Dashboard Restoration Qwestion

So Just added a 944T to the barn, like my 930 wasn't enough.
Need to restore the dash. I called "Just Dashboards" in cal.
They want 1400 bucks and 8 to 10 week turn around. Is this the going price. Any thoughts?

NO EFFING WAY.

Call Bob Budd of Classic 9 leather Restorations. $550 in new leather. Will come back looking like a brand new dash.

My was badly warped at the defroster vent. Top notch quality. Was about a 1-week turnaround on the dash pad.

Great guy. He did my complete interior, changing from two-tone champagne/black to all black.

Here's a picture of the interior. I need a better "before" picture, but you can see the dash pad had lifted to the point that there was no seam along the top:

Our host also offers recovering kits in domestic and German vinyl, or cow skin. $160-$200 for the vinyl and just shy of $500 for the cow. Do-it-yourself, if you have the experience or pay Classic Leather folks who will do leather for $600 and vinyl for $550.

+1 for Classic 9.
I've known Bob since before he started his business. He's a straight shooter who does excellent work.

Any thoughts on how difficult it is to do it myself. I have done a full leather replacement a Mustang from catskin that was a piece of cake, just wondering about the gluing and such.

The trick is getting the seams right on the dash pad. Even Bob mentioned the design of the dash in the 911 makes it very difficult to keep the seams creased well over time. Honestly for $550 that he charges to recover it, I would utilize the skills of a man who does this for a living.

Besides, you'll get plenty of DIY time taking the dash pad out. It's not like it's a piece of cake to do...

Chris.
