I have a good friend that has an upholstery shop, and yesterday he offered to recover my seats in leather if I did a brake job on his van.
I just did his brakes because that's what friends are for, but he's a little nervous about the air bags in the seats on my Leaf. (He didn't realize they were there when he offered.)
Is it a bad idea to recover these? I've read that using a certain type of thread can allow the air bag to rip the seam, but it is a liability issue for him. Maybe I should settle for future work on one of my garage queens or my pickup.
