I have looked through the forums here on seat fabrics and seen one source recommended SMS. They offer a product but it doesn't match what is in my car, I'm wondering if there are other suppliers that might offer something like this (see attachment)

Thanks to all responders, to answer the questions:

- I looked at the website for SMS, and their sample did not seem to match the car, so yes I can contact them with the trim codes to see if they supply this material

- I'm attaching photos of the front seat which needs the attention most, and the fabric is a match for the photos from "Let the ride decide" It appears you may have some new old stock seat covers if so let me know I would like to buy hem if they are available

- There is a photo of the trim code its 55 so that's what I'd like to locate if possible.

The design of the seat covers is kind complex, not sure if an average car upholstery shop could reproduce this sort of thing?? I would be interested if anyone here has done this or who they worked with to do it??

Here are the details of trim code 55 and a photo of the actual cloth. The set shown above looks like it might be correct if it is for a two door but if not or not available, you might send SMS this photo. Downside is the photo may not have enough detail. Better would be if you can find somewhere under the seat or back where the upholstery is fastened to the seat support metal and might have a bit of excess material that can be cut off. If they get a fabric sample they will check what is available and send back small samples of the closest match.

Don,
I donít think I have any 41 trim, but will look.

Cruiser,
I think the driver side back is the only code 55 I have, but I need to check.

I'm interested even if the back seat is all you have, if you have both that would be ideal. I'm going to a upholstery shop next week and see what they can do.
