Today's Message from John:
It has been my goal to provide top quality materials with top quality workmanship in our upholstery shop. I have invested in top-notch equipment and personnel to be able to do all our interior work right here in Rensselaer, IN. We are equipped to either provide you with the finished products for your own installation, or expertly install them here in our shop. We can provide everything you need from the headliner to the carpet, all custom cut and fit to your specific aircraft.
We have found through years of experience that every airplane is unique in construction and dimension and we try hard to address the small differences by custom-fitting everything to your specifications before shipping it out to you.
I currently have 2 complete seat/side panel sets in Gray Leather ready to ship (on an exchange basis) in standard patterns as portrayed in the previous pages. One set will fit the earlier model 'contour' seat design and the other is the newer 'pillow' seat design. Both are made either for Cheetah or Tiger.
Have it your way...
We'll be happy to fabricate a complete interior set in your choice of colors and covering materials (leathers, vinyls, or cloth). Conformity/Flammability certificates will be included with the products when shipped. Please call me with any questions you may have about how we can begin on your newest upgrade!

* Early model interiors 1975-77 with contour seats require more labor to fabricate covers and redesign the backs: call for the optional costs associated with these interiors.
** There will be an additional charge for new plastic scuff plates on carpet runners. If your old scuff plates are in good condition they can be re-used.
***This is not a Quote. As per (*) the early model interiors require more labor. Give me a call to discuss options and your specific needs.
