1965 Impala SS Complete Reupholstery

Hello,

I'm looking to completely redo the interior of my 1965 Impala SS. I've gotten 2 estimates on all of the pre-assembled interior components, but would like to know what is typical for the installation. What have you all typically spent on the installation of a complete interior?

Prices will vary wildly as you go across the country. In the sunny deep south were people have been working for centuries for low wages you can get it done for a lot less than you would pay a shop in Brooklyn or Pasadena for the same work. Of course if you lived in Brooklyn or Pasadena you would require higher wages to meet your higher cost of living so you still are going to pay the same percentage of your salary to get the work done.

I would say that most have done all this themselves. It is not too hard. You might go to an upholstery shop and look at the guys there. If they all look to be a lot smarter than you then let them do it.

Thanks! I got some pretty decent quotes, but I've decided to just hold off on the interior until after I graduate.
