    I have no hands-on experience with Xtreme Upholstery ( Xtreme Upholstery ) in Denton, but intended to go take a look. I got sidetracked with A/C, HX, etc., etc. The shop was recommended to my by another CHR member from Corinth, TX - sg4356. Repeat - not a recommendation, but rather a lead.

    sg4356 (Dennie) wasn't really happy with the guy, had to have some redone by some one else.

    Thanks, Don. That's good to know. I'm looking for a shop around here also, and I don't think my Gibbonmobile is going to be easy to do.

    I know of 4 guys and 3 I WILL NOT use. The one I would like to use is priced WAYYY too high.

    I'm supplying all material, glue, foam, and material to make panels. To cover the seat, make door panels, make wrap around rear panels, and the head liner he wants north of 7K.... I think that is a bit much.

    Seems that you could afford to trailer it a few hundred miles for that kind of money. I know a guy who was trying to keep a young gun busy in NW Arkansas a year or so back, and there's one in my area (too far from you) like that, too. If you're willing to travel a bit one of the guys on here might know someone close enough to make it work for you.

    My guy did this for around 5K, he supplied all except I had the $25 junk yard seat bolted in. Besides that it was empty, included the trunk also

    Well I went over and talked with Roger from RPL Customs. Thank god he is a friend and willing to work with my budget.

    The interior will be done in Raven Wing Ultraleather and he will be supplying all the materials. He agreed that we can get it done for around 5K. His original price was north of 7K but we had a bit of a communication error. Mainly on my part. He assumed he was going to be supplying a glide seat and having to hack it up. I wish I would have snapped a few pictures of his work. It is flat out amazing!

    I informed him about a great company....BENGELS! He is looking forward to getting his hands on one of their seats.
