Skyline Leather Seats upgrade and Window Tinting (SoCal)

Wed Sep 28, 2011 12:26 pm

I took my car to Tony Dang at Skyline Seating to have his company custom install leather for me. In addition, I asked Tony to have the tinting folks come by and tint the car while the leather was being installed. Tony managed to find a company that tinted (35% front and 20% back) my car for $160 with lifetime warranty (which is a better deal than I could have gotten here in San Diego). The custom leather was $1K cash. Service was very fast - I took my car in Monday morning and it was done by Tuesday lunch time.

I should mention that this company was first discovered by Mike Walsh in the Leather anyone? thread http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 20#p108338" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Since then, Tony has done some 20+ LEAFs with great results so I thought it would be fitting to start a new thread devoted to his handy work. He and his company have more than 25+ years of experience in custom leather installations. He can be reached at:

You should check out the center inserts with perforations. Gives the interior a nice custom look. Here are some photos of my upholstery job Tony did:

Thanks for the suggestion. I did think about it but opted to keep it simple ;-). Yours looks great - you should post more photos.

We have the same color leather!!! Tony did mine also last week. Very happy! Wish I had thought to ask about the tinting... :!:

Thanks, it does look and feel factory. I would say though that there are talented people everywhere and so it shouldn't be hard to find someone in the DC area that can do this; of course, price will depend on the local market.

Your interior is beautiful! Is his work all custom, or does he install a leather kit? Not anyone around here doing that kind of quality. I was looking at Katskins leather online, but they're wanting $2,000 just for the kit, without installation! So, if he uses kits I'd like to know where to buy one, if not, any recommendations would be great!
2011 Nissan Leaf sold after 33,000 miles
2012 Chevy Volt sold after 28,000 miles
2013 Toyota Rav4 EV 11,000 miles and counting!

Thanks for the compliment; others have better photos of their leather installation done by Skyline. Tony at Skyline does custom installation where the old upholstery is replaced with leather but now that he's done quite a few, I should think he'd be able to create a kit. I can email him and see what he says; else, you can contact him directly; his email is at the top.

Hi Jim. Tony and Santos did say that someone had chosen the same color including the lighter colour double stitching the previous week. I'm happy with our choice too :-)
