Beach Van gets prestige.

Prestige Auto Upholstery was the choice for new interior
and they did not disappoint.


For the past two months, the beach van has been at Prestige Auto Upholstery in North Hollywood. The goal was to keep all the original wood and the stain glass walls. Yes that was original stain glass on the panels. The quilted ceiling and side panels had to go. The seats were in the worst shape, but the back sofa cushions may have been worse. The linoleum floor was a must-go, so everything ended up gutted. Once the wall was taken out for the wood floor, there seemed no need to put them back, which left a beautiful open space. We went with distressed faux leather for seats and cushions, and Prestige suggested replacing the quilting with the leather which at first seemed odd but now it is perfect for the changes we want for the beach van. We went with a lighter color for the suede ceiling, and the choice of Hawaiian prints for curtains will provide the beach van feel we are looking to achieve. A new awning for the outside was put in, but the search for two dressers or nightstands has not materialized. Polishing up the original wood and the search for the perfect rug and pillows should finish off the interior — next step paint. Thanks to the team at Prestige Auto for all the work and their reliability, this was a wonderful experience.
