Thumbs up Shadburn's Upholstery in Macon

Well my driver seat bottom cushion has been in some serious need of attention for quite awhile. I have been toying with the idea of a seat swap from some other vehicle or trying to find a set of stock OBS seats in tan. Only problem was that the only thing I could find was full sets of seats for $500+ on eBay. A buddy of mine had taken a seat pad to Shadburn's with good luck so I decided to give them a try. I am very pleased with the outcome. They basically made a whole new cover, a whole new foam insert, and rebuilt the support "net" underneath the foam. Here are some before pictures:

I took the seat apart myself and removed the lower pad from the seat back and the tracks, took it to Shadburn's last Friday, he told me it would be a few days so I had to take my passenger seat out, swap the tracks over to the driver side tracks and bolt it in to the driver side so I could have something to sit on. Haha. Got the seat back today (Wednesday), and bolted everything back together and installed it. The seat looks amazing and rides 1000 times better than the old seat. The inner rear fabric section is apparently a hard to find fabric that Shadburn's just happened to have a few feet laying around so I didn't have to pay extra to order the fabric. I paid $150 plus tax. If they didn't have the fabric laying around and had to order it, it would have come from a guy in Oregon who hand makes the fabric and sells it for around $100 a yard. But overall, I am very happy with the turnout, and figured I would share my experience on here!

And yes, I know the side plastic is missing. I'm gonna have to order it and the only way I've seen it so far is for a pair, with all the tubing for the air inflated lumbar support, for $100 on eBay

Just now saw this, I've always heard great things from them. I may swing by there and get a quote on something in the near future... are they still next door to Georgia Bob's?

Not sure if they were ever next to Georgia Bob's They're on Woodfield Dr, which is the same road Eagle Gun Range is on.
