Custom Interior Shop in S. Florida/Miami/Chicago?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! It's been a LOOOONG time but I'm finally back stateside!

 

I'm getting the Monte out of storage, and I want to use all this sweet Tax-Free "Iraq" money to redo the interior. Professionally.

 

The car is in storage up in Chicago, and I'm going to need to get it shipped down to Miami for me to drive down to my new duty station in Key West. I figure Miami HAS to have a decent custom shop that does good work for a good price, and I'm asking if anyone has any recommendations? I suppose even a good shop that can be trusted in Chicago would work...

 

I wanna take a "modernized" approach to the original interior.... make it a little more comfortable and new without losing the class or making it look like a "Rice-burner interior".

 

So, aside from me hitting up google, who amongst my respected club-mates here has experience with any shop's in lower Florida or up in Chicago?

We have an excellent shop here in Anderson Indiana. Arts Trim Shop has been doing interiors since I was a kid. Jack Stepp and I went to high school together and he has always done me a real good job n anything I have had to have worked on. Only problem he is a little on the pricy side but stands behind his work. I think it was his dad who started the business and is the only place Jack has eve worked.

WOW. 5 1/2 yrs since your last post. Thank you very much for serving our country. I'm glad you've made it back home, and I hope you enjoy your car and everything else you've done without while serving. 2beers

Isn't that a "backwards" transition? The SH-60F is an older model, same common air vehicle but different hydraulic systems, no glass cockpit, etc. I retired from Bravos, but mostly worked the Foxtrots and Hotels in my time... the Sierra's were brand new and the Romeo was still too heavy... Welcome back, by the way.

It is indeed a "backwards" move. The Foxtrot is being phased out, NAS Key West SAR is one of the last places it still flies (as a 60 guy yourself, you'll know the Station SAR spots always get the hand-me-down and leftover airframes). We will hopefully be receiving some Sierra's this year... no guarantees.
