i read a post from a while back..... http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/58045.html
this talks about ordering vinyl by the sq yard instead of a skin. well, the back hatch of the sunpad on my '02 xstar needs to be replaced.
i was quoted approximately
$330 for a whole new cushion
$225 for a skin (not including labor to sew it on)
26 / sq. yard from one dealer
18 / sq. yard from another dealer
now, i dont know where bradley beach was able to find it for $8 a sq. yard, but either way, do you think a shop will do a decent job at putting stitches and/or seams in the vinyl? the only stitching or seams that need to be made will be on the underside of the cushion.
should i spend about $100 in labor and material and get it done? or just order the skin and pay about $300 to get it done?
those that have tried this before, how did it turn out?
