Default Reupholstering A Formula 242LS Engine Hatch?

About how much should it cost to reupholster the engine hatch on a 1988 Formula 242 LS. The foam and bases are all in good shape. Sections were removed from fiberglass so they just need to be recovered. Its red black white and grey comes in 5 sections. A good job with stainless staples and marine vinyl. Thanks.

We have been doing upholstery work for years, Sorry to be a little vague, but there are variables..

The price could start at several hundred dollars and go up quite a bit from there.. It really depends on time, difficulty & materials.. Foam can sometimes be reused, but when it is older it is not always wise to reuse it. Even if and when you do, you will many times need to add to it so that the upholstery sits properly..
