    Parrot,

    Have you figured out how much you have spent? Not including your time.

    I usually guesstimate around $1,000 for new foam and $500 to $700 for the vinyl, thread and all the little stuff.

    Looking good, cant wait to see the finished product.

    I can check, but for the lower seats in the main area I've spent around 160$ for the foam. I haven't checked the rear sun pad yet, that's probably $200ish, if you redid all the foam your probably in that $800-1000 range..

    For the vinyl that sounds about right, I over ordered my accent colors and redone several pieces. Probably in $600-$700 range..

    How did you decide / determine on what kind of foam and vinyl to order? I've heard some people say that some boats have "better" vinyl than others...

    I called Gary up and asked what he recommended, it's also one of the heaviest(37 oz) and more expensive..I didn't end up ordering from him though, the website is pretty crappy and he's located in Seattle? He has foam as well, I planned to get everything from there but I kept missing his hours..I found two places locally so I get it next day..

    For foam, on the seat bottoms, you want the heavier density foams, 2-3 lb/CF they use more material per unit of measure so they are more expensive. For seat backs use the 1-2 lb/CF foams

    Of course there is different thicknesses also.

    The 37 oz vinyl is pretty heavy (usually that is good) as long as it has the correct exposure and anti-microbial additives, it being made in the USA is a good sign.

    The stuff that I use is around 32-34 oz Vinyl.

    Good deal, thanks for the info guys.

    Also, parrothd, you may have mentioned it, but would be awesome if you could at some point put together a step by step "how to" thread. The more pics and/or videos the better. Maybe pick one seat back/bottom and show from start to finish. Tips, pitfalls, how to make the vinyl conform, remove wrinkles, how to do it right the first time, etc. It would make for a great sticky. I know I'll be tackling this sometime soon...
    Thanks again
    Steve
