    I admit my days of mainstream mopar like 66-70 B bodies, etc is long gone. Now there is my 62 dart 330 more door project and the even odder 62 Lancer!
    A few questions. Is SMS the only source for quality vinyl? I may or may not go original material.
    I guess I am at the mercy of the local upholstry shops for seat covers, door panels, and headliners.

    I've been personally at SMS Fabrics a few weeks ago to meet Doug Pollock. I was looking for samples for my 62 Dart. This guy is amazing. They do have all colors and patterns used in the 60s. There was even a sample book of Dodge you could check. He showed us all material on a big roll to see the pattern and color combinations for seats, door panels, headliner. I can absolutely recommend this place.

    Yes, they do fabricate them in house. You have to order way in advance. He told me around 6 or more month for delivery.
    Here are few pics of SMS.

    Thanks for the info, I have ordered materials from them decades ago and they have since changed hands I think. I will get a price form them for the door panels. I do not really care for the oem fable like on my 62 Dart and 62 Lancer, I prefer all vinyl.
    I have a friend with a 62 Lancer wagon, he had a local Dallas shop make his door panels and they were $1000, so anywhere will be expensive I bet!
    I want to keep the $ spent on these 2 cars reasonable as their value is not that great!!

    I got rid of the rusted panels, epoxied, sealed, smoothed out some dings, left some just so it won't be perfect!!! ... urethane single stage topcoat. I have to get the old 1 ton running and make the road trip to trade for the poly 318. It ill be just a fun cruiser.
