For as long as I can remember I've been a passionate artist & craftsman with a fascination for history and attention to detail...
I was raised into a life of appreciating the past; how things worked back then, and how to fix, restore, or recreate those things the way they used to: with skilled craftsmanship or what some might call "the lost arts".
My late father Rich Chrysler was a huge influence on me growing up. From a very young age he introduced me to the inspiring world's of Concours level classic sports car restoration as well as fine scale model building - which to this day remain my two biggest hobbies.
We also happened to live next door to Canada's largest vintage air museum, in a historical area of Southern Ontario, so I had an inevitable taste for vintage aircraft, trains, automobiles, and historical buildings.
As I entered the working world I got into auto mechanics, home renovations & restoration work. I evolved my skills through years of learning many different trades until I found my most satisfying passions in doing classic auto upholstery and trim.
For over 20yrs now I have been specializing in British and European auto upholstery.
My business is called Rightway Heritage Trimming - and for the past 6 years I have been creating a reputable name for myself here on Vancouver island.
In my spare time I still like to build scale models, or work on restoring my Austin Healey 100.
(The Healey is actually my second complete restoration, I also restored an early MGB a few years ago).
Besides that I also love getting outside in nature, camping, cycling, boating, playing music, and spending time with my lovely partner Cat, and our friends & family.
This Blog is a record of some of the beautiful cars and projects I've been working on, as well as some of the interesting scale models I've been building.
I hope you enjoy! -
