So I'm thinking of fixing up the 2 seats that came in the Econoline. Like totally restuff & recover them - they're not too bad looking, but they have practically zero cushion in them.

Who's done this and what did it run you $ ? I'm just looking to put new foam in the bottoms at minimum and reupholster them totally, probably in some budget black vinyl/fake leather.

The two I had done for the QAR cost me $600 at the local upholstery shop. IIRC the marine vinyl I went for was around $25/yard. They had to replace a little foam in mine, but not much.

Are you sewing your own covers?

I bet you could get a hook up on Craigslist with an upholster taking on side jobs.

I can sew pretty good, and I'm man enough to say that, but I'm not going to even try doing my own covers. I took them to an upholstery shop which is re-doing them for a reasonable price (for my area), so they should be done in a couple of weeks. I'll just flip the Starcraft seats I dyed a while ago, they just didn't get black enough for me, and wouldn't really look right in the van.

Before pic for posterity

OH YEAH! I love new upholstery. Can't wait to see how they turn out.

Those seats look comfortable. Definitely post the pics when they come back.
