Leather seat/dash recovers was created by Boulet
Im looking at recovering my leather seats and Dash while car is stripped apart. I've found one aftermarket dash cover but it seems to have a seem down the middle. I read a few horror stories about "just dashes" and they seem to cater more to America made cars. As for seats, I'm wondering who has recovered theirs and how is the quality? Has anyone used Jag (Garage 9)?

Thanks

I plan on having my seats done, and expect it will be either:
www.928leather.com/
www.designpaulchampagne.com/

Both are 928 owners and come highly recommended.

I bought pre-made leather seat covers from 928 Specialists many years ago. They were a great match and looked spectacular. My mechanic installed them and informed me he "would never do that again!" Apparently they were a PITA to install and he could not charge me as much as he needed to for the work. He just didn't feel right about it. It took MANY, MANY hours per seat to get them right! They were $995 at the time. I think he charged me just south of $500 for the install, but if he billed straight hours it would have cost more than the covers!!!

I am not sure if these same covers are even available anymore...

For Dashes you need to talk to Rob Budd or Paul Champagne as noted by Stan. Both to amazing work! They can do your seats too...

When you say recover, do you mean to have someone else do it or do it yourself with a kit? Paul Champagne no longer supplies kits, but Robert Budd does.

I've recovered my dash myself with a kit from Rob Budd that I was very pleased with. I had two of the seats repaired by a local upholstery shop - mostly just replacing some panels and piping.

I have a complete interior from Robert Budd, got it at a great price from someone who sold their car and the new owner did not want it. It looks great and I am going to get someone to install it.
I met Robert as well recently and seemed liked a stand-up guy and was really interested in making sure I would be happy with it.

Good Luck
