What is the thickness/weight of your vinyl?
In order to secure the best possible grains and color matches, Legendary uses several key quality suppliers. Most of our vinyl weighs between 32-36oz depending upon application, cloth backing, expansion and supplier. In addition, all Legendary vinyl meets Flammability Code Standards FMVSS302
Is your upholstery easy to install?
Due to the varying skill set of our customers and enthusiasts this question is difficult to answer. Our sewn products are made with expanded vinyl which is much easier to handle and work with during the installation process. For additional installation tips, tricks, and techniques please refer to our installation videos as well as our Technical Support department.
Can you recommend a trim shop in my area?
Legendary Auto Interiors, Ltd. does not generally recommend individual upholstery, trim or
restoration shops to customers because we cannot guarantee the quality and consistency of the work they perform.
We suggest contacting several shops for estimates on the specific kind of work to be done. Many shops may only specialize in a particular brand such as Chrysler, Chevrolet or Ford products. Also, ask around your area at car shows, cruise nights or car club meets as well as web forums for information on reputable shops in your area. Although experience can be an asset, the shop with “40 years of experience” is not always your best choice. Do your homework before turning your pride and joy and your costly replacement parts over to anyone! If you do not have auto trim shop services in your area, our experienced, full service shop can perform all necessary frame up interior restoration as well as other product installation services.
How do I maintain my new upholstery that I have purchased?
All Legendary Auto Interiors, Ltd. products may be cleaned with a mild soap and warm water solution. Never scrub or use any kind of harsh pads, brushes or detergents. After cleaning with mild soap and water, lightly clean again with an industrial grade wax and grease remover (contact your local auto parts store). Allow surface to dry.
LIGHTLY mist with the vinyl protectant of your choice not exposed to sun light. On leather upholstery applications we recommend using a high-quality mink oil, neatsfoot oil and/or leather wax. Hand apply, let stand 30-60 minutes and then wipe/buff clean. DO NOT USE SILICONE BASED PRODUCTS as they will deteriorate the thread and dry out the leather.
Do you carry Dyes, Paints and Adhesives?
No. Currently we do not offer any Paints, Dyes or Adhesives. Please check with your local automotive parts supplier.
If I buy my seat covers now and my door panels at a later date, will they match?
Legendary does it’s very best to maintain that all dye lots will be matched as closely as possible. Due to the nature of the color matching process it is impossible to guarantee an exact match. For this reason, Legendary Auto Interiors, Ltd. strongly recommends that all items are ordered at the same time.
Who makes your interior parts?
Legendary Auto Interiors has been proudly manufacturing interior soft trim products in the USA since 1985. Legendary Auto Interiors, Ltd has always maintained a strong commitment to keep jobs in the USA.
What is NOS and do you send samples?
NOS means “New Old Stock”. These materials are original to a specific year and have a specific manufacturer’s seal printed on the back.
NOS samples can be requested and will be sent once we have researched and located the materials. This is TOTALLY dependent upon availability. These materials are subjected to limited availability and in some instances they may never be available. It is best to contact our Sample Request Department directly when inquiring about NOS samples.
Are NOS materials more expensive?
Yes! NOS materials can cost significantly more than the price of a regular kit. This is due to the exclusive nature and limited availability of the material(s).
