Interior vendor preference

Hi all,

I'm contemplating updating my interior "covers", door panels and all for my 69 but I'm having a hard time deciding which vendor to use. Mostly for accuracy's sake since some say their color is white while others say Parchment with is supposed to be accurate for a 69.

I've seen Legendary and PUI material suppliers.

I am definitely going to update the seat foam so I'm also thinking about the "covers".

Question to you gentlemen is - who did you use, are you happy with the product and why/why not.

Thanks in advance, Dan

I used Legendary seat covers on my 68 and I highly recommend them.
Excellent fit, heavy and correct grained vinyl, no wrinkles and they were really nice to work with.

A "vendor" sells what another makes. As far as "manufacturers," I prefer Legendary over PUI simply because of a really bad customer service incident I had with PUI*. Also, be aware that PUI sells different panels with different levels of quality, so when you compare prices be sure that you are comparing similar quality panels (and not just which panels are the least expensive).

* PUI literally stuffed the panels into the shipping boxes and Oops (UPS) damaged them -- twice (and when I contacted PUI they were a b!tch to work with). The Legendary panels ship in Oops-proof boxes with lots of protection.

From my personal experience, there is "Legendary" and then there's "everyone else". The difference in quality is significant.

Thanks BearGFR. seems Legendary is most popular.

Part of what Red1970GTO said resonated with me. He mentioned there is a quality level option which led to part of my confusion on cost etc.

I've installed both Legendary and PUI and Legendary is far better in terms of fit and feel. Legendary will also outlast PUI.

When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

Legendary interiors are the same exact fit, quality, and appearance as the factory interior. I've had one in my '67 ragtop for 21 years, and it still looks like new. The other brands I would not even consider. The older I get, the faster I get tired of working with crap.

My door panels and dash pad are original to the car, but I used Legendary covers for the seats back in 1999/2000 and they still look great.
