    Default Cost to Reupholster 1 Bucket Seat

    I just finished removing all of the foam, vinyl and staples from my bucket seat to get it reupholstered. I called a shop and was told about $450 to recover the seat. Does this sound reasonable? Sounds awful high to me. I spent several hours removing all of those darned staples. Its from a 98 Mobius.

    I'm not terribly surprised. Yeah, you've done a lot of the work, but the driver's seat is the most complicated piece on the whole boat.

    I can't tell you what the seat spec's out at. My boat is a 23' XLV and has a lot of vinyl. I removed everything from the boat and was quoted with him removing all the staples but with me doing the reinstall in the boat. Quote was $3300 for everything. He said he spent a LOT of time on the driver's seat (but it came out badass).

    That does seem a bit high to me... Look around for Plan B. Depending on your colors you may get lucky.

    The years have been kind, it's the weekends that have done the damage.

    I just brought all the parts for new upholstery, 23 pcs, the seat counted as two and was quoted $3200. The foam seemed to still be good. I think it is the fact of them having to cut new foam. I took out the striping in the original design and asked if he could add some more foam on the parts your legs fold over to give it a little more detail and not seem so plain and he acted as if he didn't even hear me. lol Yes, I think it is the foam added to the upholstery.

    If you have the foam intact and viynl it may be cheaper. I use the old viynl/foam as templates. You need to shop around and get an in person estimate. Probably 350ish.

    I just had my interior done and most shops in the Phoenix area would charge about that price. Only one shop I visited was dirt cheap but I didn’t get a warm fuzzy feeling they were using good materials.
