It would be a few hrs worth of labor I'm sure. They'd have to take the leather seat covering off and take it apart and sew the new leather to the cover and re-install. So I'd say $100-200 for the job, maybe even more.

If I can recover two 280z seats in 3 hours you could do that yourself in 1. Find new material for it if it's cheaper than a seat and do it yourself. Not hard at all to do, can't believe some people get paid big for it. My parents had a couple 100yr old chairs recovered and it was like 800 bucks yo.

Those two chairs could have paid for my collage though...

Sadly that is very true, it is VERY expensive for this type of work. I've done a few things with leather interior tid bits but I don't have a strong enough machine to re-do my seats. And NOOOOOOBODY wants to see how bad my seats looks!
