    I have a VK commodore, bought very recently which looks and drives amazingly! unfortunatly the interior needs a bit of work. I live in NSW is there anyone who specialises in interiors thats not to expensive and does a good job?

    either one or the other dude
    Do you want cheap

    or

    Do you want a good job?

    Its not only the finished product but lots of work goes intot he right job, when my VK was done we did new door cards on the door trims, ALL velour was backed with fabric or vinyl so the end result is it is better than factory and barring any damage will outlast the car.

    Mine was done in tamworth by a friend who is a trimmer and I couldnt reccommend him more highly, there is a guy on the coast thats good and I can also recommend him, there are bound to be guys in sydney as well.

    Depending on how handy you are. Proseat on ebay makes the replacement leather seat covers. They're still around $600 for front and back which isn't too bad. Not sure how hard it is to re-upholster the VK seats yourself though. I've only done the VS ones myself.

    Thanks for all the comments guys

    Im not to sure i what i want to do with the interior i was leaning towards reupholstering it with the stock VK interior, just to keep it looking stock, But then again something different might look good. Money isnt a problem at all. Id very much rather the job be done properly and pay for it than done cheaply. @Vkberlina if you could send me some information and some pictures of your car (if you have them) that would be much appreciated. @mainpath if you could post the details that would be great.
