From best upholstery. He has done work for my family for years, he does hospital upholstery, McDonald's, almost everything in Oklahoma, because his prices are fair, and he does a damn good job.
We match the vinyl to my blue last week and the dark charcoal to the dash, and it came out to be 1000 for all the seats, and him repairing a part of my seat foam, he also adds a inch of foam that he sews to and then sews into the current foam so you get extra padding.
He does a lot of custom work, he did a custom
Box with chrome and leather for a band singer, can't remember which one, it's a big known guy, anyways and he made it to hold this human skull the singer had. It was awesome. Cool guy.

He is about mid priced around, but he gives u the job of something that would cost 3k.
And I trust him.
I could go somewhere that would do it for 509 but the quality and durability of the stuff wouldn't be as good.
And he is doing some thick stitching so it stands out too. I can't wait till I get the money. Im

Ya that's just 800 for the leather, the leather for me would've cost 600 alone so, the install fee is where it gets you unless u do upholstery

I feel for ya. Just wait and hope for the best. Some guy came and said 4800 for mine when it is a great deal at 6. He came up to 5200 and I had to think on it and when I called him for a counter he had bought the gt for 4200...

Re: What Did You Do To Your Sixxer Today?

After last dyno sessions, timming was advanced even more. Two bottles of this will go inside this morning. It's about 100 degrees right now and I'm making a long trip over the Blue ridge mountains and I'm installing two bottles and will monitor...

Here is a link with Shelby adding it to the supercharger and coolant system. Results are in article. Apperars that 2 bottles performed best, 3 bottles hurt results, and 2 bottles much, much better than one bottle. Sooo. Just some FYI-

Re: What Did You Do To Your Sixxer Today?

Ok so quick question I think it I already know what it is but just making sure.... I had got in this race with a honda hatchy lol it was funny cause I saw him last minute hauling a** behind me, SO I dropped gear and picked up speed but since he was already going faster he passed me for less then a minute(No lie) and I passed him right up. I decided to just leave him trailing a mile back it was hella funny but this is the part I have my question I was reaching 120 in my car then the radio cut out and all I heard was "EERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR" Scared the F-N Sh*t out of me. What the hell was that noise?

On your private legal 4 mile long dragstrip of course.
What's your guess on what happened?
Because I have 0 idea, but I would like to hear your thoughts.
My only guess would be the gov?
