Custom Auto Upholstery Owner Jim Holder has 50 years of upholstery experience. After going to a shop in Huntsville, Ala. to get seat covers and finding the price to be too high ($29.95 installed front and rear), Holder was offered a job at the shop where he could make $30 a week. After taking the job, Holder later made his own seat covers and has been working on upholstery since. "The first car I put a top on was a 1937 Ford. I have restored a lot of old cars. You have to love to do it. A lot of people just do not mess with this kind of stuff."
