We often find ourselves having to re-create an entire interior based on a tattered previous example. This leads to re-creating everything from hand-laid fiberglass panels, to ordering several cowhides that are custom-dyed and tanned to create a perfect match.
Our artisans then match everything from existing pleats to perforations to piping. Nothing is left out, so even the tiniest bit of leather inside a door handle matches just right.
Many restorations or even smaller interior jobs are dictated by the value of the car, and of course, the preferences of you, the owner. So if you want to do a totally custom, one-off interior for your classic, we are your shop. At the same time, if your resto calls for completely stock, we can do that as well. Our interiors have won awards from Amelia Island, Cavallino and many other prestigious award shows.
This long-distance project came to us from out west. The black 308GTS was ready for a restoration - starting with the interior. Here we see the poorly recovered and tired seats.
We started by carefully removing the old covers that were glued to the foam. The foam itself needed to be restored as well.
Using some of the original cushions, our in-house trimmer custom-fitted brand new foam to build the new seats on.
Here, the perfect-matching stock material has been stitched into the new seat pattern. Every stitch and cut is done under our roof.
Here, the seat is complete. The metal hardware was refurbished as well. We also worked on the door cards and the dashboard.
Our interiors tech also re-created the door panel pockets with all new materials. You can see here how the old hardware was put back to use for a perfect stock look.
Here is the interior of this unique vintage racer. It had been successfully raced in the 1950s and 60s. Our goal was a world-class restoration.
Here is the completed interior. All work was done in-house. Including sourcing a near-perfect match for the original upholstery.
We were able to find a tiny sample of original interior that was beneath the arm rest on the original door. It was a unique elephant hide texture in an off-white.
Here's a before image of the binnacle/dashboard. An astonishing amount of research and part-finding went into this restoration.
Here we see the end result. Everything was either completely reconditioned in-house, or we were able to source NOS parts. (New Old Stock)
Every part of the interior was redone, including straps, tools and interior carpet. We also completed this build in record time to make it to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
