    Hell no. It's a pain in the ass. One thing that's worth paying someone to do. Cost me 400 to have them done but as with all painters ,platers, powder, chromers etc. He blew his deadline. Quoted 2 weeks and it took 3.5 months and a threat to get my seats back. It's hard to find good shops these days. When you do find one you stick with them . I would much rather pay more for quality work and reliability then save a buck any day.

    Upholstery work is a PITA...

    Did you get any pics of the foam after steaming? I've been curious ever since I heard of it.
    VIN 4728 is waiting for Spring, a new exhaust, and a Peugeot manifold.

    Wife ordered me a N.O.S. rear fascia from DMC through Midwest. Pretty stoked.
