Thanks for that. I think they did some rebuilding and repairing, but didn't
replace everything. That's why I decided to let an upholsterer do the instl
- I'd have no idea how to rebuild or repair the padding.
Come to think of it, all the reupholster jobs I've seen haven't looked as
good as OEM. But maybe, that's just like with hair pieces; you only notice
the bad ones.
