custome seat upholstery andheadliner / door panels, not seat covers, and would be starting from the rebuilt seat frames / spring assemblies. Can anyone offer their input on what this could be expected to cost? I would do the fitting of the panels / headliner in my car myself

Thanks, Rich

You might consider getting your own new batting and foam prior taking the seats in to the shop. I found they tend to charge two to three times more if they have to supply the batting and foam. Depending on what materials you use, I'd guess $1500.

It's like asking what a paint job should cost. A paint job could be $29.95 or $29950.

Your best bet is to get several bids, look at the work of the providers, and see who you trust.

Hello;
The answer to your question about Custom interiour really depends on how deep your pockets really are.
I have seen cars that look really functional and have newer model seats, I've seen cars that have all bucket seats, I also have seen cars (I still don't know how they do it?) with leather floor coverings (in white).
To get some ideas go look at someone's interiour and ask who did it and how much it was.
Good place to start is "Street Seats" here in Florida. They have a really great web site and it shows lots of different styles.
As far as a bow hung headliner in a stationwagon, good luck with that project! I'm thinking "daunting" for my 57 chevy 4 door hardtop.

For my 55 Nomad I ordered a completely "custom made" new gray interior from headliner to carpet and everything in between from Ciadella's which cost me $2300.00. This package also included carpet for the rear area behind the back seat and sun-visors.

It will depend a lot on the materials you pick out. Vinyl verses real leather and everything in between. My interior ran $6K which included rebuilding the original seat frames, custom padding in the seats, custom door and side panels and painting some of the interior trim parts.

I paid $350 for each front and rear seat. Covered by the hides of a small herd of genuine Nauga's.

The problem with Nauga's is they are becoming harder and harder to find. Therefore the prices of the hides is increasing.

I heard the Naugas were becoming so rare, they are now on the endangered upholstery list.

Hello;
I have to say that the wierdest interiour I ever saw was the seats in a Honda covered with "Coach" material. (Coach purses)
I just visited a local shop here in orlando, the guy has been in business over 30 years. He is working on a 53 chevy and he said that after he gets it all done and installed the "customer" price would be about 5K!
