That is incredible for $2800. I paid a shop $750 for seam repairs on a 97 ProStar 190 and that was after three quotes, they were the cheapest. The estimate I got for the entire interior was going to be between $4500 and $5000. Texas sounds like to place to be for interiors.

Update

Wow, great feedback and questions on my topic. I wasn't expecting so much input.

So here's a quick status: I shipped my skins to a 3rd Party this week. Their quote was $1,700 + shipping (around $200 to ship the new skins + my originals). My local guy had previously quoted to install skins for $1,000. So I was looking around $2,700.

Then after I shipped the old skins my local guy (he owned a shop for many years, sold it and retired, but still does work out of his home shop) calls and says he'll do the whole boat including new skins for $3,500.

So now I'm deciding to forego the 3rd party skins and stay 100% local based on a lot of the input from this forum, especially not having to deal with finger pointing if there's problems.

FYI, shipping your boat from CA to TN runs from $600-$1000 EACH WAY!!!! Yikes. I looked into that option too, but it's a dead end.

I'll share photos when it's done in a few weeks. Wish me luck.

03PS209 - Nice looking redo. I might steal some of your details. Still wish I could find TX prices, but people here in CA apparently have way more coin than most and certainly don't have a DIY mentality. It's a perfect storm for these guys to charge what ever they want.

If this is still in process I would recommend adding some foam to the passenger seat base.. the one from the factory is pretty thin.
