Picked up the embroidered swatches for the seats and dropped everything off at the upholstery shop. RINKER will be no more. WOO_HOO.

I had the Glen L logo digitized and embroidered with Torpedo below it. I'll post pictures when I get the seats back.

I, for one, am looking forward to seeing them. I've noticed that all the work you do is first class. I have confidence that the seats will look fantastic!
Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.

Thanks, Dave, but it won't be my work this time. I'm fortunate enough to have a very good embroidery shop and custom upholstery shop nearby. The logo on the seats is very much like the shirts I had made.
