I had a hard time finding someone to reupholster my 1950's Alfa Romeo. I asked around and got referred to Alex, owner of Sid's. I had already purchased seat covers and foam, so I thought it'd be easy for him to do. Alex didn't want to do it, using the materials I'd already purchased. He knew better. Finally I talked him into it, and now I knew why.  Nothing fit. Alex was really unhappy with the quality of the job, and called me a few weeks later with an idea to redo my seats as part of a workshop he put on. I couldn't be happier. This is a top quality shop with experienced craftsmen and high end tools to meet the demands of owners with cars of any value.

Toyota referred me here. I had a seat that was tearing, and I got my car detailed just so when I took it in, they could match as close to the original seat color as possible. I made an appointment for a few days later to get the work done. I left my car for the afternoon, and then picked it up, and they had done a superb job with the seat, and I was very pleased with the color match. And, the cost was about $300 less than I was expecting! I would definitely recommend Sid's Custom Upholstery to others.

Interior was a hit!


We took the car to the Alfa club Laguna Seca track weekend. Everyone commented on the combo and loved what you did with the seats.

Rescuing an Alfa Romeo Milano (75) 3.0 - a labor of love


A few years ago a friend offered his Milano to us, knowing we are the informal Alfa rescue society. The paint was starting to peel, it had a few minor dents, the interior was shot, and it was in dire need of maintenance. So we pulled a bunch of stuff and then sent it off for bodywork/paint, which took quite a while due to the backlog at the paint shop. Everyone loved how the paint on "Plum" turned out thanks to FZ Restorations.

We then started to work on the mechanical parts that had seen a long slow decline. Refreshed the cooling system, replaced the starter motor and alternator, new belts and fluids, did all the usual tuneup items, etc. The engine bay was spiffy again.

Finally it was time to redo the Recaro interior. The original interior for these cars is grey and black wool cloth, which is rather scratchy and dull. So I decided to go with a vintage theme, but brighten it slightly. Off I went to Sid’s Custom Upholstery to look at samples. The owner gave me a sample which I took back to the car to see how it would work with the paint, dash, and door materials. The texture and shades were perfect!

The seats that came with the car were extremely tired and required a lot of work before they could be recovered, but the people Sids know their stuff and everything was like new when they were returned. Of course there were many little trim items inside the car that needed help as well, so we used the time to repair or source fresher parts.

I’ll no doubt get better pics at some point, but here are the front seats, the rear seats (before tucking track harness under the seat), and door cards. Everyone loves how those big bolsters hug you tightly.
