Greg58,
I was after the auto apolster to put a new headliner in my 40 Dodge. he kept putting the job off for over 1-1/2 years. Each time I spok to him the price went up. Finally he told me "I'll do your headliner and seat covers next week". I asked him the price, He said "Even trade for that motorbike you had on the back of the dodge, the first time you came in". I told him that was not an option! He said "Well then I'm not interested".

So I did the job myself. Sure not as good as he would have done, but good enough for me.

My upolstry photo are hi resolutin & can't upload. Will take some lower res and post then!

The guy that did mine is a long time friend, I worked for him in the summer of 1973. He's the one that gave me the fender skirts, he also gave me a overdrive transmission for my car. He has over a dozen cars and trucks and buys a lot of parts at swap meets, the trans was part of a lot priced package of parts he wanted.

I have a little way to go myself. I've known my spouse since '93, and have been married to Sarah for 15 of those years, and counting. My old Dodge Caravan is the senior vehicle at 17 years old, but it's still going strong. So far so good.

~30 years with my wife.
Nothing like a loving wife especially when life gets hard.
