107 Upholstery

Greeting Forum Members,

I posted this thread in the Fastlane Specials forum in error and I don't know how to transfer it.
I was asking for advice and suggestions from those who have had front seats reupholstered.
I'm considering having the front seats of my 1985 280sl done over with new pads and covers.
I've noticed a wide variation in price for what is claming to be the same product, leather upholstery in original Mercedes patterns and colors.
The Adsit company seems to have the best deal offering an interior package that includes upholstery for 2 front seats, door panels and carpeting at a fraction of the cost of the Gahh company's products.
Has anyone used either of their products?
How does the quality compare to each other and others?
Also any good upholsters in the Boston area?

Thanks,

Knarf

Gahh

My guy here who does most of the older Mercedes in town says GAHH only. Period. End of Discussion. They fit better. He did mine with GAHH and they are beautiful.

upholstery

I do complete upholstery and tops in New Jersey. I have used them all. Gahh is the best. Change the pads too. Germanex covers are way too tight!!!! Good luck ( call jack @ gahh for an installer in Boston area.
