Ron Mangus Hot Rod Interiors

Ron started his stitching career in 1969. In 1989 he opened his own Upholstery Shop called Custom Auto Interiors in Bloomington, CA. Along with owning and operating his own business, Ron also instructed basic and advanced upholstery classes at San Bernardino Valley College for four years.

Throughout his 40 year career as a master trimmer, Ron has accumulated a countless number of awards and accolades recognizing his skill and creativity. He has been a major contributor for “How-To” articles and finished car features in magazines like Hot Rod, Rod & Custom, Street Rodder and many more renowned publications. In 1999 Ron co-authored his first book and has since then added two more books to his collection of titles.


If you ask Ron what his greatest accomplishment as a trimmer of over 40 years, his response is simple, “I have always had the desire to share my knowledge of the trade with others. My greatest career accomplishment is serving as a mentor to up and coming upholsterers and entrepreneurs."
