    I'm thinking about have some of my interior reupholstered. Are there any places on line that offer that, and if I have it done locally, what should I look for in a shop? I want my headliner and pillars redone in suede or alcantara. The current vinyl is aged and has some minor tears in it, and needs to be replaced.

    Check around the luxury car dealers and see who they use. Check with car clubs too.

    also check with some higher end car audio/enhancement shops (think unique (whips) auto/310 motoring/West Coast Customs) for suggestions or to actually get the work done there.

    my local audio shops suck. They don't seem to do anything better than the Best Buy goons.

    the first place is about 1/4 mile from where I work. They do great work w/ canvas, but I wasn't sure how they would handle what I'm trying to do.

    I may look up the second place though because I have a hella comfy chair that needs new upholstry.

    My parents turned me on to a local guy. He's a bit more expensive than average, but the work is top notch.

    sweet. and i was thinking like you about the canvas shop, but figured worst case scenario is they would have a good recommendation. then again, if they can stretch canvas....
