Default Help with S/E Michigan interior shops

I am going to redo my boats cockpit interior. I wanted to ask if anyone had a good expirence, and would recommend an interior shops in S/E Michigan. Up to two hours from Detroit would be OK.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Try Lairds auto glass and trim in Plymouth. They did a set of bolsters from scratch for a 43 Scarab we had. Excellent work! They do a ton of classic car interiors. They know there stuff.

Glassdave,
I went to see Andrews Upholstery today. That is the place Straight jackets buddy is using. I met the owner Rick and was impressed with his work. He spent a lot of time with me talking about ideas, and showing me work that he has done and is doing. It may be worth calling him or the trip to see him. Their number is (810) 742-5557. He is located in Burton, MI. It is next to Flint.
I have not been able to go see Apperance yet, we have been playing phone tag.
If anyone else has any other recommendations I would appreciate it.
