I am looking for your opinions on SMS upholstery work. If you have positive feedback, it is OK to put on this website. If you have other feedback, please PM me
THANKS

I think with SMS there are Two categories to consider; the one you mentioned "upholstery work" meaning finished Seat/Door/Floor covers and "Automotive Interior Materials".

Everyone seems very happy with the later, you don't hear much about the former,:ohmy: except long lead time which is to be expected with a smaller Co.

Thanks StudeRich
I should have been more clear. I am interested in the "Automotive Interior Materials" and also about the carpet. Does Doug form the carpet for a given car, and how is the fit? Thanks to all for your help

I live very near SMS and talk to car guys every year at the annual Canby Cruise-in about them. Most of what I have heard has been very positive. They seem to have a wide selection and most of the time they can get you what you need in a timely manner. Lately I have heard some less than glowing feedback. If you need more information you can contact me directly via PM. (I honestly have never done that so do not know how it is done.

I purchased flat and pleated OEM dark red vinyl and non-OEM piping for my 1963 Hawk back in 2008 and was very pleased. I gave them dimensions for the pleat width and they dielectricly pleated the flat vinyl and it looked just like Studebaker had done it. I also purchased dark red cut-pile carpet which they sewed together and I think it looks great. At the same time, I ordered extra yardage for rebuilding my door panels and I placed a piece on the rear dash behind the rear seat. I have nothing bad to say about them as I had a very positive experience with them.

On time. Perfect match. Quality material.

I have seen some of their work and it is very impressive but you will have to be very patient with them. Plan about a year ahead.

I have had good luck. One point if you are buying material from them, insist that it all comes as one piece from the same roll. Sometimes there can be weave or slight color variances.
