Worn front seats....REPAIR possible?

A coach I'm looking at has piping on the leading edge of both front seats, and that piping is worn. Looks shabby on a coach of this price.

Does anybody know of an upholsterer that could remove the seat leather and replace the piping? Hate to think that a new seat for $1700 is the only option, so please let me know the proper fix.

We had worn leather driver and passenger seats in our Discovery. Looked under the seat and found the Steelcase build spec sheet. Called Steelcase and ordered the proper ultra leather replacement seat covers. Took the old covers off and put the new covers on. Not too easy to do, but got it done. That was three years ago. All is ok.
Regards,
JimB

Factory covers.....even better. Thanks!

In case the factory covers are NLA, does anybody know a shop that does leather upholstery?

If the piping is physically worn with pieces missing or tears I'm not much help, but if the leather coloring is worn off or discolored, you can make it look like new with leather and vinyl spray paint, comes in many colors. We had a worn area on our sofa and you can't even tell where we sprayed it.

For small wear areas, you could try http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o00_s00

Simple job for an auto upholstery shop to recover. Really not much different than a van with captain's chairs. Even a residental furniture repair shop can do the work. In this case think of the chairs as a recliner or desk chair. Best if you can pull and delivery. I'm planning on having mine coach redone this winter and have talked with a few shops in my area. Couldn't give me an estimate unseen but all of them said no problem. I'm think maybe micro fiber rather than leather.
