Upholstery in Alabama

I finally got my boat back today with new interior and carpet. After debating all last season whether to take it to Viper or to a local guy, I decided on Field's Upholstery in Northport Alabama. I was a little unsure about my color/pattern combination choice but as soon as I saw it today, I was stoked with the result. These guys run a very modest and friendly business out of their home. He felt bad that it took him longer than expected that he through in the carpet and installation for free. In total I paid about $1200 less than Viper's quote for the interior (which didn't even include carpet!). I had pulled everything out of the boat but when I got there today, they had reinstalled everything except for the parts that they didn't have the specific hardware for. That's service!
I still have to build a base for the rear seat, install motor box insulation, reinstall the tank and a bunch of other small stuff.
I'll post more photos when the light is better.

A couple more photos.
The cup holder/motor box vent was sort of a beige color. He was able to recover the pad but the rest he has to dye. He did an awesome job matching the color.
The rear seat was suffering from sagging in the middle (this issue has been covered in other threads). I decided to remake the seat base and divide it into three pieces. I now need to make a frame to support everything. The center section will be removable and will slide underneath for storage. This will then reveal a carpeted platform or step to use when getting in and out of the boat...instead of having to stand on the seat.

I need to come look at that. I really don't want to drive to Viper and have used Fields for other stuff.
