    Looking for trim shop recommendations - need seats redone, willing to travel a bit (New England/NY) for someone who does good work, price not as important as quality of work.

    How high end do you want to go?

    Show quality plus?

    Columbia ASC in Lawrence MA does restoration level work... I had a claim in there for a 1928 ford with rodent damage, you should have seen the car when it was finished it was PERFECT

    Just east of Zone 9, but in Worcester County.
    place in Shrewsbury on Rt 20 near the Worcester line. New England Trim I think. Did my motorcycle seat rebuild. Looks stock as it still has the factory cover, but 100% completely rebuilt underneath with multiple density foam and a gel pad. Was very reasonable too. Small shop, so you talk to the guy doing the work.

    I've used two shops.

    Ayer Auto Trim in Ayer (Roger) did my old boat seats and I was happy with the work.

    Lowell Auto Seat Cover (pack) has done a few projects and his work was also very nice. I don't know if he's still in business anymore. It's been a few years.

    I had good luck with AutoPaint RI in Cranston, off of 295 + 14. They refinished a Jaguar XJ6 I owned:

    +1 for New England Trim in Shrewsbury. I've seen their work on boat upholstery repairs and new work and it's top notch.

    Been restoring cars for a little over 30 years.
    As stated before Sal at Columbia does a great job at a reasonable price. Great value.

    If price is of absolutely no concern then I know a few of those guys as well but unless it's a Ferarri or some 1 off classic you probably don't need their skill level.

    Columbia Seat Covers. I did their Auto glass work and saw some amazing workmanship over the years.
    I was just there a few months ago for myself and as usual quality work.

    There are at least 100 shops in NE that do this, so without location it’s kind of pointless.
