Many of us in Bridgend own nice cars but to keep it that way you have to look after the interior trim as well as the exterior paintwork.
A new car does not usually need any car interior repairs unless you have an accident but as it grows older, you will need to pay it more attention.
The dashboard, leather items, carpets, seat covers, door panels, will often need to be either refurbished or repaired.
Car interior repairs can range from painting the dashboard or leather seats with a specialist leather or vinyl paint that has been designed to do the job properly.
It is always best to call in an expert repair company like Trimtastick at Bridgend but if you have no one local and you do decide to have a go at DIY repairs then this guide should help you. Purchase products from a reputable company that specialises in the supply of SMART repair products.
When repairing trim preparation is very important, first of all, remove all the parts that you can and wash them in warm water with a mild soap solution added to it. Avoid getting water near any electrical connectors or components.
Use a soft cloth to clean the other interior parts such as steering wheel, door panels, dashboard, etc. Cover the other areas then rub the plastic parts and affected area with a fine-grade sand paper.
Again clean up and apply good quality of plastic prep solution on the areas you want to paint PlastiC Prep is a degreaser and bonding agent. Allow to dry and finally apply the proper re-paint color that is specially designed for your car type. A vinyl repair kit is often the best option.
It is not always the case that you need a professional to do the car interior repair. The minor problems can be solved on your own. All types of company kits and manuals are available in the market. Well, one thing is sure the minor problem is the cause of major difficulty in future. Hence, it is important to detect them and repair in the first stage itself.
Car Interior Repair
Dash repairs are still often caused by accidental damage usually from careless passengers and occasionally from bored children.
We have repaired dashes that have been scuffed or scratched and even one or two that have been vandalised with a cigarette lighter!
Dash damage is sometimes caused by spillages from liquid type air-fresheners some of them severely damage plastic trim and even melt the top surface of plastic if left on there for any length of time.
Some of the plastic trim panels have a wood, chrome or silver finish and are not possible to repair. If you regularly use air fresheners in your car make sure they are not leaking when you place them in the air vent!

Leather repair is often used on todays luxury cars.
Leather repairs are often carried out on leather seats as they are easily scratched, it is so easy to catch the leather with a belt, zip or the studs from your jeans.
We can restore your leather.
Leather seat restoration is sometimes referred to as re-connolising a term that has been widely used in the restoration of auto leather interiors but was actually derived from Connolly Leather who were incredibly protective of their name & reputation for quality when still trading.
Connolly Leather ceased trading after more than 125 years of supplying quality finished leather to customers such as the British Royal Family, Rolls Royce & Bentley, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Lotus to name few. Many contracts used their leather over the years such as The House of Commons, The House of Lords, The British Museum, QE2 as well as many prestigious hotels & buildings around the World.
There name is being kept alive by a company that was started by former employees of Connolly leather who are now producing Connolly branded leather care products
