  PLEASE READ!

ALL OF OUR PRODUCTS ARE MADE IN THE USA!!

 

 

 

 

 


 

ALL OF OUR PRODUCTS ARE VACUUM FORMED OUT OF ABS PLASTIC EVEN THE VINYL ONES ARE ABS WITH VINYL COVERING. 

 

PROCESS FOR VACUUM FORMING ABS PLASTIC

VACUUM FORMING IS A PROCESS IN WHICH A SHEET OF PLASTIC IS HEATED (NOT MELTED LIKE INJECTION MOLDING WHERE PLASTIC IS MORE BRITTLE).  THEN TAKEN OUT OF THE HEAT AND PLACED OVER A MOLD, AT THIS TIME VACUUM IS USED TO WRAP THE HEATED PLASTIC OVER THE MOLD TO FORM TO THE SHAPE OF THE MOLD.  ONCE IT IS COOLED IT IS TAKEN OUT OF THE MACHINE AND TRIMMED AND FINISHED.

 

PROCESS FOR VINYL    

AFTER THE PART HAS BEEN VACUUM FORMED THEN THE PART GETS A SPRAY OF SPECIAL GLUE.  THEN THE PART GOES BACK TO THE VACUUM FORMING MACHINE WHERE THE VINYL IS HEATED AND FORMED OVER THE PART (JUST LIKE THE VACUUM FORMING METHOD MENTION ABOVE).  THE HEAT IS REQUIRED FOR A PERMANENT BOND TO THE PLASTIC PART.        

 

UNDERSTANDING PART NUMBERS

WE TRIED TO KEEP OUR PART NUMBERS AS SHORT AND SIMPLE, BUT THE MORE PARTS WE MAKE THE MORE COMPLICATED IT BECOMES. 

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE:  MIQT69-0

M IS FOR MUSTANG

I IS FOR INTERIOR

QT IS FOR QUARTER TRIM

69-0 IS FOR THE NUMBER OF YEARS

SO MIQT69-0 IS MUSTANG INTERIOR QUARTER TRIM FOR 1969 THRU 1970 MUSTANGS.

 

FOR THE VINYL COVERED ITEMS V FOLLOWED BY THE COLOR CHOICE M=MARBLE, P=PORCELAIN AND B=BLACK (NOTE: IF V IS ONLY THERE WITH NO OTHER LETTERS AFTER IT, THEN IT IS BLACK ) IS ADDED BETWEEN THE LETTERS AND NUMBERS.

 

OBVIOUSLY THERE ARE MORE LETTERS THAT REPRESENT OTHER CHOICES, SO READ THE PLEASE READ SECTION ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF EACH PAGE.
