Mastercraftseatskins.com heard of them?

I just saw this website online and had never heard of them or seen them in my prior searches. Looking at the website and talking with one of the head guys it sounds like they order the old material and have it special ordered? Looking at the pictures it looks very close. Has anyone used them? He said the website is new but they have been doing this for a while.

My observer seat has the typical 197 tear in the high stress spot and instead of waiting to do a full redo I may give them a shot but certainly want opinions. It sounds like he does most of the work for dealers in Texas.

Also saw the site and was curious any feedback. Looks legit but not sure I want to commit remotely.

Nothing on sites indicate they are licensed. Looks like a specialty marine interior company.

The rear seat cushion (bottom) on my PS205 was getting pretty rough. Last February I contacted Viper Customs in TN. I was going to just send in the the old vinyl and have them make a skin but opted to UPS the entire bench cushion as it was pretty easy to ship. They matched the 26y/o vinyl really well and the workmanship was top-notch. Good communication and I got it back in late March. Might give them a call and see what your options are......

I'd take a real close look in their gallery at the X45. There is a lot of puckering and some badly misaligned seams/beads.

Also of note: They may not be making MC logos and what not. This has to do with the company going public. I would ask this as well.

I had a completely opposite experience with them last spring, I'm glad yours was better but I personally wouldn't recommend viper to anyone. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.
