This Friday (March 9) my '90 ragtop is going to J&H Auto Trim on Slaughter
Lane to get a new top. If his work is good, I'll be letting him reupholster
(?) the leather front seats in my Regal.

I'll let you know how their work turns out on the top.

Excellent.

I took the car to him the evening before, and it was ready Friday afternoon,
as he promised.

I do understand that the top is a kit, but the installation was perfect. The
top works much smoother than before, and the fit & finish are excellent.

He quoted me $700 to $800 for the leather in my Regal. Assuming that there
is nothing tricky about your seats, I would assume that yours would be about
the same.

I'll let you know now that his shop isn't one of those high-end, boutique
looking places. But his work speaks for itself.

By the way, the work was nice enough the the manufacturer of the top took
pictures of the finished car for their publications.

Now I wish I had waxed it before I took it in....

I'm glad you had those results! I've already e-mailed them for a quote.

Now if I can figure out which interior I want to put in... :-)
