What’s great about Ron is that he’s a stand up guy who’s kind, professional and always willing to share his knowledge of the craft. In our exclusive interview with Ron, he told us:

“I can’t upholster every car in the country, but I can share my knowledge and help others who share the same passion for the industry with the tips and tricks it took me years to figure out. I have trained several of the very well-known trimmers in the industry and am thankful I had that opportunity.”
