Spyder seat reupholstering question??

Postby Dominic550 » Mon Dec 04, 2017 10:29 pm

Question...Does anyone know how many yards of fabric (vinyl) are needed to redo a pair of Spyder seats? I want to buy the correct vinyl before I bring it to a pro to get reupholstered.

Thanks,
Dominic

That's a great question. I'd ask the pro I was taking it to, after showing him/her the seats.

Most upholstery comes on a 54" roll so 1 yard is 36" x 54" I'd guess that 3 or 4 yards would be more than enough but take some measurements of the seats, front, back, sides and top of the back rest and the seat and skirts on the seat cushions and anywhere else you see. It should be relatively easy to determine how much material you'll need.

Thanks guys...I got in touch with SMS Auto Fabrics and they said 3 yards would be plenty to do both seats. They get $89 per yard for the Porsche Barber Pole Vinyl.

Here is a link to the site if anyone is interested in getting the correct material for their seats:

Thanks, Daniel. I ordered five yards or so from SMS back in January and have been waiting ever since. Hopefully they'll come through soon.
