It was so exciting to get to work on this 1932 Mercedes Kit Car! Goes to show they really don't make em like they used to, because we had to rebuild the top so the owner could comfortably fit behind the wheel!

We love nothing more than to find solutions for our customers so that they can drive safely, comfortably, and in style!

It doesn't take long for a little rat to do a lot of damage! This 2015 Toyota Highlander looked like it had been ransacked when it came to us. When upholstery is this damaged there's no choice but to replace it all, in this case with a beautiful two tone leather kit to match the original interior.

Don't let damage get you down, turn it in to an upgrade and chose leather!

We swapped the upholstery out on this set of chairs for a local business to match their new decor and they couldn't look better!

Even if furniture is made to last, most fabric just can't survive years of use and exposure. We can save your quality pieces by replacing worn out upholstery, padding and/or trim; giving them a whole new lifetime worth of use!

If custom isn't exactly what the customer ordered then it's time to skip the rest and come to the best!

We re-designed, re-shaped, and generally completely re-did the seat for this Ducati. Now it not only meets the owners needs as far as comfort and reach, it's also far more their style.

When the glue gives up, it's time to get it fixed right.

Sometimes things like the engine design get more attention than door panel trim. When these things fail we will make everything better than new!

How to Protect Your Car from Sun Damage

UV rays cause untold damage to our cars, even on cloudy days like today. Solar rays dry out everything they touch; damage that may appear to be only cosmetic might end up leading to extensive damage whether it's cracked seals or torn seats. Take these steps to protect your car today so we don't have to replace your upholstery tomorrow.

The sun constantly supplies us with warmth, daylight and renewable energy. But for anyone that has ventured to the beach on a hot July day, you realize just how quickly the sun’s powerful ultraviolet (UV) rays can burn and dehydrate exposed skin.

Classic car restoration is a labor of love that we are honored to be a part of. We installed a new convertible top on this 1966 Pontiac GTO in the spring and after enjoying a summer with the wind in their hair the owner had the padding replaced in the seats. Wonder what we get to do next on this beauty.

A leather kit is a great way to add durability to your cars upholstery. Leather seats are more difficult to tear and stain than traditional fabric, paw prints and spilled good wipes off with ease! If you're also looking for maximum comfort, we can put seat heaters in while we're at it!

Spots, spills, and the general muck of life can really show in your vehicle upholstery over time. Shampooing can sometimes make it worse if the cushion or fabric don't properly dry after. Possibly even ruining your upholstery!

Baby wipes are an inexpensive and efficient alternative and should get most stains out. Gentle enough for a baby, wipes don’t contain abrasive chemicals and won't leave residues that can damage the upholstery material. They are often the better choice for drivers and passangers with allergies or sensitive skin as well.

Great to meet you guys today and thanks for the help! What talent and what a cool setup!
The Sound RIDER! August 2016 Show: Listen Now at www.soundrider.com/show We’re up to our neck in Rally Gators and we’ve got interviews today with the people behind the scenes making it happen. But first Tom and Derek dive into newsbytes to discuss a west coasters look at the Motus, fall TV fun, new 2017 models and trail b***y traps in Idaho. The calendar is smoking hot this month so the team covers the highlights in detail. Key staff lays out many of the details about the 2016 Rally in the Gorge (8/24-28) over two segments of interviews. The show closes with a few tips to make your touring a better experience. #RitG16 Tags: #RallyintheGorge, #SuzukiVanVan, #Yamaha2017FZmodels, Hannegan Speedway, #RallyintheValley, #RideforSpecialOlympics, #MonkeyButt300, #YamahaDemoDays, #WallowaThunderRun, The MotoFit Group, Moon Motorcycles, RICH'S CUSTOM UPHOLSTERY, Adventure Motorsports, South Sound Honda Suzuki

Another great job of seat recovery by the staff at RICH'S in the continual restoration of my 1982 VW Westfalia
well today started out to be right up there in the top worst days list, that is until i rushed my baby (2011 convertible mustang 5.0- truly the love of my life) in to rich's for an emergency ! and the doctor was in! as i stood there in near tears recounting the vileness of people like joe cryblskie for slashing my new top a gift from a dearest friend at christmas time.(my old one had back window busted out years ago) a top that was not even installed by the heroes at rich's by the way ! i asked if there was something i could do to mend it , i was told to go sit down , not 15 minutes had gone by and here comes my baby all patched up he not only glued a patch in but also hand stitched it as well. he also brought to my attention that there is a factory defect involving my new top a ford oem straight from the dealership was defective from the factory ! T.G.! because of their attention to details ....i will be getting the top replaced not because of the slash, because of an unseen issue they discovered! i can not begin to express how truly and completely great full i will forever be to RICH'S CUSTOM UPHOLSTERY !!!!! that damned car means the world to me , it was dads before he passed he in trusted me with it . so to you awesome folks there you have to make room for my baby, she will be needing her new top put on and i swear i will only take her to you for all of her future beauty needs THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH . a very happy EMILY HART Sumner WA.
