I understand what Max saying, but if it's after 2 years and it's a vehicle being used regularly that's expected, gonna have some pulling and stretching over time. If he did the cross stitching (diamond pattern) that looks pretty neat

Ok well it sounds like you guys are satisfied with how it looks after only 2 years.

The stitching is sheit and had he done it correctly the first time it wont look so bad with regular use. But he have no excuse for the crooked stitching.

But anyways, famous words:

“Dai small ting”,
“nobody seein dat”
“dat lil ting?”
“Yuh does get dat”
“Minor ting”

But the money correct though.

No beef with you fine folks eh, i jus dont like what i see and what is unacceptable to me may be the normz for others.

Guy's name was Sean (in the east) and he handled upholstering for Maxis etc. Dude sourced the exact fabric and colour. He did some bolster foam replacement and reshaping as well. Wouldn't be able to tell that it was reupholstered by looking at it.

This is work done by Rishi of Munroe Rd on my seats after reading these threads. Not too bad, however not perfect either. $1700 for both front seats. He came highly recommended but IMHO seams could have been better especially after the big game he talks when you meet him.

Yuh understand. Not saying it bad, but could have been better.

Could not find any better in my area as pics of their work were much worse. Most people i spoke to recommended this guy.

I'll post a chair later, my uncle rell rate up this guy who redid some office chairs for him, so I sent one of Mines to be recovered.

Horrible job. The chair came back with a lean, the hand rest one side is curved like original and the next side is rectangular.

I think Mikey passed recently, but I guess the boys there still working. Excellent work though.
