Where to get car upholstery fixed?

car steering wheelMike emails:

I just acquired an older car with rips in the driver's seat. Is there anywhere local that can redo the seats and save me the expense and trouble of finding/buying good used ones?

Considering how many cars there are, we figure there's usually a place/way for fix almost everything on them. (Whether it's cost effective is another question...) So we're curious to hear people's thoughts on the best way to go about this.

Got a suggestion for Mike? Please share! And if you're recommending a specific repair place, bonus points for a sentence or two about why you're mentioning that place.

George's Auto Glass/Upholstery, 141 Troy Schen Rd., Watervliet. Has been in business for many years. Always excellent work and reasonable price.

I had a car get leather seat covers (car came with cloth) and after installation the car looked like it came with them - very professional work.

Will happily second the recommendation of George's for the same reasons. Very happy with work.

My father got seats for his Ford Ranger done here.
They were very well done.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
