e30 reupholstery kits

My front seats (cloth) are in great shape apart from the seat cloth breaking down and splitting.

Where can I buy a reupholstery kit? I see World Upholstery & Trim in the States sells them, but I'd prefer closer.

And, any good installers in GTA?

Tnx

If you can get the upholstry you can do it yourself, its pretty simple. Its essentially removing pieces of copper and pulling it off like a shirt, then reverse.

Problem is, the upholstry kits cost only a few bucks cheaper than having someone local do it for you.

Well that sucks, like someone said on bimmerforums about the same thing, just get a set of e36 seats and shove em in.
