    Good luck. I'll be interested to hear if there are any. The one I used and recommended quit doing it and got a real job. There's got to be some around here somewhere.

    Danny Jones on Eakin road in Columbus. He's the best I know.

    I don't know the shop name, but I'm sure you can find it. Maybe something like ATech??

    Hope that helps

    Joe flowers still had his shop in Hilliard in the 90's, but I'm sure he has retired by now. He was a custom builder/upholsterer from long ago.

    I've had A-Tech do a couple of jobs for me-a complete custom 63 Galaxie interior and several repair jobs. He's on Eakin Road just off of 3C. He has a brother on S. Glenwood Ave. a few blocks south of Broad-I can't remember the name of the shop-he's a little more expensive also. alex

    I heard he quit? The problem I am running into is one guy was a chain smoker and smokes in customer cars while working on them (not in mine). Another was a year out till he could think about it. One was located in a high theft area and he moves cars in and out when working on them. One guy was old and couldnt do one of mine because it has a roll bar in it. I can go on but I keep hitting dead ends, I have tried a half a dozen shops within a 60 mile radius. I just want a simple rolled and pleat or tuck and roll, and not have my car for months!

    Yes, he DID great work. He is the one I was talking about that hung it up. He did my '40 in a traditional style with leather and I am still happy seven years later.

    I don't know how far you want to travel, but I couldn't find anything around here. The last one I had done was by Krist Kustoms in Fort Wayne, Indiana. In my opinion is the best in the area. His website is WWW.kristkustoms.com
    he will also come to your place and do the work in your garage.

    Go into Amish county and ask around. A friend had an Amish man do the bucket seats and rear seat for his 66 Chrysler that a kit was not made for.
    Looks Factory and cost $350 TOTAL

    If you are willing to travel up north to Mentor Ohio Jims is half the price of Portage and just as good. Send me a PM if interested and I can send some pics

    Thanks for all the replies, let me make this clear, I am not into the high end tricked out leather bling stuff. I like simple old school interiors just like what was done 50 years ago. My cars are old school and so should the interiors, as stated before I just want simple rolled and pletes or tuck and roll type interior work. If I could find a guy to do my seats and door panels I would drop just those off and do the rest after the car is sorted out. That seems to be a no way with all the guys I have talked to. I have the seats and the door panels out now and will be for the winter.

    There is a good interior guy in St. Paris OH named Dennis Baker, Baker's custom auto trim. I've seen many hot rods in his one car shop, but I was most impressed with a '61 Bonneville convertible he did that had a factory tri-color interior, looked brand new and correct when it was done. He quoted me $1000 for black tuck n' roll seats, an armrest repair, new carpet and a new package tray in my '68 Chrysler. I thought that was reasonable considering the quality of his work. PM me if you wish to contact him..

    Also, I know that he has done drop offs and mail orders in the past FWIW
