It's not really upholstery, but......
« on: July 25, 2008, 05:30:02 PM »

Has any one ever removed or repaired the textured coating from the back of the metal seatbacks on a 65 Chrysler, and if so - how?  I have some scratches and gouges on mine, and am trying to find a way to repair them. Stitcher, any ideas? Think of the backs in Big Red.

Oh this is interesting! Did this ever get answered?
The "restoration shop" that had my 64 300 damaged both backs for the front seats. Looks like they dropped them, or they fell, they're both dented and the mouldings are damaged. Both of them even have a brown patch on top. I've got a Legendary Interior Kit to redo the seats but how do I repair this? Do those mouldings just pop off the seat back?
Think this is something the upholstery guys could do stitcherbob or better to take it to a body shop.
 
I've attached six photos so you can see what I'm talking about.

Wow....this got lost somehow...

I didn't get to see Steve's seat backs up close....is it a texture or a defined grain like vinyl? If it's just a rough texture there is a product  from SEM called Texture Spray in an aerosol can. It looks like black undercoating when sprayed but acts like a thick vinyl paint (I use it as a sandable primer surfacer on vinyl repairs...) If it is grained, then only something like the Just Dashes process of molding heated unbacked vinyl over the backs will make them look like that again. Don't know about the chrome..but it will have to come off to hammer and dolly the metal back into shape....

The seat backs on a '65 300 are actualy vinyl skinned from the factory.  Mine were sunbaked and peeling in spots.  I had them reskinned by Just Dashes and dyed to match my seat upholstery.

Those look really good, but I was thinking more along the lines of repairing the cut and scuffed vinyl for the not so perfect seatbacks. Also changing the colour from black to white.  By the way, good to see you here. Now your car can haunt me on four sites

Yeah. . .Just look at your car with a white interior and a roof.  I have 2 of them.  One is for parts.  The other I got from Arazona from Azblackhemi.  Snakes and all

I'm sorry. . I didn't answer that properly
 
I have a 65 2 door in your color and a white interior.  So far, all I have done is shove a 413 into it
