“I thought you and your team would love to see how great your leather turned out in our 1965 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible. The car originally had only leather in the seat and backrest inserts with the rest of the seat in vinyl. We wanted to keep originality, so matching the pearlescent parchment vinyl to the leather was very important. And it turned out flawless!!! The upholsterer, Jimmy Kowalczyk from Addison Auto Interiors in Addison, Illinois, was quite impressed himself with the matching. Thank you to you and your team for making our car’s interior just look so beautiful! Also, the purchasing process was so easy and enjoyable. We tell all our friends about you guys and our great experience. Hope you get more orders!”

“Here are some photos of my 1962 Coupe DeVille. I am extremely pleased with the quality of the material and most importantly the match. I was able to salvage my original seat bolsters and even leather on the armrests of the seats Only the seating surface was replaced with your leather, the rest is from 1962!! I have shown the upholstery work to several friends who are very discriminating car owners and they were shocked with the excellent match. Please also extend my thanks to Maggie for a wonderful experience your company has provided. I would recommend your company to anyone in the antique car hobby who is looking for the correct leather on their vehicle.”

A special thanks to Lou Commisso for help with the paint formula, to Steve Passmore who has gone out of his way to provide me with technical assistance, to Ralph at Keleen Leather who patiently helped me choose the correct red color, to Scott Bigelow of Scott’s Custom Built Parts in Plainville, MA who did all my mechanical work, bodywork and painting, and to Kustom Kreations in North Reading, MA who did all the upholstery…”
