World Upholstery Discount? Alternative Leather Supplier?
I'm about to order a new 268 Red Leather interior for my '73 Coupe. I had a supplier offer a discount for GAHH, but when I got the color sample, it was the wrong red. A more pink/lipstick 269 Red Pebble with a larger grain than 268.
Turns out World Upholstery can make the correct red. Was quoted $1875.00 for front seats, headrests, back panels, and armrest in leather. $1710.00 for the rear seat. After labor, it would be a $4000.00+ interior redo. Wondering if there is a known discount rate through them or anything like that.
Posted the same at PeachParts, heard some negative things about GermanAutoTops.com. They offered a competitive price, I'll be checking their shop out first week of February when I move back to Orange County.
If anyone knows of a different supplier that could make 268 Red at a competitive price, please let me know!
