Restoration of Existing Trim Panels

Existing interior panels worn, torn, or had holes cut for speakers?

As well as full interior restorations, we can bring old vinyl back to life and restore panels to original condition if damaged. For example, this 1968 door card is a one-year only design with patterned inlays heat-seamed in place at the factory. Often there are holes cut through the vinyl for speakers, tears from use or vinyl embrittlement, or moisture damage to the card. For some, this may be considered almost irreplaceable, and a reproduction part may have been the only replacement option.

The tooling that forms the heat seam cannot be reproduced without significant investment, and the basketweave pattern for example is no longer available in some of the original vinyl colour schemes. In most cases, we can save the original material, or rebuild a new panel from donor material, preserving the authentic, original look.

Interior Trim Colour Matching

For those hard-to-find colours, we can bond and colour-match to any shade of plain and patterned vinyls. Note, this is not a paint treatment, but a true dye that penetrates into the vinyl itself to provide a permanent colour change.

Above is an example of a finished door card, constructed from donor material and rebuilt to preserve the heat-seamed inlays and the original 1968 door pocket features.
