Leather Hides
First quality, fresh, whole hides are produced daily that conform to automotive specifications and are available in three grain styles and a variety of colors.
Color and grain on the web is an accurate duplication vs. actual.
Slight manufacturing variation exists from batch to batch but product is inspected to master for color approval prior to shipment.
"Natural leather markings" exist on all hides in a random fashion. Careful planning of your patterns will allow a "natural" mark to be placed in an area that is not prominent.
Typical yield on any size hide is 60 to 65%.
When planning your interior job it is important to decide how many square feet you want to cover. Allow for fold over areas and seams, etc. Divide your required total square feet by 0.625 to consider yield. Knowing the average size of a hide, you can then determine the number of whole hides required to do the job.
In talking to many trim shops they always buy 1 extra hide up front... just in case.
Lead time for orders is approximately 4 weeks from payment authorization approval. If an order is cancelled before processing is completed there is a 40% restocking fee.

Sound Damper
Sound damper helps to reduce sound and vibration from external sources. It can also reduce heat flow into the vehicle by covering all small holes.
Sound damper sheeting should be the first application to your pre-cleaned interior floor and trunk floor.
This product should be used inside each door and to cover wheel wells on the inside of the trunk.
As you cover the passenger floor be sure to go as far up the cowl as possible.
After cleaning each surface simply peel off the brown paper backing and press sheet firmly to apply.
The foil surface is always the outer surface.

Heat Insulation Pad
Insulation pad reduces heat and sound from external sources.
Insulation should be used to cover your entire passenger and trunk compartment. Again, go as far up the cowl as possible.
Insulation should also be used behind each fabricated panel.
Insulation pad is applied on top of the sound damper directly under the carpet floor covering.

Felt Tape
Avoid unnecessary squeak and rattle noise by using this product between mating surfaces.
This black felt can also be used to cover the interior of glove boxes or other cavities you create.
After cleaning each surface simply peel off the brown paper backing and press felt firmly to apply.

Plastic Retainers
Extruded polypropylene and polyethylene retainers are for finishing seat cover trim. These clips replace hog rings.
The D975 style is used when the trim close-out can tolerate being seen. Two lengths of D975 are used, one sewn on each side of the trim being joined, then snapped together.
The D721 and D687 style is used when the trim close-out needs to be hidden. One length of each style is sewn to the trim being joined, then snapped together.
The D305 style is used to attach to seat wire. This is sewn to the cover and then pulled over the wire.
A flat style, D1192, is available and used for push pin reinforcement. This can also be used to create straight trim edges.
