Jim Baker is his name. Several of his interiors have been in the Hot Rod magazines. We have known each other for about 30 years. He did a 55 Pontiac for me years ago. Actually dyed the leather the two colors of green the car came with. We have become close friends in the last 5 years. He only does work for friends, or friends of theirs. He is still very busy, and honestly only takes on things that interest him. I have suggested he could make covers for our group. But he really isn't into just cutting and sewing. He likes challenges.
Currently doing a 92 Porsche coupe. Not sure of what it is called, but the seats are quite intricate.
I see him nearly every day. I can ask him, but if he says yes, it is very similar to Norm. He is a perfectionist and will not be rushed. I guarantee his work, but not his time frames.. lol
JohnWR, one option they had that was not offered in the US was the smokers package. It took me quite awhile to get it for my car. I have never seen a real Opel, but have been told it was not a standard feature.
