New Member with a question about seats

Hi all, My husband and I just bought Willie Mays' 1976 450sl. Not from him of course, but from a phenomenal engineer who kept it in the original ,mint condition, and added several little plusses of his own, but didn't encroach on the integrity of the car. We love it!
The only thing it needs is to have the seats recovered, and we'd like to have it done in as close to (if not) the original material as possible. We live in the San Francisco Bay area.
Does anyone know of a reasonable shop that does this kind of work in the area?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

The Mercedes classic center is somewhere in southern California. If you don't get a quick answer here I would contact them for a referral. Or scroll down to the roadster section, find your chassis, and either search or ask there. Congratulations and welcome to the forum.
