Leather / Vinyl repair...found a really good company!

I wanted to share the following...my interior overall is not bad and does not to be replaced but needed some TLC. At a recent car show a vendor called Fibrenew made a nice presentation and said they would come to my home and started work to repair issues with my interior and to re-dye my leather back to original. The guy really took his time and made my backseat look like new. He will be back to finish the front seat. I'm amazed at what he was able to do to fix the cracking in the leather and how well he matched colors to make everything blend.

Yes I'm very happy with the work performed. The company is fibrenew and I believe Jason posted their information on the parts supplier page. They are nation wide so you should be able to find a location near you.

Kevin, can you tell the name of the company? Your interor look outstanding. Are you still happy with it? Thanks Dave

Jason...they will give you an estimate and they stuck to it.  It cost me $450.00 and I'm estimating he spent every bit of 10+ hours working on the front and back.  They will come to your house and do all the work.  Best of all they stand behind their work you do not pay until your happy with the results.  I went this route because I just could not justify having the interior replaced when the fabric all still looked great, carpet is good, headliner is good it was just the leather that was the problem.

At this time I really don't need to do anything to the arm rests...while not perfect they still look very good.

Amazing results......Looks great!!

Kevin, This is fantastic. What is the cost like on redoing the front and rear seats?  My original leather is actually not bad but do have a left arm rest top that is showing signs of wear. Are you having anything done to door panels or arm rest.   Again very curious about cost and how they charge...by the hr or by the job?

This company can do some amazing things with vinyl and leather that you would never think possible.

Wow I wish I had met this guy before all the cracks in my seat turned to tears.

I wanted to follow up with everyone with some before and after photos.  All I can say is WOW...feel like I have new interior.

I posted a link to this message thread on our help page under Vinyl & Leather Repair and put a link to Fibrenew in our Parts Suppliers page.

Comment by Kevin Williams on September 27, 2012 at 10:35am

They are a national company with locations around the US and the World

Website is www.fibrenew.com

I will post before and after pictures once complete...the job has stalled due to wet conditions.  I took the car out last night to our local Cadillac Club Meeting and the members were impressed with how the back seat looked compared to the front seat.

Flashers

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 2 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…

I would like to upholster my caddy back to original.   Does anyone know where I can look at some pictures or photos.  Also, how hard is it to remove the dash?  thanks
