Hello All,

I recently reupholstered my Weber Seats.  Both the fabric and the sheepskin were pretty worn in the original seats.  I investigated getting them redone in Sheepskin, but the price was way too high.  I decided to go with a high quality auto upholstery material that was a good texture/color match.

I used the existing Upper Back cushion fabric, since it was in fairly good condition.  In any case, both seats are restored.  The feel in the seat is a bit less soft vs. the previous sheepskin, but not significant.  In fact, it transfers the ButtKicker vibration better.   Total cost for the upholstery was $750.  This upgrade, along with the new J-Rail Rollers, completes this part of my Sim Project.

Full-scale 737-800 Sim; P3d v4.5x with Sim-Avionics (two computers), FDS MIP,  FlightIllusion hardware.  3-Optoma ZH406ST Laser HD projectors, with 4K inputs from a single Nvidia RTX-3090 GPU, resulting in a 210 deg wrap-around display.  6dof Motion Platform using BFF 6dof motion software, driven by a Thanos Servo Controller to 6.2 KW Servos, Lever type actuators.

my preference webber better than Ipecos as I am old and like comfort even though in sim I have ipecos electric


Mike, did you check out Omnavia for the sheepskin?  I bought sheepskin for my Webers from them at what I thought was quite a reasonable price.  About $10/sq ft.  Also bought Boeing fabric from them, again, for quite reasonable.  Plus, they have been a great company to work with.



Confirming !
Bought OEM fabric from them!



I bought fabric from them as well.  Great company
