I used viper customs for the new interior in my x-star last year. They did a fantastic job. I sent the skins to them in late October and had the new ones back on about 3 weeks. I do have to say that Jimmy it's not the greatest at returning calls or email, but I really didn't have any issues.

Jackson is not a seasonal fibber either.. It's year-round from my experiences.

This guy does good work and is in close proximity of Knoxville, TN:

I sent my '91 prostar skins to Jim the "Upholstery" guy the first week of March because he is said to do good work and is fairly inexpensive. Well, it's almost September and they still haven't arrived. I called him back in May, I believe, and he said they would be done that week and he'll ship them out Monday... Trying to be patient, I wait. August rolls around so I give him another call. He answers and says they're packaged and will ship out the next Monday... Still nothing. Oh well, at least the only money I've lost so far is for shipping. He seems like a nice guy, but I wish he would just communicate a little better and be honest when he says he'll ship it.

Also check with Infiniti- Fabrications in Loudon. Formally Leading Edge. Lenny worked in P.D.and E at MC. He does the work himself.
Get with him now to avoid the fall winter rush. They only do custom work in the fall winter due to production commitments during the summer months.
