If you were doing an 85 MC I would say knock your socks off. Easy,breezy,japanesey. Just a bunch of square shapes. Newer boats have alot of wrap around bolsters,pleats and curves. Lots of streching,pulling,steaming, etc. I restored an 04' LXi and farmed out all the tough pieces and glad I did. Unfortunately I did go thru one upholsterer before I found a good one. First guy did the wrap around back seat, came back with some wrinkles he refused to fix, the next guy was a local latino, didn't speak a lick of english. Fixed the back seat and did all the other complicated stuff. I did all the straight up square stuff; rear trunk, motor box and all seating cushions. Do you have any local guys you can feel out?
