59 SportSub - 2021-02-13 11:11 AM It took 23 months (Dec. 2018-Nov. 2020) for the door panels for my '56 Hudson Hornet 2 dr. Back in March 2020 I ordered door panels for my '59 Desoto 4 dr hardtop. Lets see how long it takes this time...

I have heard they do great work, but that is a truly frightening turn-around time!  Did you have to pester them?

At first I contacted them every 3-4 months and they would reply "we're checking into it". I then had so much going on
I forgot about them. All of a sudden in late Oct. 2020 I got a notice on my card of a charge from SMS, and an email from UPS.
5 days later they showed up.

That said, they look amazing!

I'm surprised they didn't charge your card right away. They charged mine while I was on the phone ordering.

They took a deposit when I ordered. About 40%.

I'm just surprised you got to talk to an actual person!

If you're ordering stock material that they just have to cut and roll up, it takes anywhere from a week to a month. Anything custom, you're going to be waiting a long time.

...a long, long time.  

 

I'm going to have to call.  Sitting around waiting for it to show up is probably not going to work out very well.

The current issue of Hemmings Classic car has a story about SMS but I haven't read it yet.

I called this past week to get an idea of what the upholstery would run for my car.

About $3800 shipped. Certainly not the same price for a Chevy! Then again, I won't pass myself at every show, either.

Seat covers- I send the old ones for patterns, about 8-10 month turnaround (!)

Door panels- 4-6 month turnaround. I don't recall if they wanted the old ones or not.

Carpet and headliner are about three weeks.

Now I have to find a trim shop around here that can/will actually do it, unless I can find out how.

They no longer take calls for order status.  You have to send an email.  I sent an email stating they had estimated my order would be sent to me in December.  Kim sent an response quickly.  In her response, she said they were waiting to see if I was going to send stainless trim to them to install or if I would install it myself.  There is no stainless trim on the 58 Coronet door panels.  She said it will be ready at the end of April.  I'm not going to hold my breath.
