Hello all. Just getting started on this site. I own PRO Stitch Auto Interiors and Upholstery, Inc. in Taylorville, IL (www.**************)
. I've been in business 7 years and work on custom/classic cars, restorations, general upholstery, bikes, and anything else I can get under the machine.
Personally, I have a few projects going.
-Just drug home a 63 Chevy Bel Air 4-door post sedan with a 230-cid 6 and three-speed on the tree. Lots of rear end rust. Hoping to make it a fun family cruiser (three little kids wanting to take a ride) to take to local shows and advertise the shop.
-Also in the metal working process of a 1968 Dodge Dart two-door post with a 225 slant-6, auto. Doing a lowrider style to show off full-custom interior work from me and paintjob and bodywork from a local body shop that still does old cars and custom work. I'm doing the interior on his 1959 Caddy in exchange. Hoping for next year.
-Doing my own paint/body/mechanical/interior on a 1973 VW Super Beetle. Wanting to get it done with a custom interior to take to shows next year with a big 'ol "For Sale" sign in it. I want that sold so I can work on:
-1970 VW Karmann Ghia convertible. Total basket case. Going to take years and tons of cash to get done. But my 3-year-old son is totally behind it and is looking forward to driving it.
-1940 Buick 4-door coupe, former hot rod, that's waiting in the wings. I really want to do some Kustom stuff to it. I like the greenhouse, so probably not a chop, but it would look nice channeled, sectioned and pancaked hood. But it's really rough. We'll see.
-Oh yeah. How could I forget. I have three Pontiac Fieros. One 1984 SE I'm updating and putting an 87 nose on, GT rear end, aftermarket wing, paint, all the fun stuff. Another 84 that might or might not get done. It's taken apart and sitting. And a third one that's for parts. Really good shape, though. Maybe the basis for a kit car someday. Who knows?
