    Upholsterer wanted! (in brisbane)

    Anyone recommend or know of a good upholsterer on the south side of Brisbane?
    I have been to one in Browns Plains, and they have given me the run around, sent me to 2 other ppl, one a workshop another a mobile guy, and both can't do the job.
    I need the leather replaced on the drivers seat, on the right side arm bit.
    Have been told to either fix it, or get car seat covers. Can I get decent car seat covers that fit an S16? Without taking out another personal loan?
    Thanks

    Gem, my original S16 seat whent soft there too, much wear from getting in and out.
    You might have to take the seat out, (im sure your man can assist), and then take it to an Auto-Trimmer, look in the yellow pages.
    If not, i always found in my older cars, Stratos seat covers from Auto-barn etc, fitted tight and properly looked half decent, please don't get sheep wool or anything too gauntly. cheers - chris

    Gem,

    When I was in the car business, the most efficient and fair priced auto trimmer in Brisbane was Jobsons at Dutton Park.
    Almost every car dealer used them for everything from seat covers to warranty on new cars.
    We used to get them to do our work even though we were in Ipswich, that's how good their prices were & the quality was tops. We had them do everything from Trucks to Mercs.
    They've shifted now but to my knowledge are still the same people.
    Here's their details from the white pages:

    JOBSON'S AUTO UPHOLSTERERS
    Motor Trimmers 14 Young St Annerley 4103 (07) 3393 0934

    They should sort things out for you orright.

    Alan S cheers!
    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Thanks for the replies, I will try the place at Annerly.

    Good to know that it has happened to you too Chris, I thought I was the only gimp who finds that I have to launch myself, into a kinda roll, to get out of the car.
