SMS auto fabrics updated
#1
SMS is the only vendor that sell the correct white comfort weave that matches the bucket seats on my 1973 convertible.  The TMI   comfort weave seat covers are not even close to matching the original. SMS want 179.00 a yard for the white comfort weave. Does any one know of any other vendor that might sell the white comfort weave by the yard? I want to have my front seats done but this is looking like a budget buster.


Thanks


John

I'm pretty sure SMS is the only outfit left with original fabric. There is not enough demand for reproducing the comfort weave so unless you accept the stamped vinyl repro, that's it.

I checked into the 73 Medium Blue comfort weave a few years back and I'm recalling it was back then even more $$ that your white / grey currently.

I still need to sort out my white interior as well. I got a quote from SMS last year. Can’t remember exactly how much , but it looks like the price has gone up a bit!
Does anybody know how many yards of comfort weave are used for the front seats and back?

My measurements for just the comfortweave inserts rounded up to allow for tuck, seams, pattern match, and etc...

Each front seat 60" x 16"

Backseat each side: 48" x 16"

I would check with SMS. I am sure they know what is needed.

SMS told me over the phone that it would take 2 yards of white vinyl and 2 1/2 yard of comfort weave to  the front bucket seats. I did not ask about the back seat because of the cost and mine is in good shape.

SMS did not buy the material they bought the machines that makes the material. They make it new not old stock.
You will not find another supplier for the material that is correct. It is like a computer program for the color of threads and how many.

The original Comfortweave is well worth the cost. The stamped vinyl looks the part - sort of. It is nowhere near as "comfortable" as the original, which actually did breathe. Helps on the warm summer days.
