Leather Repair shop?

I remember seeing similar thread but couldn't dig up anything via search.

Anyways, one of my friend just did this to my passenger seat.


I'm planning to take it to the shop for a repair after killing my buddy first.

Any leather seat repair shop recommendation?

I think reupholster will cost more than getting a car from a wrecker.. depends on the car model of course.

Judging from the perforated leather with the white piping, i somehow doubt you'll find a match in a junkyard...

I have no idea on the subject, but I've seen leather seats with much more serious damage than that being fixed with no reupholstering whatsoever. I think they would just wetsand with really fine sandpaper and re-dye the area?

A guy named Benny does leather repair for many bodyshops and dealers in Richmond. I don't know about now but I'm pretty sure he was with Fibrenew years ago. You should be able to reach him at 604-761-1019.

+1 for Sean at VLC repairs. He does the work for my shop, and I can vouch for his work.

Only had experience with Pacific Auto Trim through my old work. Customers and my bosses were happy with their work
