    Sean is no doubt one of the best out there and I have seen plenty of his work. No matter where he is his talents will shine.

    So just for fun, someone throw out some numbers of what these interiors cost. I can imagine they're spendy, but how spendy? $10k? $15K? More? Just curious.
     
  9. These need to be added to this thread!!

    Those rumors are greatly exaggerated! Theres only room for two gnomes at the most in there these days. :)

    I've said it before, but I'll say it again...as far as I'm concerned Sean is the best upholsterer out there. He's also one of the hardest working guys I know.

    He did an amazing job on the '32 Roadster...and I hope we get to work together again very soon.

    I'd like to know,too, just so I know how big a piggy bank to buy.

    There's costly and expensive. Costly is when something is a whole lot of money but worth every penny. Expensive means it cost more than it was worth.

    Agreed. I wouldn't be opposed to spending some coin on a high quality interior. That said, I have no idea what kind of $$ we're looking at. I would love to know. Anyone willing to fess up? lol....

    The green truck is cool. He even made the flip flops. And Dr. Dan's car is outer space!

    If anyone is interested in finding out how much a FatLucky interior would be for their car they should get ahold of Sean for a quote.

    I'm thrilled with my FatLucky interior. The cost match the quality and uniqueness.

    groovy! Sean just sent me a picture of my new Fatlucky bicycle seat for the wife's JC Higgins prewar bike. Her name is Shamrock...hence the seat.

    The bike seat was not an enviable task. It turned out cool. I've got some other pictures of car seats he did for me a couple years ago. I'll try to find them.
