$1200 bucks? That included materials and everything? High end materials?

I just spoke with my local upholstery shop.. initially we talked about me taking all the interior components out and bring them to their shop. So the price of $3500 means I still have to do a lot labor on my own...

Well after I confronted them with the price quote of $3500 bucks.. they quickly changed their tune and said they would do ALL the labor.. just bring them the boat.....hmmph.. getting annoyed with them..

I may just be giving Viper a call...

$3500 bucks for a 19ft CB boat is ridiculous...IMHO...

I had him match the original colors and material as close as possible for my 99'. Wanted to keep as close to oem as possible. Interior was getting dried out and cracking on high traffic areas.

I met him at the Minneapolis boat show in 2012.

He primarly does boat covers in the summer, upholstery during the winter.

I had him make me a new cover last spring to accomodate my New Dimension tower. Went back with 90% of my interior upholstery this winter.

I paid around 2200 for complete skins with 13' carbon fiber materials for an x9. Did the work myself. Not a really hard job esp in a closed bow I would think.

I had my complete 83 S&S interior redone for $1,000. All seats (including rear bench), side rails, and motorbox. No carpet replacement however. Paid cash money to a local establishment in the hispanic part of town. Those guys like cash, and do a great job.

What the heck...? These prices are all soo low... What are the material costs?

I live in Western Michigan and the local shop told me that $3500 was the market prices for the area. It sounds like me they are a little whack compared to market prices around the nation.

TxsRiverRat,

I see that you even got extra colored beeding on the seams... that kind of custom work would cost me extra...

Did you do the work yourself?

All we did was remove the upholstery. The lady re-did it, and did the piping by hand (her recommendation)... And we re-installed it.

I live in southern California and I am in the middle of restoring my 1984 S&S. There's a guy right down the street from me who came highly recommended. $2800 cash for interior and carpet. Only thing that was salvaged was the fiberglass engine hatch and driver seat...
