Upholstry and wheel repair in South Bay?

Post by Runerhyme on Tue Jun 02, 2009 3:22 pm

Hey everyone!
The R will soon go on a trip, back to its home country. But before then, I'm going to fix it up a bit.

The seams on the leather seats have opened up, and needs to be sewn back together, or, some of the leather might need to be replaced. Does anyone know a place that can do that, who does not charge over the top?

The R rims (1995 T5R model) are also pretty beat up, and has plenty of curb rash and a few dents on them. Is that repairable?

It's shipping out in about two weeks, so I need to find something pretty fast.

Thanks! Smile

Hi Runerhyme,

When we were car shopping (for my mom's S70) we came across a number of cars that needed some work on the leather, so I asked some questions.

JRL, one of the members on Swedespeed, highly recommends the Fabrion company. He says they do amazing work and are reasonably priced. Here are a couple links:

Fabrion:

There are also videos and before/after pictures on the Fabrion site.

We were able to find a car with decent leather, so we have not contacted them yet...

Please keep us updated with your progress and let us know if you find someone good!

Good luck,
volvie!

Thanks. Will check them out asap! =)

Anyone know a place for wheel repairs? Does regular tire stores do that?
