If  you have a decent interior shop willing to work with you they should have multiple sources and should be able to come very close to original.  I deal with a very reputable auto interior shop here in Raleigh NC that's been in business since 1973 and they matched it very well on my 64 CDV back when I replaced the carpet. I just took him a sample of the cut pile from beneath the seat and they matched up to a cut and color that was very close.

Be prepared to wait 6 months or more when dealing with SMS and expect them to send you wrong or dirty materials at least once... It's probably safer (but for sure it's a lot faster) to just go to Oregon and pick up your stuff in person.

Temperature gauge not working properly

Posted by SK on March 23, 2022 at 2:43pm 2 Comments

The temperature gauge of my 63 Eldorado does not work properly.

It goes slowly all the way up and stays there, while the true temperature is around 155-160 F (water in the radiator and/or the top of the thermostat housing).

Where should I start to solve the problem? The gauge itself, the temperature sensor, or the wiring? Or something else? The sensor is a new (aftermarket part)…
