I took my 1955 Buick Roadmaster in to an upholstery shop to have the whole interior redone. I want to have new carpet put in, a new dashboard, the door panels refinished and the seats redone. The shop I took it to does excellent work, and I know I will be happy with the results. The shop owner is wonderful at doing car restorations, and having everything look the way it did in 1955 when the car rolled out. She also is great at putting everything back together. She uses high quality seat brackets to put the seats down securely. I have seen her work on other vehicles, and I can only imagine how great my car will look when it is all done.
I wanted to do most of the work on the car myself. I rebuilt the engine, had it painted and did all of the electrical work on it. I asked her if she would allow me to assist with the upholstery process. She agreed, and together we took all of the seats apart, took off the side walls and the carpet as well. I picked what material I wanted to use, and after she was all finished with everything, she let me help put it all back together again. I got to screw in the seat brackets myself, and so I feel accomplished.
The car itself is almost completed. I am only waiting on a vehicle inspection, and new tires and then she will be ready for the viewing public to see.
