I agree – like paint, capping is immediately visible and pieces like those S-shaped ones running up from the B-post require great skills to get right.  I too have used Larry Learn, but he retired last year.  He gave a lot of his stuff to a young guy who has started an upholstery business a few miles away.  Larry tells me he is good, but is not familiar with car work.  If you do call that number you will get a message saying it has been changed and you will get the number of the young guy.

I outsourced mine.  I had never done this before and will likely never do this again so rather than buy several sets of leather so I can do it wrong a few times I figured it was just cheaper and easier to hire it done.  I used Larry Learn Upholstery (724 465 8661)
