2022 Stitch of Excellence Winner


This interior theme honors the Impala heritage while giving it a custom twist. Tracy Weaver and his team at Recovery Room Interiors stitched off-white leather over custom seats and side panels in a clean ’60s style, complete with tan suede inserts and Impala-style trim buttons. There’s plenty of one-off custom-machined trim by Atomic Machine and Fiber Forged augmenting the upholstery work, including a custom aluminum bezel for the Dakota Digital instruments. The Recovery Room team upholstered the trunk to match, and even incorporated hidden compartments for a cigar humidor and martini shaker. Finishing touches inside include pedals and a shifter from Clayton Machine, and a custom-machined steering wheel atop the Flaming River tilt column.
