If your seat is leaning back too much, is twisted, or is wobbly, chances are
your seat frame is cracked. This is both uncomfortable and dangerous. If this
is the case, we can remove the upholstery and foam, then reweld and reinforce
Sometimes it is even the manual or power base under the seat which is
cracked and causing the excessive play in the seat. These bases can also
be replaced or repaired, as can the electric functions of the power bases.
Like upholstery, seat padding also degrades over time, often leading to discomfort.
Many times, people feel like they're sitting in a hole because the bttom cushion
has sunken in so much. If the padding is totally shot, we can replace it. If
it is not that bad, we can regenerate it and supplement it, thus building it
back up again. Naturally, the best time to renew the padding is when we are
already taking the seats apart to do upholstery work.
If you have a newer car, you may have found that the seats are giving
you an unexpected pain in the back. If you traded the car back in to the
dealer you would lose thousands of dollars. If this is the case, we can
alter the firmness, shape and support of the seat to make you more comfortable.
The original upholstery can either be reused as is, or altered to fit the
modified shape of the padding.
Experiencing lower back pain while driving is a common problem. If the pressure
in your back is too great, we can reduce your seat’s lumbar area. If you
need more support, we can add to your seat’s lumbar area. Lumbar supports
are available as additional fixed foam, manually inflatable air bags, or factory
style electrically inflatable air bags. These lumbar support options are all
installed under your upholstery so they are not visible, and can be retrofit
to any seat.
Heat is therapeatic and feels awfully good on cold days. Seat heaters can also
be retrofit into any seat. They are hidden under the upholstery and wired directly
into the fuse box. Factory style control buttons are installed, usually in
the lower side of the seat housing, allowing for high, medium, and low self
regulating settings. And just in case you forget to turn it off, the seat heaters
will shut off with your ignition.
Just as seat heaters warm you up on cold days, a seat ventilation system will
help cool you down on hot days. We actually install fans under the foam and
upholstery which circulate the heat out of the seat and away from your body.
Everyone loves a back massage. Now you can get one in your car! For the ultimate
in comfort, especially for those with back problems, we can install massage
units under your foam and upholstery. This gentle, soothing massage will help
wisk away most back pain associated with long rides in the car.
