Everything from plumbing to upholstery, walls, floors— shoot, you name it & we do it. Call us when you are looking for something, we may have it or can at least point you in a direction. We don’t just sell you parts, we give our years of information away for free! We’re here to help.
Vinyls are made for application. Some uses need the material to be floppy, others stiff. Some need it to be supple some want to be stiff. Some vinyl’s have texture others are slick, some will stretch and deform others will not. All vinyl is not created equal and neither are their price. You can spend $40 dollars a yard for more with names names you will recognize. Be carefull to now use a certain material just because you have heard of it. Select a material that suits your use.
Some say they want their entire interior of real leather, boy thats a pile of cows giving their all and boy will that drill a hole in your wallet! You also need to remember that colored leather is sold in dye lots so to get the same dyed color, you have to purchase all of the leather from the same dye lot and forget about ever matching it later.
After a decade of refinishing the interior of GMC motohomes, we here at the Co-op have settled on one material that does everything we look for. It stretches well so we can refinish the dash pads, glue likes it so we use it on headliner and wall panels, it wears well and feels supple so all of our upholstery is done with it and when it comes to wrapping small intricate parts it bents and stretches to the shape we need.
The stuff is nicknamed “pleather” or plastic leather. The best part is the price, we offer this material for $21 yard. Thats much less than the high dollar vinyls and wears and feels great. Most people think it is leather until I tell them different— hey, maybe I shouldn’t say anything! Here is a sample card of the colors available in this material. There are many vinyls out there & I am sure there are others that will work well in this application but I am pleased with this product and pleased with its price. If you are interested in some, give us a call.

Driver foot mat
Does it like this? Well then never fear— Uncle Al’s driver foot mats are here!!! A good friend and devoted GMC owner has found a nifty way to offer us a fantastic looking custom replacement molded foot mat, thanks man. They are $95 each. Just got these in so if you have interest give me a call, I expect these will fly out the door right away.

Driver floor well carpet mat
Our upholstery has come up with a nifty carpet floor at that covers the original driver footwell. Held down with Velcro and wrapping the steering column……a very neat thing….easy to install to cover a bad rubber footwell or protect you good one! Either way it’s a good thing. Price is $75, we have them on the shelf in black and taupe. We can also make custom material…..
Seats are NOT created equal. If your back is like mine, I can tell you if a seat is good or not in about 1 hour! I have tried many seat builders and have settled on these.
In that we use these seats in our full restorations, I have them custom built with our own materials. Go to Seats for info on the seats and sofas available.
Overhead door hinge that works
Tired of getting wacked on the head when your overhead door falls? Do you have so many brackets, lifts, springs and stuff scientifically designed to keep that door out of your way that they actually get in your way? This hinge pair will hold your 3/4″ solid overhead door closed AND open . Yes, there is a modification you will have to do to the side openings of the cabinet (add @ 3/4″ of surface– study the pic) but its not hard and you will then be able to throw all of that other hardware away. These are $24 a pair (1 pair does one door). These overhead hinges now have an adjustible tension feature which really helps set up for different sized doors. I try to keep these in stock although you guys are doing your best to buy all I have so call with a little lead time if you are interested.
You KNOW we have so many other parts and ideas…..give us a call.
