I've got a car that I've elected to keep for a while, and it needs a fair amount of upholstery work done. I also live near Tijuana. I have heard that you can get upholstery work done in Tijuana for, on the whole, significantly less money than in the US.
I understand that there are a lot of those shops down there, ranging in quality and price from the incredibly cheap to the high-end. For what it's worth, I'm looking for good value, but I don't need or want the absolute cheapest job.
I have heard that you're supposed to bring your own thread. What about upholstery fabric--what kind of selection are they going to have and should I procure my own before going? Does anyone know any good shops?
