Auto Trimming is Becoming a Lost Art - Page 3

Second Chance Garage asked Kaschel where she finds the correct upholstery for classic cars. "I've got books," she said. "And I get a lot of fabrics and materials for cars like the 1965 Chrysler Imperial from a place in Oregon called SMS. They're pretty good at finding what we need."

What the old-car restoration hobby needs is more shops like Red's Upholstery. Several weeks after we dropped the seat off at the shop, we got a call saying it was done and ready for pickup. The seat looked great. The problem we have now is it looks so much better than the passenger seat, we're tempted to have the second seat done. And the funny thing is, even that would be less money overall then buying and installing a kit with everything factored in.
