a tech here at the dealership is going to do some upholstery installation for me.....what do you guys think a fair compensation would be.....when I asked him what he would charge me, he replied, "whatever you think is fair"

local shops charge between $200-250

The local shop may charge $200-250, but the tech doesn't get that. I'd ask what his hourly rate is and double it - then pay in cash.

What exactly do you mean by "upholstery installation"? Slapping in a door panel or a seat, or actually getting out the hog ring pliers and sewing machine.

I can probably give you a pretty good idea what I would think is fair, but I need a better idea what you're doing.

The upholstery guy I use charged me $150 to install the upholstery on my 68 seats. He has a shop but he only opens part time. The full time folks want double that.
