My name is Pete. I used to use this site to tell people about my business. I am a former business owner. I owned a few upholstery and auto accessories businesses over the past 10 years. I’ve also owned an indoor soccer arena and an embroidery and t-shirt shop as well, so I know something about starting and running businesses.
Not all of these businesses were big successes (mostly because I did not find passion in them) but definitely invaluable experiences. My biggest passion (and most successful business) is upholstery. I’ve been doing upholstery, convertible tops and aftermarket installations for over 25 years. I enjoy the upholstery craft and the creativity that my clients have allowed me to have with their project.
After running by businesses, I’ve decided that I want to go back to the basics. So I still work on cars and I still do upholstery but I am much more selective with the projects I work on. I enjoy creating, learning and teaching from my experience so this is what I do.
Over the years I’ve met a lot of interesting and talented people, a lot of people with so much knowledge about the automotive industry from car salesmen to car builders and everything in between.
I’ve learned something from everyone and I hope to share some of that information here with you. I have experience in all aspects of the automotive trade. I started in the upholstery trade when I was 14 years old as an apprentice.
Over the past 25 years I’ve learned a lot about the automotive business and what it takes to run a business. I’ve learned about my clients, their questions and concerns and most importantly what they want. I’ve also learned a lot about the automotive industry in general and I will continue to learn as much as I can for as long as I can.
I hope this site is informative and useful to you as you work through your next project.
