^^+1 - installing upholstery is a somewhere between a skill and art. The guys like at Viper have true feel for what the skin is doing and can see in their minds eye ... like guys who install vehicle wraps...they only like one type of vinyl and laminate...cuz they know how it will behave. Also it depends where you are on the MCOCD scale...
