67 Biscayne interior vendors??????
Permalink  
 


Here's the deal - see a TON of stuff for Impala's of the 67 variety but Biscayne/Belair seem to be the  ( forgive me) "Red Headed stepchildren" of that year and we get left out -

I found a supplier for the Medium Fawn cloth interior fabric but... door panels/dash panels seem to be gold only as close as they get if they even list a Biscayne/Belair...

What gives...?? drop some info on me and I'll be forever grateful!

Tim, as far as dash pads and pillar cover , I used Just Dashes out of California. I had them do my door panels also.I don't know if it was just my stuff, but I waited 2 years for the door panels! The dash pad and pillar covers only about 6 weeks.

68 bel, did you send them your old door panels to redo? Or order complete panels?

I ask because SEM will redo door panels but only have the soft materials to do it. You have to supply the hard plastic and metal parts that also make up the panels. They can't make complete from scratch.

Tim, do you have original panels to send out to get redone or are you missing door panels completely?

Kevin,I had to send them my old parts (door panels,dash pad,pillar post pads). Another little bit of information is I had a hard time finding the rear armrest pads.I could have sent them out and had them recovered but after studying catalogs,I noticed that the 70 chevelles had the same shape of rear arm rest pad that I had.They were cheap and you could get them in many colors! So I tried them and YES they fit! So on some of these parts that are needed for these post sedans,you gotta get creative and do some cross-reference.IMG_20160821_094713_903[1].jpg

I am fortunate I have all the panels - nothing is damaged other than the crack in the dash and some age or ? darkening on the door panels and cracks in the armrests.
The A pillar plastic covers are fragmented but held in place w their screws.
Seems Med Fawn being the most prolific is the least duplicated... I have a good friend who does upholstery - did my 48 and we will just have to match the stuff on the dash and armrests. door panels....may have to re-dye. I hate doing that because it never seems to be durable or matching completely. We shall see!
