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.

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.

Hey guys hope you’re having a great day. I have a question about the choke heater tube. Mine is loose at the intake and seems to be causing a vacuum leak. Any thoughts on how to seal this up?

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
