shine it is actually light gray . i don't care for contrast stitch cord either. not too bad considering he was working over the padding someone else did.

Jallopy I just love the white and the stitches look great also. Much better looking than the piping cord in the defect seats.

DanTwoLakes Anything would have been an improvement over what the first guy did. This looks much better.

shine well edward dropped of the 37 yesterday. he's happy do i'm happy.
discovered the remote system did not work when we picked it up from granbury. just more work created. i will have to trace all the wiring to find what's up. lot of fun stuffing 6'6 250 under that dash.....

shine he is aware of what is going on. if he wants to join the law suit then so be it plus he was told the first sign of the job being shoved aside we will come get the car. i will not tolerate that. i don't do it in my shop and don't intend to be done that way. there is no excuse for it. if you cant do the job don't take it . there will also be no up front money .

DanTwoLakes I hope you have better luck with this shop than you had with the last one.

shine well the 37 is at the stitchers shop . being redone. will save the trunk but he said the rest was garbage and he would not even try to save the seats. they were cut and sewn wrong in the first place . don't blame him one bit. gave a solid price and delivery date. i may let him do the 56 210 depending on the outcome . the other shop has a rude awakening coming as he will get the bill for it.

That it was Dan. You and I both know that the seat would end up like an old Indian shrunken head.

shine there's some leather on the door panels . he used leather and vinyl on them. color doesn't match well enough. plus it was not suppose to have all that carpet on it.
i guess the only right way to do it is find a decent stitcher and just start over. of the last 4 cars i had done i got screwed on all but one. just really getting tired of excuses to why it does not get done.

thanks dan

No, I don't think they can be saved, at least not the way they are now. I'm sure they could be better, but not like they should be. If the leather that's glued down now is glued down with contact adhesive, it's going to have to be replaced also I'm afraid. Regular leather maybe, but suede is a whole different animal. I think the next guy is pretty much going to have to start over.

alittle1 ....nothing that a heat gun can't take out!

If that don't work, put it in a nice pile, pour gas on and burn it. Where have all the craftsmen gone? Can't get a paint job done either. If the job doesn't turn out, they say, 'well I'm only charging you $5000', and if it does turn out, they up the price a grand or two. Where's the justice???

DanTwoLakes People who do work like that are what gives upholstery a bad name, just like the hacks who think they can paint a car.

shine it is no way acceptable to me. we are taking it to another shop to be redone. documenting it all and will sue the guy to pay for redoing it. he wasted 2 hides . he threw stuff together each time we came to make it look like he was working on it.
he had the car since nov . i've never been vindictive when it came to a mans livelihood but the clown needs to be run out of business .
the door panels were suppose to have a reverse mustang design to match the seats. i even drew it out for him .he ran out of swede so he just used carpet instead of buying more.

DanTwoLakes Wow, Shine that work is pretty awful. I've seen beginners do a far better job than that. I hope you didn't have to pay anything for it.
