Has anyone here bought something from sms auto fabrics? I'm thinking about getting door panels from them but I've read some troubling reviews.

I think they're based in Oregon. They make interior parts for a lot of 50's and 60's cars.

I've been lucky with them and they managed to produce correct reproduction fabric, vinyl, and carpet for my Hudson. But my friend John recently had his car re-done and the fabric, vinyl, and carpet were close but all incorrect reproductions. I think it may be hit or miss and you have to communicate with them. They are somewhat expensive. I don't know how they do with door panels.

Thanks VerVynck, as long as the replacement material is close to original, I'm okay with that. I am mainly looking to obtain door panels for my 57 Belvedere and the photos they sent look pretty good. Did you receive your order in a timely manner?

Yes, but if they don't have the fabric you're looking for, they have to make it, and I don't know how long that takes.

The biggest problem I've read about is long delays in receiving product, like 6 months or longer.

Unless they don't have it in stock and have to make it, they should send it to you immediately.

I ordered finished door panels and material for the seat covers February 2011 and had to wait 20 months. Not caused by the vinyl and cloth material but the door panels. Although they came out very nice I cannot recommend ordering them. I am by far not the only one who had to wait that long.
My advice: Save your old interior, only order the material and let the panels be made by a good upholsterer. They can do it! The SMS panels are not unique art.

20 months! That's ridiculous . I guess I could have a local shop make panels but I like the fact that the SMS ones have the mylar material like the originals, I don't know if other upholstery shops will do that.

You can also order that mylar material from SMS, no problem. Or you can use that stuff called "diamond reflective foil" for plants that comes pretty close.

Thanks for the info Andy. Did SMS say there would be a long delivery wait?

No, they did not. They said it would be approximately 8 months, justified by the large amount of orders they always have. I read over at the FL.net that there is only one guy who makes the door panels.
