Default How much $ would you pay?

so my buddy's dad does upholestry and i told him i was re-doing my interior. i asked him what i would be lookin at to get the headliner, floor, visors, and seats done (everything black except i want some red in the seats) and he said around $650 lol. i thought that was a bit much so i figured i would get your opinions. the funny thing is he said the headliner would only be 65 bucks.... where the hell does all the other money come from then lol?? so i may just buy new seats. thoughts???

I think it's reasonable. I had a quote for a reputable upholstery shop to do just a bench seat in a '54 F100 w/ an embroidered Ford logo and it was like $450... for all your talking about having done and it being custom it sounds like it's on point. If you don't like the price start hitting ebay/yards and tell me you can get all that for less. Remember... I'm assuming that includes installation... that means gutting your entire truck, measuring, cutting, and sewing the appropriate pieces, then re-installing EVERYTHING...

you can redo your headliner yourself for the cost of material and a couple cans of spray adhesive, and the shit gets you dizzy to boot haha

sounds really cheap. we charge $85 to do a standard cab truck headliner, $150ish for a molded carpet, another $75-100 to install. seats, i charge $150-200 per bucket plus materials. visors run $15-25 each depending if they are tuck or sewn. you are getting a hell of a deal.

Is there any of it you can do without? like maybe track down visors from a yard that would match? carpet too... you could clean yours really well?

its hard to find parts for my truck at yards cause its a 2004 and most of them are still on the road. at least around here. but i really really want my interior blacked out so i need all of it done. plus i have already gone through too much trouble painting all the plastic black to not go all the way now. and i didnt think the visors came in a black factory did they?
