Default Good & Cheap Door Panel Installer in Boulder/Denver Area?

I've got some door panels from a leather kit to install in my 02 WRX wagon. Turns out, I kinda suck at it (already tried one myself). So I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good (and cheap?) auto upholstry shop in the Boulder/Denver area. Or maybe you've already done it and would be interested in providing assistance on the install (with appropriate compensation, of course).

Thanks.

It's not really a blatant screw-up, in my case. The panel is installed, but the fit/finish of the new material is rather poor, I think. The corner nearest the B pillar isn't tight, and I have a gap on the uppper edge (the corner that supposedly "tucks" into the existing groove in the panel). Basically, it looks kinda half-assed, despite the fact that I spent 3 hours on one door.

Similar results for me. The material was smooth and looked good. I cut the whole pannel off the door, so I was able to get the material in pretty good at the top with no gap. Now though it is starting to peel off from the top and looks like total a$$.

Well I did one door last nite

Things went pretty smoothly, I'm just going to wait a few days before I start on the others to see if the top starts peeling like you guys mentioned
