There are good shops all over Fla. Best bet is go to as many car shows as you can and look closely at interiors. When you see ones you like, ask the owners who did the work and then go check them out. Better if you stick with a shop that specializes in automotive work. Bring your own ideas and have it done to meet your vision. But...most important , don't rush into it. Take your time, look at a lot of stuff, take pictures, then sit back and work it all out carefully before you go ahead.

I live in a beach town so we have boat interior places all over around here. i guess I could go look at the shops and see if they have a portfolio. I guess i have to start talking to people at car shows rather than just sit under a tree in a lawnchair and drink beer.....

You'r a quick drive from either St. Pete or Tampa. You should have no trouble finding a quality shop.

A 60 ragtop that doug had advertised on samba forever. Kevin will post a full build thread when it arrives, I'm sure.

That 60 rag actually is a local GJ find that Doug bought from George a couple of years ago...the cycle is a funny thing.
