We have just completed the manufacturing and fitting of all bespoke
curtains, blinds and soft furnishings for a beautiful grade II

This stunning property which has direct views over the Clifton
Suspension Bridge, had custom made curtains, blinds, headboards and
upholstered wardrobe panelling fitted throughout its four floors and
swimming pool/gym filled basement.
The very top floor has a bespoke bed which incorporates a flat
screen television, which at a touch of a button elevates the
screen from out of the base of the bed.
All of the panels and bolster parts were hand made and upholstered.

Conversion No2 in progress.
Due to the publicity of our first Green Goddess conversion, Awesome
has now been commissioned to convert another Green Goddess fire
engine by a customer looking for a unique interior.
This vehicle will have even more space created inside, with a larger
lounge and a custom made roof which will ensure more headroom and
views of the sky through a large bespoke sunroof.
It will also feature a luxury horseshoe style lounge, large rear
view window, full leather interior and drink facilities.
The vehicle will be used for watching motor racing events, where the
customer will use deck chairs on the reinforced roof and get a birds
eye view of the proceedings.
Awesome's newest project gets nationwide exposure.
Feel like a knees-up with a difference? Then what about a
'pimped-up' 1957 Green Goddess, called Mary.
The fire engine has all the mod-cons a party vehicle needs –
including a state-of-the-art sound and entertainment system, disco
lighting, champagne bars and a faux green and cream leather
Of course, it also comes complete with 100m (328ft) of hosing,
should there be a real-life disco inferno.
Working closely with the owner Lee Russell from Holywell,
Cambridgeshire, who bought the fire engine back in November 2007,
Awesome has created a one of a kind interior for the newest addition
to his new business “Alterative Limos”.
The commercial deep sea diver commented: 'I love historic vehicles
and wanted something that would make a statement, something I could
have fun with. She certainly turns heads.'
Lee bought the Green Goddess, which spent its working life at RAF
Sealand in Deeside, Wales and found out she was in service during
the fire brigade strikes of the 1970s, when the Army had to step in
to fight fires.
He added: 'She went on three jobs – two fires and one cat rescue,
the cat died.
I felt so sad she hadn't been put to good use,
so she won't be saving lives now but she'll bring a lot of joy to
lots of people.'
The project took a total of four months to complete the eight-seater
'dream machine,' so it's lucky the engine was in perfect condition –
although Lee only gets 8mpg.
'She isn't economical but she's a one of a kind' he said.
With media exposure already in the bag from ITV, BBC and radio, the
bookings, interest and feedback on this luxury limousine has been
nationwide in a matter of days!
And appropriately enough, Mr Russell's first booking for "Mary" is
for a posse of Cambridgeshire policewomen looking for a hot night

We can now reveal the full details of our latest completed project,
which is to be showcased at Truckfest.
Its a Green Goddess fire engine with a difference, as we have
converted the fire engine into a luxury eight seater limousine.
It features faux leather and suede custom upholstery throughout, two
Champagne bars, music video player, top of the range sound system
and custom lighting effects.
At a flick of a couple of switches, this classic looking interior
can transform into a mini nightclub.
We will be joining our friends at
www.alternativelimos.co.uk on Sunday and Monday at Truckfest to
launch the customised Green Goddess, so it would be great to see
Awesome visitors old and new too.
Awesome new project gets BBC interest.
Awesome had the pleasure this week of Mike Cartwright from BBC Look
Mike and his team spent the morning filming our latest project,
which is an old RAF green goddess fire engine.
The project consists of totally transforming the standard fireman
cab interior into a fully functional commercial interior.
That's all we can disclose at this early stage, but we anticipate
the interior to be finished by late January / mid February 2008.
The vehicle will then be filmed again to view the transformation,
and then go out on air sometime in February.
Further details will follow.
Thanks again to Mike and his team.

Congratulations to Paul & Yana for winning this years "Best
Interior" trophy, sponsored by Awesome.
They also walked away with the Awesome Body Bag prize, which I'm
told was in full use on Sunday evening by Yana after a full weekend
of showing their splitty to the adoring crowds.
Originally from the US, this Awesome example of a LHD splitty, came
complete with a custom interior created in the states.
This included fluted brown fabric mixed with brown faux leather on
the seating and door cards, plus a suede headlining.
Paul & Yana have added their own touches to the vehicle though,
which included removing the old deep piled carpet and replacing this
with faux laminate flooring throughout, curtains, some upholstery,
dash mounted multimedia centre and a hand built corner cupboard made
by Paul from an old IKEA blind!
These slight touches have really complemented, updated and given the
interior of the bus a real facelift.
Above all though, they have successfully spliced the interior to the
exterior in a style which is their own, but is also accessible to
most peoples capabilities and budgets.

They asked us to supply them with a special Manchester United
Body Bag to add to a themed children's bedroom design their
doing for a show which was broadcast today.
The Body Bag is white one side and red the other.
The background on today's makeover family is as follows :-
Mark and Heidi
tragically lost their daughter Mollie to leukaemia last year - which
was very difficult for all the family.
Heidi nursed Mollie as her condition deteriorated and they both
stopped work in order to spend more time with the children.
Mark describes Heidi is a giving person, who always helps others and
who loves surprising people.
Mark now thinks its time to surprise Heidi and has called in the 60
Minute Makeover team to re-vamp their 3 bed semi!
We hope Cameron and Nathan enjoy the Body Bag and we wish all the
family the very best for the future.

forwarded to us and published online.
In a word - "she is one of the best VW interiors we have had the
pleasure in creating".
Full leather interior..... no that's already too much information.
