Got a notice today from SMS Auto Fabrics advertising a 19% sale, first time in their 43 years of business. Apparently it applies to everything they sell. I have no connection to them, just a past customer. If you aren't in a hurry they do have a good product line.

However: "Local government restrictions put in place to minimize the COVID-19 outbreak have limited the amount of workers we can have in our building, and will likely limit our manufacturing and order fulfillment". I interpret that as saying they are essentially shut down, but they are happy to accept your money now, and they'll get to it when they can. What happens to your money if he dies from this virus? Just something to think about.

I personally have had great dealings with a Doug , but I know how he works and his he doesn’t always deliver .
I’m with Nathan on this one ,Doug knows not so many will b spending now , so he knows getting any money in is a good thing to keep paying his rent etc.. and if he doesn’t deliver then it’s tough luck to the customer , so they just keep surviving by having people pay ahead . He isn’t offering this to help you out believe me .
If Doug was serious he would catch up on all the outstanding orders while not so many are spending , so that then he gets his full staff on board he would b caught up and can make up orders quicker than ever . Or re organise things etc , there is plenty he could do in this quiet time . He just wants your money and worry about the rest later . Be wary if I was you , he might get a glut of orders and you could b waiting longer than ever !

I went out on a limb and ordered four panels (door and rear) for the Coronet!  I was going to order seat covers, but you have to mail in your old ones for patterns - I didn't have any.  I noticed it was payment in full.  I asked about timeline - she said probably end of the year.  We'll see.  I have heard SMS does great work on the panels - and they have the only game in town!

Try and pay using a credit card then if no delivery in a reasonable time frame, you have some recourse , same with PayPal.

I have a roll of correct gold vinyl from SMS that I never used, if interested. That, along with a new white convertible top ('57 Dodge) and a lot of other surplus items will soon be offered for sale here prior to going to ebay.

I picked up a roll of original '56 Fury cloth as well that I'll probably never use. I should sell it as well.

57DODGECONV - What Color are you going with on your 58 ?

Green is the interior color - they sent me a fabrick sample, vinyl sample, and carpet sample along with an image of what the door panels would look like.

One of my projects for this spring is to organize all my surplus and get photos for a listing. I still need to figure out what I might need for the wagon project, though.

I took advantage of the sale and ordered yesterday. they seemed responsive to my inquiries. I did not ask about shipmen time since they say up front tha they are working with a reduced staff. I am not in a big hurry, will let everyone know when it has shipped. Saved me over 4200 by taking advantage of the sale.

Both actually. Approximately 6-8 emails getting samples, determining what I needed and how much of it. I then emailed requesting an invoice for the order, and in minutes she called and took my credit card information, paid invoice followed minutes later..
