  • Soft Corinthian Leather or is it Vinyl?

    I scored a set of leather seats for my 76 Cordoba. They are out of another 76 a guy is parting out. They are in decent shape, but will need to be redyed. I was wondering though if my suspicions are correct in assuming that the leather is only the inserts on the seat and the seatbacks of the seats, and not the trim portions or head rest areas. Is that correct? I want to make sure I prep them correctly and don't want to mess up either the leather or vinyl by using the wrong cleaners and prep materials. As always, any input is appreciated.

        CHY, don't feel bad about pics not posting, I can't either. Some on here will condemn you for that, others will send you their cell fone number so you can send them that way.

            What I really want to know is there something anyone would recommend to prep the vinyl parts that might not be used on the leather parts and vice versa? I don't want to ruin either. So, if I knew what parts were vinyl and what parts were leather that would be helpful.

            One other thing, under posting permissions, below, it says that I may not post attachments.

            How does one go about getting the permission to post attachments?

            Just wondering

            Thanks

                Forgive the hand-drawn nature of this photo, and using a rear seat for reference, but I think you'll get the idea.



                The area inside the yellow line is leather. Everything else is vinyl. Thus, "leather seating surfaces".

                And yes, there will be specific cleaners and conditioners for each. There's good care and product info. here.

                Pricey? Yes, but just drop in your local upholstery shop and get a quote on replacing that leather. Proper care is definitely a good investment.

                    Dave -

                    Thanks again for your help. I agree, I know I would be paying through the nose to have them re-upholstered, so I wanted to make sure I don't screw anything up when I try to clean and prep them for the color change.

                    I only wish I could figure out how to get my pictures to post (or get the proper authorizations).

                    Thanks again to all for your help.

                      My 76 seems to have a little different seats from the picture. Canadian Cordoba and all original. Pictures in the garage if this doesn't show.

                        Interesting...you got more leather than I did in '77! LOL

                        Actually, IIRC, those look a lot like my 71/72 Charger seats. But to be fair, I haven't seen them in 20 years, so my memory may be off.

                          I believe SEM has the proper prep and paints for doing interior work. It's all in the prep.
