I entrusted Irene and her team with all the custom leather for my air cooled Porsche 911 restoration.  This included custom seats, dash, shifter, door and side trims, and a bespoke roll cage.  The workmanship is top quality.   They've also re-upholstered some of my home furnishings, with the same top quality workmanship.
Pros:
- High quality
- Attention to detail
- Great design eye
- Fair costs
- Willing to partner with you with a team approach
- Leather supplier knowledge and supplier management
Cons:
- There are few who can do the work they do - so they are very busy.  Plan your timing ahead and be patient

I just had the center console top on my Acura TL replaced by Albo Restoration Services. Their work was amazing!  The center console top looks brand new! They did exactly what they said they would do. Great people!

Irene and her team performed a wonderful restoration of the interior of my 2009 Subaru Impreza, including new leather seats throughout, with contrasting stitching, and complete interior detailing. It is a stunning result. On top of everything, she was extremely to easy to work with and her prices are very reasonable. I recommend Albo Restoration without any reservations.

Took some seats from my 2004 Formula 27PC in to be recovered as the vinyl had dried out and had split seams.  2 weeks later they were all done and look great, just as good, if not better than factory.  Good pricing too as their labor and materials (new vinyl and foam)  were about the same cost as replacement vinyl skins from Formula.  (Replacement skins you have to install yourself and you're still stuck with old worn out foam)  If you need work done with your upholstery this is the place to go!

What is the best time to repair a convertible top in Chicago?

Arrow icon

Great question! Since your convertible top replacement or repair will take your car off the roads for a bit, and with the summers being as beautiful as they are, we recommend getting your repairs done outside of those months in the Spring or Fall seasons. This way, you have your car for all the months it's best in the city.

Why do convertible tops get damaged?
