Default Looking for TACOMA WA area upholster.

I paid a local garage to help me with some issues on my EM Cobra replica. They took my car to a shop in Seattle to have a custom soft top built to fit over my high roll bar. The local garage didn't say where or who but a piece of paper taped tp the EM soft top box gave me great clues. I didn't get any notice of exactly what they were doing or did I get to add any input until it was all over and money was due. It turned out great and it cost what i thought was a bunch.
I hesitated having the top shop in Seattle do my side curtains as my EM side curtain also would not fit and had to be made from scratch. I have some input to offer who ever is chosen to make a pair of new side curtains using my boxed EM set as examples . The local garage is back to just saying they have a a Lakewood WA area upholstery shop they will use.
I had a friend of a friend that is still doing upholstery in his garage on a limited basis. I intended having him do the work , after a week after showing everything and talking to that upholster, he changed his mind and now did not want to get involved in my project. He is sick and is showing it.
I want to get in touch with a local ( S TACOMA WA ) area upholster to get involved with my side curtain project. I don't think It need to go all the way to Seattle to get abused. More interior work may follow later. The EM side curtain have a bent and welded Stainless steel frame made of 3/8" SS round rod. I may want to start with buying the 3/8" Stainless rod material ahead of time. What number of SS rod should I buy?

Anybody know a near by upholster that would work with me? Near me is Tacoma Washington 98409
