Auto Upholstery

I am on the fence on either getting my seat upholstery redo with Gel or order online a full cut gel seat. But want to see any good recommendation on upholstery shop where I compare prices. Thanks for your inputs.

I ordered custom seat covers from sweet seats on eBay and did it myself. It was easy and cheap, did both seats for 110 bucks!

I'm actually thinking about doing the same thing on my bike, replace the low foam with higher density and maybe gel, but shaped to my 'curves'. Did you do any of that, or just stretch and staple a new cover in place of an old?

Thanks

I removed the old cover added the gel seat on the front one and stretched and stapled it on. Simple and cheap.
