Default Looking for a good upholstery shop on the south side

Looking to redo the seats in my FJ40. Anyone know of a good shop that is reasonably priced?

I had a guy off of Santa Fe, called Golden Needle. Mark Hamlin, I think is his name. Good guy, always has something nice in his shop he is working on.

He did my Alfa Romeo seats, door panels and new canvas top back in 99. wow that was a while ago. seems like yesterday.

When I restored my 1975, I went with SOR http://www.sor.com/sor/cat310.tam and they turned out fantastic. I would guess that he cost was a fraction of what a shop will charge and you would be hard pressed to tell they weren't OEM...

Good Luck..

Thanks, guys.

I may check out Golden Needle because I also want to have some leather work done in the 80.

I had the headliner installed in my FJ40 by these guys:

Master Craft Auto Upholstery
(303) 443-7445
mastercraftautoupholstery.com
5625 Newland Way
Arvada

Friendly guys, quality work at a fair price. I plan to have
them redo the seats in my 40 when I have the time/$.
