SMS auto fabric stocks reproduction original materials.  Start there and get in touch with a local upholstery shop.

Thank you. I have contacted SMS and they will send a sample for me to check the match.

Just be aware they take time. A lot of time. Expect the sample in a month. After ordering and paying the full amount expect at least three months waiting before you have the materials.

Just to add, almost any upholstery shop with any history of working on old cars will be very aware of SMS Auto Fabrics. When I had my seats redone my local old school upholstery shop were able to order my Sandalwood Dover fabric for my seats direct from SMS st a discounted price.

   If you are doing just the front seats because the back ones are fine, and in many cases they are, make sure you get a large sample to make sure they match. They probably made different run lots and they can be a few shades off and you won't see it until until you reinstall them. A small sample may not show the difference.  I ran into this when I did my 76 Coupe De Ville.  good luck

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Norm
