Interior shop needed.

Post by Gazoo on Fri Jun 12, 2015 10:24 am

Seems I'll be looking for an interior shop, to replace the complete interior in my Duster.
This sucks, as it was the original, and it showed near perfect.
I can't get the exact same interior from Legendary Interiors, as the original seats (deluxe interior) have silver inserts, not charcoal inserts.

Any recommendations on a shop in the Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph area, within an hour drive. Or places to stay away from.
I can't do the work myself, if the insurance covers me.

Thanks for the feedback.

Giles

For the first time since I've owned the car (almost 30 yrs), I stored it off my property.
When I went to get it in mid-May, the complete interior was covered in MOLD, and I mean completely covered, it looks like it was sprayed.

Don't know why, as it's not a damp storage garage, it a huge building in good condition, with ceiling fans. There's probably 100 cars stored there.
I'm wondering if it's a result of the different cleaning/protecting products I used last year.

I always leave my windows down a crack and the doors and trunk lid not fully latched, so to not compress the seals and make them hardened, then I throw my car cover over it.

The only other thing I did different was, I threw a lot more Bounce sheets in the car, to try and keep rodents away, since I couldn't check on the car over the winter.

The good news is the insurance did come through, which I was really surprised. They are even willing to let me do the work myself, which for the most part, I can handle.
The problem is, I just don't have time to do it, with the home reno projects I have on the go.

I've been using the same friend for 30 years when it comes to my interior seats etc...He has a full time job, but does interior stuff at his home shop on the side. He's one of the best....Not sure if you want to go that route, but if you decide to....Call Scott Davis 905 407 6569. He's located on the lake shore in East Burlington ON

Well Giles, I would call that hard luck. Talking of luck, insurance wise you were lucky, but mold...MAN that is not good.

There's a guy at Apple Auto Glass in Listowel that does that stuff. He did my headliner and did an absolutely perfect job. Don't recall his name but I'm sure reception there will know.

My dilemma is trying to restore the interior back to it's original look. Legendary Interiors has the best reputation (as far as I know).

So far; 1) The seat insert aren't the same color.

2) The door panels are not exactly the same, seems I'll have to use bench style door panels in a bucket seat car, so it has the wood grain.

3) The rear armrests don't come with ashtrays anymore.

4) The seat belts are generic.

Etc...

As long as the whole package still looks good that is all you want.

I just put a complete Legendary interior in mine, also had to use door panels with wood grain. Looks nice in my opinion. I also figured since no one is or would be allowed to smoke in my car ash trays were the least of my worries. But then my car didn't come with rear arm rests or ash trays at all.  PG Classics has the panels without the wood grain, however these panels are not cut out for any handles or window cranks also not drilled for arm rests., they say they leave this to the customer as a lot of people are customizing their cars. I believe the quality won't be the same.

I pulled the interior out yesterday, and put the Spray Nine and a scrub brush to it, then used Meguiar's vinyl cleaner and protectant. It came out looking really good, but still has some spots where you can see small white veins in the vinyls pattern. The mold will inevitably come back, but at least I can drive it until the fabric and the shop are ready.
