Default Leather Dash Repair

I live in OC and the leather on the dash of my '08 is pealing back and I want to get it fixed. Has anyone out there had this fixed, and if so, where?
It seems like this is a common problem with many cars, not only Corvettes.
The hard part of the fix is that the dash has to be removed to replace the leather.

Thanks

Did you end up finding a place to do it? My 2009 has the same issue. I’m thinking of peeling the entire leather off. Any thoughts?

I have had no luck so far. I'm laid up right now. Will start looking in two months.

The other method is to R&R the windshield using a company like Safelite, etc. while its at an upholstery shop. Then its a simple re-glue for them with easy access to the dash.

Thanks for the suggestion.
I'm not getting around now, had both knees replaced.
I'll give them a ring.

Hey Folks,

Just an FYI, I had my dash pad removed and replaced at my local Chevrolet Dealer. Before I went to the dealership, I talked with several custom upholsterers in the area, and none of them wanted to touch it!

I also searched Ebay and other vendors for dash pad pricing.

I ended up paying $3,700 for the entire project, including dash pad, installation, etc.

The pad itself was $2,300.

Though it was a lot of money, it's now done.

I was very pleased with the work done at *** Chevrolet in Bradenton, FL...

I am not connected with them, just wanted to pass on my experiences so it may help others.

Charlie
