Default Center Console vinyl cover replacement

Just what the topic says... I was wondering if anyone has found a solution to replace or repair the vinyl on the middle seat back.. or center console armrest as I use it for. I was thinking about removing it and taking it in to see if an up-holstry repair place can replace it with a nice leather piece instead? Has anyone done this before? Or have any suggestions?

That is exactly what I did. I had mine re-upholstered by my local Upholstery shop. Cost me 40 dollars. And it was well worth it

jbryan2, was your shop able to match the color and texture of the original vinyl cover?

Thanks! HKW

I use an auto upholstery shop quite often
If the owner doesn't have what i have needed in the past, he figures out how much material that i need & if it something that would sell more of, he just calls in an order & within a week he calls me back to make an appt
My guy does Classic cars & hot rods, he always has a waiting list
He also owns a Ram

Thanks! There's a shop nearby that has been in business for a long time. I'll check them out.
