Auto Interior Repairs
Auto Upholstery by AJ has over 30 years of experience in repairing and building custom seat covers. Most people don’t even realize that seats can be repaired right back to original condition, so it is important to have the seat repair performed by a professional interior technician. After years of comfort, leather seats can start to wear in some places. The most common area of wear is on the driver’s seat, which receives the most frequent activity. Most modern car seats are created by combining several different pieces of material or “panels”. Due to this type of design, we can replace only the damaged “panels” of the seat while using OEM leather that is color matched. We stock many common seat fabrics that match late model patterns, and have 48 hour access to seat fabric for 90% of the material manufactured. We can replace individual panels or the entire seat. Once the seat has been disassembled we can:
- Change padding density for a softer or firmer feel.
- Install custom seat heaters for cloth, vinyl or leather seats.
- Install optional adjustable lumbar support cages.
Additional Services Offered:
- Insert Replacement – Suede, Leather or Vinyl
- Frame – Recliner – Track Assembly Repair & Replacement
- Installation of Customer Provided Seat Covers

Headliner and Visor Material Replacement
1. Late Model Board With Foam Backed Covering
2. Late Model Board With Foam Backed Covering and Sunshade
3. Older Style Bow – Type Headliner
One of the major problems common to virtually all late-model cars is the sagging headliner. Because the original headliner material is foam backed, over a period of time the foam backing starts to disintegrate and leaves a dust residue causing the fabric to drop loose from the headliner board. Correcting the sagging headliner involves a multi step process that will restore it to like “new” condition. The headliners and visors are the last thing most car owners think of repairing. If the interior roof is in need of repair we suggest you take another look at your headliner and bring it to AJ’s for replacement. Auto Upholstery By AJ can also fabricate a headliner for antiques and custom restoration projects. Call us at 818-886-2510 for a quote!

Automotive Vinyl Flooring
There are times when carpeting is not the appropriate floor covering for a vehicle. From the pickups and SUVs that spend their time off-road or at the construction site to taxies shuttling people through the city, vinyl flooring is the heavy-duty alternative.
Sound Deadeners help insulate your vehicle from road noise. Sound barriers are available in EVA, foil back or mastic with jute and are custom made to fit each model perfectly. Sound deadeners meet federal standards for flammability retardation. It’s the perfect beginning when replacing your carpet and to increase its durability.
Floor Mats custom made to fit any vehicle
Floor mats can improve the look of a vehicle’s interiors with very little effort. They are designed to be an exact replacement for OEM floor mats. We offer over 6,000 styles in the original colors and materials. Our mats come in two and four piece sets and have the Griplock, non-skid backing. We currently offer over 180 licensed embroidered logos. You can mix and match the carpet and binding colors to create a unique floor mat to suit your style.
Trunk Mats for your Classic Car
We manufacture our trunk mats from the original materials in the correct patterns, styles and colors. They are available in fleece, felt, foam, bertex and vinyl. Our vinyl mats are printed on 6.5-ounce heavy vinyl and then are die-cut or vacuum molded for a perfect fit. We have carefully duplicated many of the popular trunk mat patterns to meet or exceed OE recommendations.
