I don't have a recommendation for local installer there, but I have been looking for some old worn/damaged leather seat covers. I would be interested in yours.

Same problem here .... ::)
Not easy to source....
At least I have got good usable door panels now.
Those will replace the "new ones" soon.

Let me dig a bit.  I was recommended a shop to do work on my employers Aston Martin. I looked them up and was floored.  I’ll find it.

Found it.  I called the dealer to see about buying some new interior pieces and he said, "We just send everything to Coachtrim.  They do nicer work than the factory."

See my other post today on hubcap painting. Automotive Restorations in Stratford CT. A bit out of the city but worth a call.
