    I did my own. Man was it a process but a couple of cases of beer later and it turned out great.

    Remind me- you stripped all the covers and resewed yourself or had them done? It does look sharp.

    That it does. I had that gator grip on my platform on the Outback. Very comfy. How is it to keep clean?

    Yeah it was definitely buy a sewing machine and figure it out. In reality it was not bad you just have to be patient. Pulling staples was the biggest pain by far.

    I love the Gator Grip. I have to finish the ski locker door and the bow but it is so much nicer then carpet. I have a semi-stiff bristle brush that I use with mild soap to clean it. It isn't the easiest but it is easier then taking the carpet out all the time.

    Any tips on the 'buy a sewing machine and figure it out'? I'm just about to undertake a similar project for both vinyl and carpet. Where'd you buy material from?

    Thanks.

    I don't get why you would spend that kind of money and not spend a little more to have it oem.

    I got Keyston vinyl from Perfect Fit. Mine was a Supra flagship model at the time it was made and boasted top of the line 40oz vinyl, the Keyston was much higher quality. I got my carpet from perfect fit too but next time I will get Corinthian.

    Jake is the man to talk to lol.

    These guys are where I got my samples from.

    Sewing machine was a mid line walmart special. Looking back I wish that I would have found a unit on craigslist specific for upholstery but this one still works.

    When I bought my boat in 2002 there was two things that people had issues with, upholstery and the boat covers. Over the years, I have replaced my vinyl except for the engine seat which is cracking and aftermarket is much better quality. So I would rather use a local upholster to change the vinyl out and I never would go with oem.

    sorry, forgot to add the quote. I was referring to guys going plain pattern instead of the color patterns.
