Have been asked to bid for this project. Haven't done one of these before so not sure how it's attached but wondering if anyone has some advice, suggestions, warnings and perhaps how long it might take a seasoned upholsterer to finish? Not sure what to charge.

Thank you!

Several Issues on this project:

Replacement cost?  Looks to have been made by up to date technology.  That is
digital pattern, digital cutting technique, and perhaps a bit more sewing than a
"walking foot".

Cushion attachment and fillers involved need to be known to make a business
decision.  The shop may be able to pull the job off but how much profit is there?  That  won't be known without gathering information and fully understanding the technical issues of construction.  The head rest construction, is one area that leaves a question.  It appears possibly it is made, filled, and then integrated into the overall cover.  Filling (stuffing) can be accomplished either way but provisions
have to be made accordingly.

Type of material required plays out in the profit issue, the patterning, sewing.

Or one could proceed, get the job - then find out what would have been good
to know upfront.

I recently did several dental chairs, that looked simple, but turned out to
leave the question "throw-a-way" item?  Some items aren't made like older.
