I will be sending the seats fr

I will be sending the seats from our QV to Alden's Auto Trim in Kenner, Louisiana. One of the NO area Ferrari owners had his QV seats restored there and they did an awesome job. They even backed their work with a warranty. Should be sending them off early next week as I have been fighting the flu since Monday. Of course this means that I will not be able to drive her for 3-4 weeks. Ahhh!!! What will I do? Anyone have some spare seats they arent using? Or maybe I can fasten a 5 gallon bucket in there?


I will followup with before and after pics.

Jeremy,

When bolting on the 5 gallon bucket make sure you cut out the edge for your legs. I had a bad experience when I tried this last.

Here are the before pics of the driver's seat. I have decided to do one seat at a time. That way I can still drive her by moving the passenger seat over. No bucket issues!!!

I received the seat today from Alden's Auto Trim and......

It is AWESOME!!! He did a wonderful job and it really looks like a brand new seat. I can't believe it....WOW. I'll post some pics tonight so you guys can compare. And of course, I highly recommend Alden for quality leather work. Maybe we can add him on as a sponsor soon...

Hi John,

All said and done....$462.00. A bargain when you consider the quality of work and the $1300 price tag for original skins from Ferrari. Every piece of leather is new, and they even reproduced the stitching like the original seat. I am very happy with the results. I just finished installing the seat back into the car and it really looks awesome. Can't wait to send the passenger seat off so they will match. Then the door panels, center console.....I guess that's all the leather on the car. Alden really out did himself. I have seen another project he did on a 308 in New Orleans and it was awesome. It was just a condition and re-dye if my memory is working correctly, and it also looked like new.

HOLY SMOKES that's reasonable!

I've had quotes (and repairs) far far higher than that per seat. Wish I had known about this guy years ago!

Thanks for sharing this resourse Jeremy.

For that price it would be worth sending my seats from Washington State and I would still be ahead.

DJ,

It cost me $6 and change to ship UPS Ground insured for $1500 from Houston to NO. I took the seats apart before shipping to reduce the size and weight of the package. Of course I shipped from the office, taking advantage of the corporate discount.

Hi Albert. No, they did not. But, I never really got to see it that much anyway.
