Auto Upholstery Seattle, Car Seat Repair & New Foam For Car Seat
"You did a superb job on our old Impreza WRX wagon. Soundproofed and new leather seat covers. A trusty and fun old car now feels a lot better than it did when it was new. Seats are way more comfortable. It feels more solidly built, as well as way quieter. Drives like a WRX, rides like a Mercedes." — James M.

Our standard leather kits match manufacturer designs. You can also customize colors, stitching patterns and other design elements.

After Seat Repair
Compare the front seat from a Subaru Outback before and after it was reupholstered (above). In addition to foam repair, the seats were upholstered in brand new leather. What a difference!
Reupholstering your car seat or truck interior makes even more sense when you consider the cost of buying a new vehicle. Instead of buying a new pickup, the owner of this Ford F-150 (below) had brand new carpeting and leather upholstery installed. As a bonus, we custom-fitted a pair of adjustable seat heaters for twenty percent less than it would have cost without the new upholstery.

Count on Mac's to professionally install Jeep tops, tonneau covers, seat covers, weather stripping, leather steering wheel covers, door panels, reproduction seat covers, leather kits and armrests for your car, truck, sports utility vehicle, or recreational vehicle.
A snug fit is especially important because when seat covers are properly sized, they protect the original upholstery and extend the lifespan of the seat. A vehicle with spotless upholstery retains its value far better than a car or truck with a trashed interior. Quality seat covers easily pay for themselves by boosting a vehicle's value on the resale market.
Some automotive seat covers are designed to stand out from the crowd. Katzkin® and Ruff Tuff®, for example, specialize in distinctive, customize-designed seat covers.
Gahh Automotive is the expert in "original look" seat covers. They manufacture seat covers to strict OEM specifications. Not only do their covers look like the original ones, they carefully match fabrics, colors and styles.
Best of all, Gahh seat covers often cost half as much as brand name covers. You can order one from the company's website, but for the same price we'll do the work. We'll make sure the correct seat cover is delivered on time. Installation is extra.
Protect your car & truck seats with plush, genuine sheepskin seat covers. They keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Mac's sells both tailor-made and universal-fit sheepskin seat covers. They fit like a glove and provide years of comfort.

Facelift For An Old-Timer
Jeep Commando Convertibles from the 1960s are hard to find. A vintage Commando that looks great and runs well, is a collector's dream. Instead of saving it for an occasional Sunday afternoon drive, the owner of this cherry red Commando wants to enjoy it.
It's hard to improve on a classic, but after repairing one of the leather seats, we suggested soundproofing, new door panels and a carpet upgrade.

Ready For Action
You'd be amazed at the improvement a little inexpensive soundproofing can make in a noisy, older vehicle such as a Jeep Commando. After blanketing the floor with silver Dexdamp sound dampening panels, we added a sheet of polyurethane, then covered the two layers in jute padding. With the soundproofing in place, we topped it off with heavy duty carpeting.
The soundproofing and carpet turned out great! Best of all, this vintage Jeep Commando looks the same as it did before the work; something a car collector truly appreciates.
Inflatable Lumbar Supports
Chronic lower back pain is a problem for millions. The American Chiropractic Association estimates something like 31 million Americans suffer from lower back pain. Federally mandated auto safety requirements may be making things worse. Car makers are now required to position head restraints closer to the occupant. Many find the new design so uncomfortable they tip their seat back, which further stresses the lower back.
If you suffer lower back pain when driving, our adjustable lumbar support can help.

Hand Pump Easily Inflates Bladder
Seats Installed With Lumber Support
Easily Accessible Hand Pump
You could spend hundreds of dollars on an electronic lumbar support system, but we think there's a better way. This simple, manually inflatable lumbar pad is inexpensive and reliable. Installed under the seat cover, the heavy-duty polypropylene bladder is inflated using a simple hand pump. Even fully dilated, the lumbar pad is all but invisible. Best of all, adjusting the pad for maximum comfort is as easy as squeezing a rubber ball.
The pads come in three sizes. Give us a call for installation options, or purchase one from our online store.
We've seen plenty of dog damage over the years, but this one takes the cake. It's possible that Cujo didn't appreciate being locked inside the car, but we're betting it simply mistook the back seat as a chew toy. A really expensive chew toy. Can you imagine the owner's expression when he saw this?
After Seat Repair
Good As New
Door Panel Repaired
Needless to say, repairing this Audi A4 required more than an OEM seat cover. We had to rebuild sections of the back bench seat, armrest and side panel. Instead of ordering and installing an expensive new cover, we replaced the damaged vinyl section-by-section. Not only is this sort of custom seat repair more environmentally friendly than a brand new cover, it's significantly less expensive. In fact, the owner could buy a ton of real chew toys with the money we saved him.
Escape From Ordinary Interiors
Most new cars and SUVs are equipped with factory-installed cloth seat covers. They may be adequate for a while. But, even the most durable synthetic material used to manufacture automotive seats will lose its luster in no time -- especially if you've got kids or dogs.
This Ford Escape is only a couple of years old and already the seats are stained and worn. Instead of installing replacement cloth covers -- yawn -- the owners chose to upgrade to the luxury, comfort and durability of leather seats.

Comfort & Luxury
Having a car dealer install new leather seats can be expensive. Not only does Mac's charge substantially less, our experienced installers are the best in town. Keep in mind that experienced installers make a big difference; if your leather seat covers are not properly installed they'll wrinkle and warp.
We also offer the wide range of styles and colors available through Katzkin Leather, the leading manufacturer of aftermarket seat covers. Click here to check out all the exciting styles and colors available for your vehicle!
A SAAB Story
Almost every car has cosmetic quirks. For example, SAAB owners complain that door and speaker panel inserts manufactured during the eighties and nineties frequently unravel after a few years. Do-it-yourself fixes may last for a while, but the inserts are certain to unravel again unless the job is done properly. Some owners bring us their SAABs strictly to restore the side panel inserts. Others, such as the owner of this model 900 convertible, repair the inserts when they install a new top.
Panel Inserts Unraveling
Wrinkled Speaker Inserts
Worn Door Panel
Tattered Convertible Top
Old Top Removed
Attaching New Rear Curtain
New Convertible Top
Ebony Suede Fabric
New Side & Speaker Inserts
It's easy to match the original fabric used by the manufacturer, but owners often chose a more stylish alternative. In this case, we substitute a rich, ebony suede for the original tan fabric. Some interior surfaces are slightly cupped, which makes attaching the fabric a bit more challenging. Not only are these inserts flat, removing them from the side panel is relatively easy.
Because the reupholstery process is straightforward and because the car is already in the shop for other work, the customer saves money.
