Brian and His Stylish 2018 Hyundai Sonata

Customer Spotlight
Although most of our customers are pretty awesome, this post is about Brian and his choice in a seat cover manufacturer (us of course). Like a lot of people out there, Brian was shopping around for the best price and quality. We got his inquiry and reached out to him. It was fate, he was a few minutes away from our factory and jumped on the opportunity to drop by. Long story short, he picked out the color and fabric and explained what he wanted. We let him dictate what he wanted and we delivered. His seat covers turned out amazing. He got the custom Leatherette seat covers he's always wanted and custom double stitching, and we picked up a new employee. Brian is now working with us taking patterns…

Sandra and her 2013 Honda Accord

Customer Spotlight
Sandra was accepted to Stanford! Her parents were so proud of her. They were going to surprise her with their 2013 Honda Accord as a graduation gift. Their seats were a little dirty and wanted to give her a fresh new interior. Her parents picked  Neosupreme Black and Silver which perfectly matched her White exterior and Black interior. We worked around their schedule and opened early for them the day of the graduation. By the time we were done, her parents and brother drove  on over to the ceremony and to hand her the new car. We feel honored when people come to us for these types of surprises! Even Opie, our resident poochie was in love with the seat covers. Sorry Sandra, he was not part of your graduation present.
